The varsity football team dominated on the field with an undefeated ISL season (6-0) clinching the title after a 48-25 win against Belmont Hill, a team that also came into the game undefeated. The home game in front of a Parents’ Weekend crowd showed the deep depth of Milton, led by team captains Kalel Mullings ‘20 and Jake Willcox ‘20.
That victory led to an invite to the post-season Mike Silipo NEPSAC Bowl to face off against Deerfield Academy. Despite the home field advantage, it was a tough 26-23 loss for the Mustangs.
Jake and Kalel provided great leadership all season, Coach Kevin MacDonald said. Kalel was selected to play in the All American Bowl game in January. The players also used their grief over the unexpected passing of offensive line coach Paul Healey as inspiration for winning this season. Coach Healey had coached with Coach Mac for 28 years.
