The Golden Warriors will play an entirely Merrimack Valley Conference schedule this season. ...

Zayn Aruri, who was nearly cut from the basketball team, delivered a breakout season in hoops and is now poised for a huge season in football. ... Three offensive and defensive linemen have already committed to college football programs — AJ Heidtke (Brown), Parker Rankin (UNH) and Ben Entner (Colby). Linebacker/tight end Tomas Louriero will play at St. Lawrence.
