CA football joins new NEPSAC league

February 28, 2020

Eleven New England football powers, including Cheshire Academy, will make up the Northeast Prep Football Conference,  a new Class A independent school league. The league will begin play in the fall. 


Spearheaded by Cheshire Academy’s Associate Head of School and head football coach David Dykeman, the league will feature some of the best teams in the region and will be a part of the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council. The league will consist of: Phillips Academy, Andover, Brunswick School, Cheshire Academy, Deerfield Academy, The Hun School, Phillips Exeter Academy, Salisbury School, Suffield Academy, Worcester Academy, Williston Northampton School and Wyoming Seminary. 


A two-year schedule has been set and league play will serve as a qualifier for the seven New England bowl championships.   


“Alumni should be excited that we’re playing the best of the best in New England football,” Dykeman said. “We’re really excited about playing Suffield Academy in Week 8 and we’re trying to build up continuous rivalries with a lot of schools.”
