New Hampshire Football Report

CHaD coaches selected

BEDFORD — Londonderry High School’s Jimmy Lauzon (East) and Souhegan High School’s Robin Bowkett (West) have been named the head coaches for the 2020 CHaD East-West All-Star Game, which features more than 80 of the best high school players in New Hampshire and benefits programs at Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock.

Lauzon, who is in his sixth season as the head coach at Londonderry, guided the East to a 17-13 victory in the 2019 game.  This will be his fifth year serving in the CHaD game, his second straight as head coach.  The Manchester native began his career at 22 years old, coaching at Manchester West and Saint Anselm College before assuming his current role in 2014.  Last fall, he guided the Lancers to a Division I South championship and an 8-2 record.

Bowkett takes the reins after making his CHaD debut under West head coach Eric Brown in 2019.  Bowkett, an Amherst native, is in his third season leading his alma mater in Division II.  A year ago Bowkett was named the Division II South coach of the year and led the Sabers to the state semifinals.  A former player at Nichols College, Bowkett has coached since 2006 with stops at Nichols, Salve Regina University, Saint Anselm College, and, most recently, Lake Forest (Ill.) Academy.

Official nominations will be sent to all high school coaches in the state in mid-October.  The CHaD coaching staffs will select their players in late November, followed by the kick-off tour and orientation in January at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon.

The 2020 CHaD Football Game is slated for late June with kick-off time and venue information to be announced in the coming months.  Last year’s contest raised almost $250,000, including $80,000 generated by the players.  Additional info can be found at
