PROVIDENCE -- St. Raphael Academy head coach Mike Sassi had stated on the evening before his squadâ€™s rather new holiday rivalry game against Moses Brown that â€“ despite the upcoming inclement weather forecast â€“ the two foes would play.
Evidently, the Providence private school didnâ€™t want to go to combat on Thanksgiving Day; perhaps a primary reason being it would have slightly less rest to prepare for a Division III semifinal tilt this coming Tuesday.
LINCOLN â€“ The hope was to blend in as the new kid in a new high school.
But that wasnâ€™t a luxury afforded to Thaddeus Moss, and it didnâ€™t take this precocious young football player long to realize that he wasnâ€™t in Kentucky or West Virginia any more.
Moss arrived at Lincoln High School in March, and the schoolâ€™s lights seemingly became more luminous the moment he was spotted in the hallways. He was commanding nonstop attention, though in an entirely different fashion as what he was accustomed to on the gridiron.
