Delbarton has a serious high school football program, with one graduate heading to Williams next year.

Football season ended in early December, but Delbarton football coach Brian Bowers has been a busy man ever since. The Green Wave roster was loaded with good football players who also excel in the classroom, which can only mean one thing: College recruiters have been making constant contact with Bowers.

Delbarton has always had strong inroads to Ivy and Patriot League schools — both of which emphasize academics as well as football. Those relationships have only been strengthened over the last few months.

Offensive lineman Michael McGuire (6-4, 225) will attend Williams College, where Bowers coached for a season before coming to Delbarton and where former Green Wave coach John Kowalik attended.

“I know that program well and Michael will be a great fit there,” Bowers said.

Kowalik ’83 is now the Headmaster at the Peck School. (You know that Kowalik is a smart Eph because he’s married to his classmate, Carolyn (Coombs) Kowalik.) Despite all my crazy ideas, the Eph Football Mafia is not as well-organized (at least publically) as it ought to be.
