Boothbay's play-off run:

... “I tried the whole game to knock down a pass, but that was the only one,” Wilson said. “I checked the down and distance and knew it was going to be a pass. I shot the gap, and beat two linemen. And then I put my hands up, and once I hit the ball, I knew I wanted to catch it, and score really bad.”

Boothbay quarterback Jay Hasch followed the touchdown with a two-yard run for a two point conversion making the score 15-0 Boothbay with 49.7 seconds remaining in the half.

As it has all season, the Boothbay defense was the major force in the game. Sacopee twice penetrated deep into Boothbay territory in the first quarter, but failed to score each time. Boothbay defensive coordinator Smith Climo believed his defense’s resilience in not allowing an early score pointed toward a good result for his team.

Campbell Conference names Crocker Class E football ‘Coach of the Year’
BRHS football posted 10-0 record, won Class E championship


...Crocker had full-contact practices and promoted his players being supremely physically fit during the season.

“A lot of teams with small rosters won’t ‘hit’ during practice,” Crocker said. “But we took a different approach. If you don’t hit then you’re not prepared to hit during a game. Also, our players this season were constantly in the weight room and running. They were in great shape and it showed. When other teams were sucking wind, we were still fresh.”

His team’s physical play and conditioning were most evident in the Seahawks’ defense. The hard-hitting Seahawk unit turned a championship game fourth deficit into a victory. In the Nov. 16 championship game versus Maranacook, Boothbay surrendered an early lead and trailed in the second half due to costly turnovers committed by the offense. But a couple of big hits on defense aided Boothbay’s fourth quarter rally.

“Turnovers definitely hurt us, but our defense, like it has been all season, came up big,” he said. “Each time, we turned the ball over in the championship, our defense came up with a big hit and got it back. One hundred percent. Our defense was the reason for our dominance.”

Crocker has a lot of coaching experience, but this was his first as a varsity head coach. He has been a volunteer high school and youth coach in basketball, football and baseball for several years. He has wanted to join the BRHS football coaching staff for several years, but couldn’t due to his job.
