The Crimson Tide took care of Lynn Classical Friday, 42-12, wrapping up the abbreviated 2020- 2021 season undefeated.

In the end, a three-game season just meant three more wins for Everett High School football.

With all three victories this season coming against Greater Boston League opponents, Everett could be crowned league champions, but head coach Robert DiLoreto doesn’t believe it’s necessary.

“I honestly don’t think there needs to be a league champion in a season like this,” said DiLoreto, who expressed his joy of winning and said being a part of Everett football is a more meaningful reward for both student-athletes and coaches alike than getting a banner.

First-year head coach Robert DiLoreto said they exemplify the strength of Crimson Tide football.

“All 12 of our seniors have been outstanding leaders,” said DiLoreto. “They have committed themselves to working hard and buying into the team mentality. I am so proud. It has been a pleasure to coach each of them,” he said.

Like an audible straight out of the unprecedented playbook, the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) and Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) released joint guidance for modified high school sports seasons in the 2020-2021 school year.

The guidelines, constructed to keep student athletes safer during the Covid-19 era, modified which sports could conduct full-scheduled seasons this fall, dividing each into lower, moderate and higher risk categories. The higher risk sports, including football, cheer and basketball will not have their seasons take place during the fall and instead will have “floating” schedules, which basically means all games will be postponed for a later date while players are still allowed to practice in the interim, provided paperwork stating health guidelines are being followed are submitted.

The MIAA and DESE released this statement of the changes:
