The Foran High football team captured its ninth straight Thanksgiving Day victory over crosstown rival Jonathan Law, posting a 43-21 win at the Vito DeVito Sports Complex.
It was a record-setting day for the Lions (7-3), who finished off their fifth consecutive winning season.
“I remember my first two years, we lost our first 17 games,” Foran head coach Jeff Bevino said. “It’s come a long way. It’s a tribute to our kids for buying in and trusting us… We have a boatload of staff. I have a great group of coaches and our kids are awesome.”
Senior halfback/defensive back Brett Huber caught four passes for 40 yards, breaking the state record for single-season receptions of 102. Huber’s first reception of the game from Lion quarterback Lance DiNatale went for negative yardage late in the first quarter. That gave Huber, who also owns the career reception record of of 208 catches, 103 receptions on the season, shattering the record of the late Pete Demmerle — a former New Canaan High legend that went on to star collegiately at Notre Dame in the 1970s.
“He does everything,” Bevino said of Huber. “He returns kicks, he throws passes for touchdowns, he runs the football, he catches the football."
