I just watched the most painful loss of my life, including games I’ve ever played in. Franklin defeated Medfield on a hail mary with 30 seconds left, 20-16.
Congratulations to the Franklin team and best of luck in winning it all, no shame in getting beat by the SB Champs! The sign of class is as much about how you handle winning as it is losing, and they were classy as hell, congrats and best of luck to you all.
To the Medfield kids, congratulations. Cliches suck at a time like this but we could not be prouder of the season you kids had.
To Coach D’Angelo, thank you. In a day and age when parents have trouble giving even their own kids enough time, you give what seems to be your entire life outside the court room, to the kids of Medfield. A federal judge, cub scout leader and head coach on what appears to be every football team in Medfield. No idea how you do it but it’s greatly appreciated to have role models outside our house that our kids believe in and who conducts themselves with as much integrity and respect as you and your coaches did this year.
To G-man, damn proud of you and the season. Sorry for the genetic hand-me-down footspeed, but you made the most of it and we’re proud of the time, effort and commitment you made.
P.S. Connor B…. You figure out that Focus thing you’re going to go places:)
