Pictures: Newtown High Football Team Plays A 'Dedicated Season'
On a beautiful mid-November day The Hartford Courant spent an afternoon with the Newtown High football team as they practiced and prepared to continue on a perfect season. The Nighthawks are 11-0 and in the state football playoffs for the third straight season. Working for a championship? You bet. But we found out they're playing for a lot more this season.

A Dedicated Season
2013.11.14 - Newtown, CT - The classroom white board where Newtown High School football coach teaches Power Tech bears a note to Barak Obama and the president's signature (bottom right). Obama was in the room prior to his address from Newtown High School's auditorium after last year's attack at Sandy Hook. The note (far right) reads: "Dear President Obama, The Newtown community is so thankful that you are coming to help us heal. In times of adversity it is reassuring to know that we have a strong leader to help us recover." - Steve George, Teacher/Football Coach - Bobby Pattison, Teacher.
