Video: New Canaan’s Motivational Film Prior To State Final With Darien

I was up at New Canaan High School this morning to work on a feature on the technology the football team uses during the season. It is pretty cool stuff.

Ironically, my visit came after catching the end of Darien’s workout and doing interviews for another story.

Ironic because the New Canaan assistants shared with me the video they showed the players last December at Boyle Stadium, prior to the start of the Class L state championship game with the Blue Wave. (It is a reason, the coaches said, the Rams were a little late taking the field.)

Assistant coach BJ Jones put it together the night before the game. The beginning shows the highlights of Darien celebrating on Dunning Field after winning the teams’ annual Turkey Bowl. What follows are the best plays from the Rams’ season to date.

At the end is the weekly revelation of which player — in this case Teddy Bossidy — would carry the traditional hammer onto the field.

New Canaan ended up winning the rematch, 44-12.


Note: though it says it is 7:47 long, the video ends at about 4:45.

Here it is.
