submitted by Coach Lou Longo “Surreal … Unbelievable … Incredible … Special …” – these were just some of the words being heard after the Fourth Grade Razorbacks continued their impressive run in the New England American Youth Football championship game on Sunday at Stellos Stadium in Nashua against the Madison Tigers representing Connecticut. Both teams came in undefeated as they played for a chance to represent New England in Florida the first week of December for a chance to be crowned National Fourth Grade Champs. For Pelham- Windham, this was not on the player’s minds as none of them knew this was a possibility as their attitude all year has been one game at a time. In addition, the coaches prepared the parents for this possibility but all agreed not to tell the kids until after the game should they win. The Razorback boys came out loose but faced a powerful and disciplined offense that marched the ball downfield on their opening drive. Having only given up a total of 6 points in 10 games this season, this was unchartered territory for the Razorback defense and when faced with a Tigers first and goal on their 10 yard line, the defense dug in their heels and said not today, at least not this early in the game. Brett Lindsay, Noah Lynch, Devyn Tucci, Charlie Beneze, Blake Woekel and Cam Homsey filed the trenches at the line forcing a third down from the 5-yard line and then linebackers Garrett Hitchens, Ryan Marotta, AJ “Cag” Caggianelli and Jacoby Pratt stepped up to make sure the Tigers did not get in. Then it was

Tommy Emrick on fourth down who was alone on his cornerback island and had to fight off a blocker as well as the runner which he did and stuffed the Tiger ball carrier on the Razorback 3-yard line to give the ball to the Razorbacks. Emrick was fired up and took the Razorbacks first offensive snap around the left edge and followed blocking by Homsey Caggianelli, Steven and Woekel with a great seal from Gannon Fast and Marotta as well as Owen Haskins, LT Debay, Thalan Berger-Benoit and Lindsay for a 97- yard touchdown and pandemonium in the stadium. But this Tiger team was here for a reason and they stuffed the conversion for a 6-0 Razorback lead. The first half went back and forth as the Tigers continued to move the ball but were kept at bay by Beneze, Caggianelli, Marotta, Shawn McAdam and the crew. On offense, the potent Razorback offenses were held in check as the Tigers held them to limited if not zero first downs in the first half. With a few minutes left in the 1st half, the Tigers finally busted through on a nice cutback run to tie the score at 6-6. But the Razorback defense would not get down and stopped the conversion attempt as the game went to halftime tied up.


Adjustments were made at halftime


by the Razorbacks as they boys were still loose. Anticipating an onside kick by the Tigers, the return unit of Lindsay, Riley Millette, Brandan Mercier, Riley Perrin, Debay and Emrick did their part to “spread, hit and follow” as the ball went right to “Cag” who followed the wall down the left sideline untouched for TD and a

12-6 Razorback lead. Once again the conversion was stuffed by the Tigers. The Razorback defense then took over and forced a Tiger turnover and then it was Lindsay and the Hogs turn on offense pounding the ball as Hitchens and Lindsay followed back-mates Cody Stevens and Tucci through huge holes created by Millette, Zander Mondejar, Tyler Blunt, JJ Jepson, Nick Milano, Woekel and McAdam with Hitchens pounding in a 15 yard TD run and an 18-6 Razorback lead. Looking at a tough Tigers goal-line defense, coach asked kicker Cody Stevens how his leg felt and Stevens wanted it so the Razorbacks went for the kicking extra point which is rare in 4th grade. A great snap by Haskins followed by a perfect hold from Millette and Stevens split the uprights as the crowd erupted and a 20-6 Razorback lead. Defense once again took over as the “Bulls” led by Jason Rutherford, Reagan Brunelle, Stevie Doe, Nicholas Blake, Manny Baisley, Pratt and Perrin shut down the Tigers running attack. With momentum and fresh legs, Marotta and his “Boars” unit went on offense and as they have all year, the blocking of Fast, Robbie Furman, Shane Regan, Haskins, Nicolas Torres, Jake Cragen and Nathan Binette controlled the line of scrimmage and Marotta followed a huge block by Beneze then by Berger and Debay as he galloped 50 yards for a touchdown. After a penalty on the conversion it was the “X-Men” who converted the extra point as Homsey found Cag in the end zone on a beautiful pass and a 27-6 lead in the 4th quarter. Then it was more defense as Blunt, Mondejar, Jepson

and Milano brought the heat on the Tigers quarterback forcing a pass that was picked off by Hitchens. The scoring was finished off just as the game had started as Emrick had his own interception and took it back 65 yards for the game’s final TD and score of 33-6 where it was not an indication of how tough the game was. Afterwards, it was during the trophy presentation as talk of more practices had the Razorback boys confused until they finally heard they were going to Florida to represent New England in the National Championships and the boys erupted followed by chants of “Mickey Mouse” in the locker room as they celebrated their efforts, focus, determination and team first attitude. Next up is Orlando, FL, where the Razorbacks Fourth Graders will compete against other teams from


across the country for the chance to be called National Champion. Getting 34 kids to Florida in a short amount of time is never easy, especially financially. Fundraising is starting in both Windham and Pelham and any and all help is greatly appreciated as boys will be canning, selling cookie dough and raffles and auctions are in the works. Please keep checking www.pwrazorbacks.com for updates. If you would like to donate money or raffle/auction items, it would be greatly appreciated. Contact Coach Lou Longo at 556-1091, Kelly Homsey at 475-4211 or Jennifer Barry at 479- 0054 for more information. If you see these boys in the next few weeks, let them know they have shown a maturity beyond their years in representing their towns and the Razorbacks organization.
