Avon to play on Thanksgiving for first time this fall
AVON, May 26 – For the first time in its history, the Avon High football team will play football on Thanksgiving this fall. The Falcons are scheduled to host rival Gilbert/ Northwestern on Thursday morning, Nov. 27 at 10:30 a.m.

“There is nothing like the atmosphere of a Thanksgiving Day football game,” Avon High coach Jim Caouette said. “It brings so much out of the kids and the fans. It is really a tremendous thing for high school football.”

In its 54-year history, Avon has never played on Thanksgiving or even on the week of Thanksgiving. They are one of the few schools in the state never to have played on Thanskgiving. Caouette wanted to play a Thanksgiving game and he found a willing opponent in Gilbert/Northwestern.

Murphy, Griffin named All-State
AVON, January 15, 2014 – Two Avon High players earned All-State honors in balloting by coaches in the Connecticut High School Coaches Association (CHSCA). Jimmy Murphy and Stephen Griffin were named to the Class L team. For Murphy, it was his second straight year on the team. Murphy ran for over 1,000 yards, scored 25 TDs and was a dynamic player on both sides of the ball. He was named to the team as a defensive back and he probably didn’t play a single play there. He was the running back and a linebacker. But he is on the team.

Griffin was a four-year starter for the Falcons and was recognized for his play at linebacker. He also scored nine TDs, ran for 267 yards and had 138 yards receiving.

Seven Falcons named to All-Pequot West All-Star team
AVON, January 1, 2014 -- Seven Avon High football players were named to the Pequot Conference’s All-Western Division All-Star team. QB Noah Hahn, RB/LB Jimmy Murphy, WR Dylan Marquis, lineman Ryan Rogers, kicker John Burdick, DB Avik Vimal and LB Stephen Griffin were recognized in voting by the league coaches.

Murphy was named the Western Division co-player of the year along with Gilbert/NWR’s fantastic running back and defensive back Tony Ortiz. Murphy was a catalyst for the Falcons this season. He became the 11th player in school history to run for more than 1,000 yards in a single season, rushing or 1,149 yards and 19 TDs. Defensively, he was a stalwart at linebacker consistently making big plays.

Hahn rewrote the Avon High record books when it comes to passing. He completed a school-record 101 passes for 1,667 yards and 25 touchdowns – also school records. Marquis led the team in receptions (25) and TDs (8). Rogers helped anchor an offensive line that allowed Murphy and Hahn to flourish this season and score 376 points – the second-highest total in school history.

Burdick connected on 40 of 44 extra points this season and made four of five field goal attempts. Vimal shared the team lead in interceptions (three) with Marquis.Griffin was a versatile linebacker who started all four years of his career.
