CCHS teams celebrate end of fall season: Fourth winning season for varsity football

The Concord-Carlisle High School varsity football team is off to a 7-2 record and has clutched its fourth winning season in a row under head coach Dick Kerr. The losses have come against Bellingham, last year's Division 5 Super Bowl champions, and Acton-Boxborough, last year's Division 2 Super Bowl champions. CCHS has been led by Carlisle seniors Greg Roberts, Peter Hantzis, Mike Mancini and Zane Schweer. Roberts caught many clutch passes for first downs throughout the season while Hantzis capitalized on Roberts' touchdowns, kicking PATs (Points After Touchdown) and also kicking field goals for CCHS. Mancini was called up to first-string center in the middle of the season after Tim Butler, the right guard, sustained an ankle injury against Lincoln-Sudbury. Schweer started at cornerback against Boston Latin and gained a reputation as the most dedicated player on the team.

Concord-Carlisle also received support from junior Danny Hoffman, who started at right halfback and free safety. Hoffman's speed and strength added to Concord-Carlisle's already potent backfield. At free safety, Hoffman was always there to make the play or pick off a pass.

The Concord-Carlisle JV football team is 4-3 with many players looking to advance to varsity play next year.

Concord-Carlisle varsity football will face off with Bedford, at Bedford, on Thursday, November 28, Thanksgiving Day, at 10 a.m. Junior varsity ends their season on Monday, November 25.
