The game against West Haven always was a big one. West Haven ran the Wing T offense and ran it well.
Shelton High School freshman football coach Rob Darby had seen this story before. Those West Haven teams always had three or four quality athletes who could run the Wing T to near perfection. This was Connecticut high school football in the early 2000s. Few schools were lining up four wide receivers and putting the quarterback in the shotgun. But find a good, consistent offense with enough deception to fool a defense – like the Wing T – and a team could win a lot of games.
