Darien leads FCIAC standouts at Walter Camp Football Foundation event

The FCIAC will be well-represented at the Walter Camp Football Foundation’s Ninth Annual “Breakfast of Champions,” which will be held at 8:30 a.m., today at the Omni Hotel in New Haven.

The event is part of the Walter Camp Weekend, which also includes the National Awards Banquet at the Yale Commons on Saturday night.

For the second consecutive season, the Darien Blue Wave has been named the winner of the Joseph W. Kelly Award winner, given to the top high school football team in Connecticut.

The Wave was 13-0 this season, marking its second straight unbeaten regular season. Darien has won 25 consecutive games and two straight CIAC Class LL titles.

Darien head coach Rob Trifone is also a nominee for the foundation’s Coach of the Year award, and the winner will be announced today.
