The last time Fairfield Prep played in a CIAC state championship football game was 2013, but the last time it won a state title was back in 1988.
Let’s look back on 1988 for a moment.
The title for Prep was the third football state championship won by the school. At the time, it gave them two more CIAC state titles than New Canaan who had only won one to that point, in 1982.
In the time since Prep’s last title, New Canaan has won 11 CIAC state championships, appearing in 15 championship games. The Rams have won state championships in four of the last five years, all in Class L.
