Big year expected for West Haven football

(WTNH)–The high school football season kicks off on Friday, September 9, and West Haven is primed for a big year.

Head coach Rich Boshea is entering his second year as the Blue Devils’ boss, after serving as Ed McCarthy’s longtime assistant.

Boshea has lots of weapons at his disposal this year. The Westies are always fast, and they return plenty of starters from a year ago.

Although Boshea has kept most things the same, he says he tweaked a few things during practice.

“Instead of doing two-a-days, we went longer so we didn’t have to spend the whole day here anymore,” he said. “We didn’t do three-a-days, we just did one three-hour session. We spent a little more time on special teams than we normally do and we spent as much time as possible improving our defense.”

The Westies open next Friday at Hamden High. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
