After a very successful season for the Cavo football players, the team looks to improve even more by hiring new coach, Kwame Featherson. This will not be Featherson’s first time coaching football. He has been a football coach at both Randolph High School and his alma mater of Manchester Regional High School.

“I’m excited to be coaching, I love kids. I’m going to try and help in every aspect as far as football,” Featherson said.

The Cavos went 5-5 last season with head coach Nick Calandrino earning coach of the year honors. A record of 5-5 is a major improvement for the Cavos who have been struggling on the field for the past few years.

One challenge for the Cavos  is size and number. They run small on both the offensive and defensive line. Featherson will exclusively coach the defensive line. He hopes to turn that line into one of the strongest parts of the team.

“I definitely know I bring energy and a lot of football knowledge,” Featherson said.

The players are excited about the new season and a new coach.

“Of course, I’m excited for football,  but yeah, hopefully this year we can make the state playoffs, and I think we definitely will be able to with the new lineman coach who seems very intelligent when it comes to football,” sophomore Nick Castro said.

Featherson has already assisted by teaching the other coaches “how to tag each play and break down each play on film.”

“If I’m good, we’re all good, and if our head coach is great, we’re all good,” Featherson said. “So, I’m just trying to make us as good as we can be.”
