Milford Football Turns Attention to the Record Books

The Milford High football team has been getting over the sting of missing out on the postseason by taking a swing at shattering some program records. 
The 5-4 Scarlet Hawks bounced back from a loss to Stoughton that kept the team out of the playoffs and won their last two games, scoring a whopping 101 points in the process by beating Taunton 49-30 and following that up with a 52-35 triumph over Medfield.
"We had a great game against Taunton and another one against Medfield and those were not by mistake at all," head coach Joe Todd said. "We were as prepared to play those games as if they were both playoff games. It was great to see our offense break through."
Senior quarterback Zach Lanzetta threw for six touchdowns in each of the two victories and Todd feels the 12 has to be a high water mark for a two game stretch - though finding complete and accurate records is a challenge. Lanzetta has 24 touchdowns and more than 1,900 passing yards this season, possibly well within reach of records in each of those categories as well. Todd said the 52-point total may also be a program best.
"It's just a matter of digging through the archives to confirm it," he said. "But we tell these kids they are going for a record and they really get excited about it."
Milford High set a school record last season by rushing for 440 yards as a team in a win over Hopkinton. The running game has not been lost amidst the flurry of passing touchdowns, senior halfback Jack DeSantis rushed for nearly 100 yards against Medfield - and added close to 200 more yards receiving. Senior wide receiver Jack Cappelletti and junior tight end and linebacker Blake Hill have also been "playing great" lately, Todd said, and the head coach gave a big hat tip to a pair of junior standouts on he offensive line.
"Riley Burns is a great two-way lineman for us, he's a big, strong, athletic kid who does a great job on both lines," the head coach said. "Ryan Gray has played center and defensive line, he never comes off the field. He has a great motor and is out there for every offensive and defensive snap."
Milford has two games left - Friday night at home against Framingham and a road tilt at Randolph on Thanksgiving Day - and Todd said the goals are two-fold.
"We want to send our seniors out on the highest note possible by scoring points and breaking records," he said. "But we also want to continue to develop our younger guys. At the end of the season, we are going to pick up right where we left off and just keep building again. It's about growth for us, we want to keep growing this program."
