Fall 2015 Season Highlights

The varsity season started with great promise as our defense did not give-up a point in our first three games. Unfortunately, the team was challenged by injuries to several key players and we lost several close games mid-season. The team showed great perseverance and concluded the year on Thanksgiving Day with an impressive shutout of West Roxbury. 

The JV team played hard all season and our young players improved with each game. During the season, our players learned a lot about football, competition, teamwork, teammates, ourselves and life. Our players represented O'Bryant in a positive manner and we look forward to building on the lessons we learned last year and expect a great season this fall.
