Young, Seaver, & Skowronek may sound like a law firm. But in reality, those are the last names of the three local seniors who participated in Connecticut’s second annual Super-100 all-star football game at Rentschler Field on Saturday.
The game featured the top 100 seniors from last season competing with and against one other. For many of the participating players it was be the last football game they’ll played in the state of Connecticut and, for all, it was their last high school game. The seniors were split into two teams, Team Constitution and Team Nutmeg, using a draft system.
Tommy Seaver, who starred at Rocky Hill as a tight end and linebacker, was selected by Team Constitution, who was led by Xavier coach Sean Marinan. Seaver played outside linebacker and was in on a handful of tackles to contribute in a 29-20 Constitution victory.
Quarterbacks Stephen Barmore and Jalen Ollie, along with running backs Harold Cooper and Xavier’s Andrew Meoli torched Team Nutmeg in the first half, giving the eventual victors an insurmountable 27-0 halftime lead.
Geoff Skowronek, who dominated both sides of the line of scrimmage at Wethersfield, started at right tackle for Team Nutmeg and held his own against a fierce Constitution pass-rush. He’s now off to protect the quarterbacks at Assumption College.
Chris Young, who shattered every rushing record at Rocky Hill, also played for Team Nutmeg. The Springfield-bound running back ran the ball well in the first half and then was instrumental in the team’s second half comeback attempt with his terrific pass protection.
All three players also played on various special teams.
The all-star game was sponsored by the Connecticut High School Coaches Association, with all the proceeds from the game going towards athletic scholarships for the four state chapters of the National Football Foundation.
