BRAINTREE - Camp kicks off Monday, Aug. 19, and the pads go on a few days later. The players, and coaches, on the Stoughton High football team have their eyes glued to the calendar.
After falling short of the Hockomock League’s Davenport Division title a year ago despite a 9-2 finish (2-2 in league, behind 3-1 Sharon), the Black Knights have, unofficially, started the preseason process. Stoughton, like many other programs in the area, worked on their skills, specifically, throwing and catching, in a summer passing league. Dedham, Milton, and Randolph, along with host Braintree, were also represented. Players do not run after the catch, and linebackers are not present.
Stoughton coach Greg Burke and his staff were on the sideline, but only to observe, per state rules.
