NEW CANAAN — Alex LaPolice spent last Saturday afternoon at his future home.
His preference was to be in his current one.
“I hated the bye week. Hated it,” said LaPolice, the star receiver and defensive back for the New Canaan football team, echoing a common refrain following Friday night’s 35-2 rout of Staples. “It was great to get out here. We were all chomping at the bit.”
Instead of playing what would have been the Rams’ sixth game of the season, LaPolice went with his father to Harvard, the school he will be attending next year, which hosted Lafayette and former teammate Michael Root.
