CC looks to take down the Pilots
The Boys’ Bowl is the biggest football game
in the Prep sports regular season.
This year, the Shamrocks face DeLaSalle,
which is returning experienced and talented
“They bring back a lot of experienced play-
ers,” said senior captain Nick Landry, “but we
match up with them pretty well in key areas.”
With much more speed than last year, CC’s
quickness will, Landry added, “Take the Pilots
out of the air for good.”
So far this year, the Shamrocks have been
the smash-mouth team they typically are by
dominating the ground game.
Their leading rusher is Anthony Capatina
`10 with 160 yards and two touchdowns.
Junior Niko Palazeti has rushed for 126
yards and three touchdowns.
Quarterback Sam Landry ̀ 10 has completed
5 of his 11 passes for 93 yards and two touch-
Senior receiver Kam Leiter leads the team
with three receptions for 67 yards and one
touchdown. Joe Snyder also has a 21 yard
The Brick Wall D has been tenacious thus
far, allowing only 14 points in two games.
The defense has forced five fumbles and
has six interceptions. Brandon Williams has
two of the six. Leiter, Steve Harding, Josh
Kyles, and Justin D’Agostino each have one
interception. John Savakas has recovered two
fumbles. Williams, Harding, and Mike Kin-
ville each recovered one.
In the season opener, the Shamrocks beat
Detroit Southeastern 35-14. In Southeast-
ern’s next three games, they scored nearly 120
points. This says a lot about our defense.
Next, CC shut out St. Thomas Aquinas
51-0. The Shamrocks did not hesitate to break
this game open, scoring 44 by the 3rd quarter.
After three games, the Shamrocks’ record
stands at 2-1.
The only difference between this team and
the legendary teams from the early 2000’s (the
only ones to win three State titles in a row)
is confidence. This year’s team has the talent
to beat anybody
