Rams Win CIAC State Championship

Rams_Champs_2016 The New Canaan High School Football Rams are the 2016 CIAC Class L State Champions! The Rams defeated top-seeded Windsor (35-20) on Saturday, Dec. 10, at New Britain’s Veteran’s Stadium in the Class L final match. The bitterly cold weather didn’t prevent the many enthusiastic fans who travelled from New Canaan from cheering the Rams on to victory. The win closed out the Rams' winning season (12-1) on the highest note possible, and it marked the fourth straight year New Canaan has won this coveted award.


“Saturday’s CIAC state championship victory validates the hard work, determination and skill our players demonstrated all season long,” said Rams Head Coach Lou Marinelli. “I am very proud of every member of this Rams team and my entire coaching staff for everything they did in putting together this championship season.”
