Trumbull High head football coach Bob Maffei was the first one exiting the locker room at Westhill High in Stamford on Saturday. Maffei stalked to the sideline, yanked open the equipment trunk, and put on his head gear. Game on.
What lit a fire under the Trumbull mentor? His Eagles had lost a 37-30 overtime decision to the Vikings in 2012, and with a three-game winning streak under their belt the locals didn’t want to stumble in their FCIAC West opener at J. Walter Kennedy Stadium.
