NORWALK — If Norwalk coach Sean Ireland is excited about the future, he has every right to be.
The Bears have a lot of talent hitting the gridiron this fall and, while it’s young talent, a handful of players are already experienced at the varsity level — especially at the skill positions.
It’s an equation that — if the players play up to their potential — could leave Norwalk as one of the bigger surprises in the FCIAC this fall.
“We’re extremely young, but that being said we do have pieces coming back and they’re important pieces coming back, too,” Ireland said. “Even though we graduated a lot, we have a strong nucleus back and the young kids have been tremendous so far. We’re very pleased with what we’ve been seeing.”
