Gameday conversation with Lou Marinelli & Michael Collins

Aired on Oct. 24 before the “Marinelli Bowl,” this installment of the HAN-FCIAC Gameday Conversation featured an interview with New Canaan head coach Lou Marinelli and Rams quarterback Michael Collins. Each of them talked about the impact former offensive coordinator John Marinelli had on the Rams program.

John, who is Lou’s son, took the head coaching position at Greenwich High before the start of the 2015 season.

Many FCIAC football fans circled Saturday, Oct. 24, on their calendars when the 2015 season schedule was released. It wasn’t because of the long history between New Canaan and Greenwich; it was because new Greenwich head coach John Marinelli would be standing across the field from his father Lou Marinelli and a New Canaan Rams team he has spent most of is life standing with on Fridays and Saturdays each fall.

In case you missed the game, which was broadcast at live.HAN.Network — or want to watch it again — here’s a link to the complete broadcast of the game.

Collins discusses how John helped him get to the level he is playing at currently and how it is somewhat bittersweet to be taking on his former mentor. Lou talks about getting through all the hype of the game that has been building for months – and how he just wants to get the game over with.
