BRONXVILLE, N.Y. With the holidays influencing changes to the weekend high school football schedule, Bronxville will travel to Rockland County for an unusual Sunday evening game with Albertus Magnus at 6 p.m.
We have been handling the altered schedule very well, Broncos lineman Sean Callahan said. Since we were not allowed to meet on Monday because by rule we are not allowed to meet seven days in a row, the captains, Christian and Jackson Conway and myself, decided to get the guys out and do some running on the track to keep our conditioning up.
With that kind of dedication and an already perfect 4-0 record, the Broncos are headed into the second half of the season with their eyes on the postseason playoffs. Bronxville, the defending Class C state champion, is riding a 22-game winning streak in Section 1 play and an overall streak of 16 straight, including state playoff games.
The Broncos come off an easy win at Rye Neck in which Christian Conway continued his dominance rushing for 243 yards and four touchdowns. Quarterback Max Boyd gains more and more experience passing the ball each week. The Broncos defense relies on the fact that the offense controls the clock and the special teams play has been solid.
We are going four days in pads from Tuesday through Friday. Normally we only have three days in pads for a Saturday game from Tuesday to Thursday. So, I think we are handling things very well and so far we've had a very good week of practice.
Magnus (2-2) has some size up front and wins over Rye Neck and Lincoln Hall, but has shutout losses to Haldane and Class D state champion Tuckahoe, a team the Broncos defeated two weeks ago. Fullback Jeremy Sosa leads the running game with 302 yards and two touchdowns, but Magnus will need a passing game to crack the Broncos defense.
