Mansfield to open season in New York

We will play Archbishop Stepinac High School of White Plains, NY.
As usual, this will be a highly competitive game with a very good out-of-state private school. They had a MaxPrep ranking of #18 last year in New York and return many key players from a team that was 7-4 and lost to St. Anthony's in the playoffs.

Finally, the trip will receive no financing from the school district and will be paid for by parents and fundraisers through the Gridiron Club of Mansfield.


We have secured 100 tickets to the Red Sox-Yankees game on Thursday night and plan a tour of the 9/11 memorial and a boat tour to view the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island on Friday.

Courageous Player Award

Cam Nagle

Congratulations to senior football player Cam Nagle who will receive the Massachusetts High School Football Coaches Association Courageous Player Award at an awards banquet on April 27th at Lantana's in Randolph. Cam is one of seven players in the state of Massachusetts who will be honored for "overcoming a physical challenge, enduring a hardship and serving as an inspiration to his team".
Cam was seriously injured in a car accident during the summer of 2012 and missed his junior year of football during the rehabilitation process. He assisted the team during the fall of 2012 by filming all of the games. He returned to the field in his senior year and was a key contributor on the Mansfield HS State Championship team as a defensive back and a member of the special teams.

Leadership Training

The Mansfield coaching staff runs a leadership training seminar once a month for members of the football team.

During these sessions a verity of subjects are covered:
1-Goal setting (Personal life goals, scholastic goals and athletic goals)
2-Handling problem social situations.
3-Involvement in community activities.
4-Honoring the traditions established by their predecessors.
5-Proper nutrition/healthy lifestyles.
6-Team building activities.

These and many other subjects are discussed. Attendance is voluntary.
The object of these seminars is to help make the students a more responsible member of the school and community at large.

The coaching staff believes that it is our responsibility to engage these student athletes in a leadership curriculum. We believe that our student athletes are members of the community first and football players second. By developing the character of our players we believe they will become life-long contributing members of the community.
