The two teams finished tied in the Class LL standings last year, with Greenwich getting a state tournament nod on a tiebreaker, and Trumbull heading home after Thanksgiving. This early game could again be key to both of these teams’ playoff fates.
Greenwich is in its third year under head coach John Marinelli, and will be relatively young with only 22 seniors out of 112 players. Gavin Muir, a junior, takes over at QB, and he has a key target with wide receiver Henry Saleeby, a senior. Lineman Nick Mcintosh and LBs Robert Lanni and Finbar Doyle, all seniors, lead the defense.
Trumbull has Markeese Woods back at running back, and he should be the focal point of the offensive attack. There is also some new blood on offense, with junior Colton Nicholas taking over at quarterback. Defensively, the Eagles senior Odai Dayob at tackle, and junior Joe Turner at linebacker.
