Eagles storm onto McDougall Field to make their grand entrance before game time.

With hopes of advancing to the first round of the state playoffs, Trumbull unfortunately fell short on Thanksgiving day. During their deciding game against No. 2 St. Joseph, Trumbull wasn’t able to gain the win they desperately needed; they lost 35-7. Throughout the entire game, Trumbull lacked offensively when getting close to the endzone and wasn’t able to keep up with St. Joe’s scoring. On a high note, senior captain Cooper Dayton was named MVP for the Rumble in Trumbull rivalry game. Although this wasn’t the outcome Trumbull wanted, there are still lots of positives about this season to celebrate. 

The Eagles had many players this season who were threats to the other teams in every matchup. All these players were recognized for their talents and received All-FCIAC awards. The first team offensive awards went to senior Corbin Smith, senior Jake Delfino, and junior Ben Carley. The first team defensive awards went to senior Cooper Dayton, senior Jake Peterson, and senior Owen Solano. Trumbull also had some players on the second team including junior Hunter Agosti for offense and junior Jordan Black for defense. The honorable mention awards went to senior Dylan Moran, senior Kieran Bill, and junior Xavier Richardson. Overall, these players made huge contributions to the team and they are all extremely deserving of these awards.

This year’s team always had a strong mentality and didn’t let anything stand in the way of playing their game. That’s one of the reasons why Trumbull had so much success this season, their confidence thrived. Not to mention, Trumbull had one of the biggest D/O lines in the state which were dominant in all their games.

 The Eagles have changed the dynamic of their program with turning their record around from previous seasons. After being 5-5 in 2018 and 3-7 in 2019, Eagle’s finished this year with a solid 7-3 record. This season set up foundations for next fall and the future of Trumbull Football with head coach Mr. Marce Petroccio.
