OTP 18 December 2018 - Lawlor / Fairfield Year in Review: Politics, baseball, football, hockey

However, we had some extremely bright spots this year. The Fairfield American Little League team went to Williamsport in the Little League World Series. This group of poised young men represented us well. They finished even better than the other recent Fairfield American teams who have been going to Williamsport on a regular basis. They finished third in the nation. The coaches and players said they had grown into a close-knit family.

This fall, the Fairfield Giant Football 10u team literally picked up the ball where baseball left off. When it was all over, they stood atop the mountain as the national champions. When practice began Aug. 1, their coaches started from the ground floor, as many players had never played organized football. In addition to the football skills, their coach, Mark Cirilli, stressed teammate skills. “The whole season was dedicated to learning about how to be a great teammate. Our chant was ‘One heart, one mind, one team.’ ” That chant and the teamwork that it inspired took them through an undefeated season and the Pop Warner National Championship.
