East Boston High School Football Season Begins

The East Boston High football season gets underway this week.  The Jets will travel over to Jamaica Plain and clash with English High at 6 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 11.  Practice began on August 24 with a good turnout of new and returning players.  Thus far, two have been designated captains: Edwin Munguia and Jack Hartnett.  John Parziale begins his sixth season as headcoach with a record of 30-23.   For many years, he was top assistant to John Souza

Last March, the MIAA approved a plan to extend a new football play-off system for a third year.  Schedules are set for September and October.  Games in November will be determined by a point system in which EMass and CMass schools will be split into two groups: play-off teams and non-qualifiers.  The goal of the new system, begun in 2013, is to increase the number of play-off teams and lower the number of superbowls.   Last October 31, a 24-20 loss to Lowell Catholic in the quarterfinal round ended the Jets chance to advance for a superbowl appearance.  The season ended with a Thanksgiving Day win over South Boston by a score of 24-6 and season record of 6-5.  All are welcome to come out and support the team at the home games at Sartori Stadium.
