Jack Healey Commentary August 30th, 2019

It’s high school football week #1 getting underway tonight and already Rice has to forfeit its game at Hartford even though the two teams will have a controlled scrimmage. Rice suffered several injuries in a scrimmage last week and just didn’t have the numbers to compete in game 1. It’s always disturbing when a team has to forfeit a game and the safety of the players is the most important thing,but it is especially disturbing to see a forfeit in a Division 1 game. In theory Division 1 should never have a numbers problem and if they do why are they in Division 1? Apparently Rice will be OK for next week and the season going forward, but why aren’t they in Division 2?
Here are my picks for week #1:

Mill River over Springfield
Middlebury over Fair Haven. That game will be on nsnsports.net
Burr and Burton over Burlington/South Burlington
Lyndon over Woodstock. That game will be on nsnsports.net
