NEW BERLIN – Milford Academy opens its football season Saturday evening at 6 p.m. at Norwich High School when it entertains Atlanta Sports Prep. Again, the Falcons will flash some of the most talented football players in the nation. Many of the players use the Academy as a means to develop skills and gain notice from college scouts, while others are already signed as Division I players, and just need to raise their college entrance exam scores.
Syracuse University has taken advantage of Milford Academy’s close locale since the school relocated to New Berlin eight seasons ago. Top prospects Aston Broyld and Tyree Smallwood, both from New York State high schools, will likely join the Orange next season.
