PLP Presents to CT Youth Coaches
Terry O'Neil presented Saturday, June 9, to youth coaches of the Fairfield County Football League (FCFL). The event was hosted at New Canaan (CT) High School by Lou Marinelli, the most successful coach in Connecticut history with 12 state championships and a career record of 340-103-7.
Marinelli, entering his 38th season at New Canaan, and Steve Filippone, former coach of Daniel Hand High School, Madison, CT, have collaborated recently with PLP to rally support for significant reduction in practice contact. PLP has made eight appearances in the state this year. Coach Filippone is presently leading the Connecticut High School Coaches' Association (CHSCA) in drafting a proposal for submission to the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC), state governing body of high school athletics.
O'Neil spoke about the issue Tuesday, June 5, in a live interview with news anchor Kevin Nathanof WVIT-TV, Hartford. Click here to watch the interview.
