Once Again, Windsor High Is Dominant In Football….

by CTalentTv on October 12, 2012





Windsor, which finished 11-1 and lost in a Class L semifinal last year, is off to another fast start in football. The Warriors (3-0) are No. 5 in The Courant state ratings and have outscored Wethersfield, Bristol Central and Bristol Eastern by an average of more than 40 points.

“Our defense is right there, and we have some depth, too,” Windsor coach Rob Fleeting said. “We’re running better, and our quarterback is like having another coach.”

The defensive front is anchored by ends Cole and Lance Ormsby. At tackle there are Charles Baldwin, Austin Harris and Keith Benjamim. Linebacker Chris Traore and Terrell Huff in the secondary also are active and productive, trademarks of the entire unit.

Junior Jalen Berry leads the running backs with 216 yards. Quarterback Quinn Fleeting has 265 yards on the ground and four TDs. Freshman Jordan Knight averages 8.25 yards a carry. Devonte Dillion, who had 40 yards against Bristol Eastern, is returning to form from an injury.

Quinn Fleeting, son of the head coach, has completed 46-of-63 passes for 750 yards and five TDs.

“It’s a little awkward talking about my son,” Rob Fleeting said. “His maturity and ability to read coverages and to learn where the gaps are have improved. During a timeout in the Bristol Eastern game, we called a pass play to Isaiah Huff. He’s a freshman, and Quinn told him to run his route and the ball would be there. It was, for a touchdown.”

Windsor’s offensive balance is evidenced by its average of 267.3 rushing yards and 240.3 passing yards per game.

The Warriors had a rare day off on Monday because they don’t play a game this week. Their regular season is only nine games.

Fleeting said the search for a 10th game started in February. But finding open dates on opponents’ schedules that would fit with Windsor’s schedule and even searching out of state couldn’t secure another game.

That Windsor is a formidable opponent likely was a contributing factor to not getting a 10th game.
