Local high school football teams gear up for statewide Quarter-Finals


There’s football fever with high school football teams in Connecticut gearing up for the statewide Quarter-Finals on Tuesday night!

All season long, you cast hundreds of thousands of votes for your favorite team to be our WTNH “Game of the Week.” 

Each week the students were up bright and early showing their school spirit.  You had the marching bands, the cheers and dance squads, and the guys gearing up for the gridiron! 

One of the schools that packed the gym for a 5:30 a.m. pep rally was Cromwell High School.

They sent this letter to our studio after an overtime win against Valley Regional that read: 

“It started a day of excitement, with everyone talking inside and outside of Cromwell High School, about being on Channel 8 and being “The Game of the Week.” We took that energy and played our hearts out. We wanted you to know that you were part of that win!”
