Everett Stadium will be the place to be on Sept. 9 as the Everett High football team hosts Xaverian in a dream matchup at Everett Veterans Memorial Stadium.
But the Crimson Tide’s 2022 season opener is still three weeks away as head coach Rob DiLoreto and his staff will welcome their team to preseason practices that get underway Friday.
“We’re expecting 85-90 players,” said DiLoreto. “We have a healthy number of freshmen. and that number will increase when students return to school. We already have more than 20 committed freshmen who were lifting weights and getting in shape this summer, and we’re very excited about that.”
Pre-Season Schedule Announced
Everett will have an intra-squad scrimmage on Saturday, Aug. 27 at 4 p.m. at Everett Stadium.
The following Tuesday, Aug. 30, Everett will travel to Mansfield for a scrimmage at 4 p.m. The Tide will wrap up their pre-season schedule with a simulated game-scrimmage on the road against former GBL opponent Peabody on Friday, Sept 2.
“Mansfield is always a well-coached, disciplined team and that will be a challenge for us,” said DiLoreto. “Peabody is a very good program, and they will be a title contender in their conference [Northeastern] this season.”
In addition to Xaverian on the regular season schedule, Everett will play at BC High on Sept. 30. The GBL opponents are Somerville, Lynn English, Revere, Medford, Malden, and Lynn Classical.
The Tide do not have a Thanksgiving game on their schedule at this point, though DiLoreto continues to seek an opponent. Last year’s Thanksgiving foe, St. John’s of Shrewsbury, decided to move on and play Malden Catholic on the holiday.
