Opener: Saturday, hosts Lynnfield, 1:30 p.m.

Odds and ends: Joe Esposito took over after senior Corey Wade broke his collarbone and went on to shatter the school's single-season passing record. ... Brandon Wade is a returning Eagle-Tribune All-Star defensive back/running back. Wade was one of four juniors to make high honors at Georgetown last spring. ... The Georgetown Football Boosters went to work over the offseason and raised over $15,000 for new equipment. The Boosters also helped start a new flag football league in town. ... As it stands, the two Esposito brothers, Joe and sophomore Chris, will hold down four starting spots ... Not to be outdone, the Harrigans, Nadjee and Tyran, will hold down three. ... Freshman Jamie Spears, who starred as an eighth grader for the varsity basketball team, could see time at safety.

Coach Matt Bouchard (2nd year, 5-5): "So far, things look good. We have plenty of experience but not a lot of depth. Offensively we've looked pretty good with that first group. Other than the receivers, everyone else is back. We've moved Mike Ruh to the outside receiver and Matt Kumph and Anthony Conte have fit right in there. My goal with us as thin as we are is to keep guys injury-free. We have a lot of potential. Once you get through that first team, you're basically talking freshmen and sophomores."
