NORWALK — The Ruden Report hosted its third annual FCIAC Football Media Day on Tuesday at Bogey’s in Norwalk. Fifteen of the 17 teams were in attendance. For many of us, it was the first time to see the coaches and players from a number of schools since preseason training started.
Early September is a less than ideal time to start making bold predictions. Scrimmages are about as accurate an indicator as NFL exhibition games. We are unfamiliar with many of the new players that have been thrust into greater roles. Too much weight is often placed on tradition until the first games are played, which, with the new FCIAC schedule, except for Westhill meeting Bridgeport Central on Saturday will be delayed a week (two weeks for St. Joseph).
