Foran returns a solid offensive line that coach Tom Drew hopes will stand up while the Lions’ untested skill players learn on the go in 2021.
The offensive line will be anchored by a handful of veterans including Barry Held, Jacob Madarang, Simon Collette, Aiden Grant, Brandon Payne, Jason Cruz and Paul Gonzalves.
Jack Cushman and Brett Rholeder, a pair of juniors, are competing to start at quarterback where they will run Foran’s no-huddle, spread offense. Foran’s receivers will be led by Dean Ross in the slot, Joe Gaetano, Kyle Pokornowski, Mike Cobain and a big target in 6-3, 200-pound Kyle Zarnoch.
Drew also said Foran will be deep at running back with senior Anthony (A.J.) Edmond and junior Mathew Miller.
Foran will look to improve upon its 249 points scored two years ago.
On the defensive side, Drew said the Lions are “inexperienced, but hungry to prove themselves on the field.” The Lions allowed 213 points back in 2019 and this group is anxious to improve upon that success.
“Our defense has been the strength and heart of our team with its energy and toughness,” Drew said. “We will look to continue with that tradition in 2021. The kids have been working their butts off this offseason. We are looking to make some noise this season.”
Foran will compete with Bassick, Branford, East Haven, Guilford, Jonathan Law and Lyman Hall for the SCC Tier 3 title.
