Coach’s Comment: “The Clippers will have a battle between two players to see who will become the starting QB. Senior Evan Graham and junior Aidan Thomas are in a showdown. The offensive and defensive lines have shown great gains in the weight room over the last 365 days and look to be improved in size and strength. We will still be young in the skill positions and the team will have to show it can play against the big boys in Division I. As we see it there are several favorites, but Londonderry is on top with Exeter and BG on their tails. And do not forget about Keene on the other side of the state.”
