Jason Arnold's South Adams football squad has risen from the ashes of an 0-5 start to reclaim their season and can actually go over the .500 mark this week as the 5-5 Starfires face John Diener's 5-5 Northfield Norsemen in the Secitonal 35 semi-finals at Starfire Field.
Bellmont, which dominated the NHC for the fifth straight year, did not exactly dominate the All-NHC squad, putting three players on the first team and two on the second team. The squad was evidently announced to the Journal-Gazette yesterday. The Daily Democrat received a fax this morning from New Haven High School.
Coaches were allowed to nominate five players.
