Avon excited for first year in the CCC
AVON, Aug, 19 -- Third-year head coach Jim Caouette is excited – which isn’t a surprise. He is always optimistic about his team and his players. But he feels he has some talented players that could help Avon compete in the CCC Div. III Eastern Division race this fall.

Avon returns three All-Pequot Uncas Division players WR/TE Geoff Kirk, tackle Harrison Gill and linebacker Teddy Allmendinger, who ran for a team-high 1,278 yards and 13 TDs last year. Quarterback Ian McDonald returns along with Avon’s two leading receivers from a year ago – Kirk (17 receptions, 428 yards, 5 TDs) and Luke Meaney (12-235, 2 TDs).

Avon’s first scrimmage will be Monday, Aug. 24 at Watertown at 10 a.m.

Long-time Avon High football coach Glenn McLellan has died
AVON, August 4 – Glenn McLellan, a physical education teacher who coached the Avon High football team for 26 years, died on Sunday at his South Carolina home at the age of 77. A graduate of the Gilbert School in Winsted and the University of Connecticut, McLellan coached varsity football, wrestling, baseball and track and field at Avon High.

McLellan coached football at Avon from 1966-91 and in 1994, compiling a school-record 130 victories and led the Falcon football team to four Northwest Conference championships and five North Central Connecticut Conference titles.

“We had some great games against Avon. It was classic high school football,” said former Farmington High football coach Paul Maskery who coached against McLellan from 1969 to 1982. “They were very well prepared. Glenn used (the) talent (of his boys) to the utmost.”​

Falcons finish season with big win over Yellowjackets
AVON, Nov. 25, 2014 — The Avon High football team ended its season and its membership in the Pequot Conference in style on Tuesday evening with a 48-7 thrashing of longtime rival Gilbert/Northwestern. “Record-wise, it wasn’t where we wanted to be,” Falcons head coach Jim Caouette said. “But I’m so proud of these kids because they fight and they fight hard, every single game for 48 minutes.” 

Avon (7-4, 7-2 Pequot Uncas) came out of the locker room fired up, scoring on its first five possessions, racing out to a 34-0 lead.

Canton rallies to beat Avon in OT
CANTON, Nov. 15, 2014 – Twice, Avon took a seven-point lead over Canton in Saturday’s Pequot Conference Uncas Division showdown. But the Falcons couldn't extend the lead. 

The Warriors forced three Avon turnovers. They missed a potential game-winning field goal with 21 seconds remaining in regulation but made two big defensive stops in overtime. And then, Canton won it in OT when Dan Delos scored on a five-yard run for a 27-21 victory.

The victory gives Canton (9-1, 8-0) the Pequot Uncas Division title – its first league championship since 1958 and keeps the Warriors in the hunt for their first-ever CIAC playoff berth. Avon (6-4, 6-2 Pequot Uncas) saw their Class M playoff hopes all but vanish.

“Our kids fought hard and played hard,” Avon coach Jim Caouette said. “The bottom line is that if we don’t turn the ball over twice (on fumbles) again, we win the football game. I guess I’m not doing my job if I haven’t taught them how to not turn the ball over in crucial situations.”
