2018 New England Prep School Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame Honorees
By BOB YORK
It’s like heaven on earth: Arrival is indicative of a job well done – even if it meant having to rely on a Hail Mary from time to time.
We’re talking about the New England Prep School Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame, which has been honoring this band of brothers since 1999. Unlike most havens of history, this hall has no busts nor pictures of its inductees lining its walls, because it doesn’t exist in a structural sense. There are no bricks … there is no mortar. Instead, this hall lives in the abstract but pays tribute to its inductees by reaching out to the athletic arenas throughout New England where these mentors became legends of the fall.

Belmont Hill Football Team Downs Wilbraham & Monson to Capture 2016 New England Championship
In the first quarter of the first game of the season, Belmont Hill found itself trailing New Hampton 18-0. After the previous season's disappointing finish, it was an alarming start to the new season. But the team maintained its composure and shut down New Hampton the rest of the way to earn a decisive 43-18 victory.
That game started the momentum for a 6-2 regular season, with the team finishing as co-champions of the ISL. Matched against Wilbraham & Monson Academy, who finished the regular season at 7-1, the team would play arguably its best game of the year. Led by quarterback Zach Geddes, who ran for 128 yards and two touchdowns, and passed for 120 yards, the team never trailed in the game, and answered every rally their opponents could muster. Two first-quarter touchdowns on runs by Isaiah Collins and Jaylen Bailey got the boys off to a 14-0 start, and an eventual 14-3 halftime lead.
