On paper, 2021 was a rough year for the Stamford football team. Playing their first season under coach Britt Hart, the Bulldogs stumbled through a 3-7 campaign.
But looking beyond the varsity record — or perhaps more accurately, just putting it in the proper context — there were plenty of positives to draw from the Bulldogs’ season.
While the final mark is what it is, the season itself was a glimpse into the future. And with a talented freshman class filling a surprising number of key roles on the varsity team, and the junior varsity squad posting a 9-1 record despite that, Hart feels it was the beginning of what could be a special run for his program.
One area the second-year Stamford coach is most excited about is his backfield, where quarterback Case Beeson and running back Kaston Vega saw extensive playing time as freshmen a year ago. Add in fellow sophomore Christian Duran, who will compete with Beeson for the QB job after a strong 7-on-7 season, and Hart believes he has the skill position nucleus for the next outstanding Bulldogs team.
