Belmont Hill Football Team Downs Wilbraham & Monson to Capture 2016 New England Championship
In the first quarter of the first game of the season, Belmont Hill found itself trailing New Hampton 18-0. After the previous season's disappointing finish, it was an alarming start to the new season. But the team maintained its composure and shut down New Hampton the rest of the way to earn a decisive 43-18 victory.
That game started the momentum for a 6-2 regular season, with the team finishing as co-champions of the ISL. Matched against Wilbraham & Monson Academy, who finished the regular season at 7-1, the team would play arguably its best game of the year. Led by quarterback Zach Geddes, who ran for 128 yards and two touchdowns, and passed for 120 yards, the team never trailed in the game, and answered every rally their opponents could muster. Two first-quarter touchdowns on runs by Isaiah Collins and Jaylen Bailey got the boys off to a 14-0 start, and an eventual 14-3 halftime lead.

Rivers Football Player Receives MHSFCA Costello Courageous Player Award
Nick Revers ’15 missed his entire junior season of football at Rivers after sustaining a serious knee injury before the year began. Through many months of hard work and rehab, Nick was able to return for his senior season and because of that, he has been recognized as one of eight statewide recipients of the Coach Paul F. Costello Courageous Player Award.
The Massachusetts High School Football Coaches Association gives this award to players who have “played physically challenged, endured a hardship, or served as an inspiration to their team. The player nominated must have demonstrated teamwork, spirit, and sportsmanship while playing above and beyond.”
Football coach Dan Keohane, who felt that Nick embodied each of the award’s criteria, nominated him at the conclusion of the season feeling he deserved recognition for the hard work he put in to rejoin the team as a senior.
“I was very thankful that Coach Keohane nominated me for the award,” Nick said. “It made me think of all the people who helped make last season such a success. Not just my teammates and coaches, but also the doctor who did the surgery and all of the PT people who helped me get back and have it all culminate in such a great season.
Nick will be honored at the MHSFCA Annual Awards Banquet on April 25 at Lantana in Randolph alongside the other seven recipients of the award...More Information
