Kents Hill Football has a long, proud tradition that dates back to 1893. The Kents Hill football program competes in the Evergreen League which is currently made up of fourteen quality prep school teams throughout New England. Kents Hill has enjoyed success throughout its storied history. 

Kents Hill players have gone on to play at top collegiate football programs at the Division I, IAA and III levels, such as Rutgers University, University of Maine, Boston College, Colby College, Bowdoin College, and Ohio Wesleyan. Many of our players have gained great exposure in the college recruiting process at Kents Hill, and the coaching staff and college counseling office have a strong network of college placement nationally.

Kents Hill is a special place to play football. Our rivalry with Hebron Academy dates back over 120 years and is one of the oldest in North America. Each year the two teams play for the coveted Headmaster’s Chair, which proudly resides at Kents Hill this season.

Tough Game At Pingree

The Varsity Football team lost a tough game to Pingree School on Saturday in South Hamilton, Massachusetts.
After receiving the opening kickoff the Huskies opening drive stalled.  Pingree went on a signature long and effective drive ending with a 10 yard touchdown scramble by the Highlander quarterback.  The Kents Hill offense immediately responded behind the right arm of sophomore quarterback Noah Henson.  Henson completed two big passes to get the Huskies moving.  The first to junior H-Back, Trevor Guity for 22 yards started the Husky drive.  After a tough 7 yard run by post-grad RB Adam Gigliotti, Henson found senior WR Raph Major-Dagenais on a bootleg for another big gain.  Facing 4th and 7 on the Pingree 25, Henson threw a high arcing pass down the sideline that Major-Dagenais came down with over Pingree cornerback, shrinking the Pingree lead to 7-6. 
Pingree’s offense proved to be too effective as they continued to march down the field, mostly through the air against the Husky defense.  Kents Hill prevented the big play throughout the game, but could not come up with big third down stops except for two field goal attempts in the second quarter.  Pingree used a big second quarter with a key interception to extend their lead to 27-6 at the half.  A failed fake punt and a failed onside kick by Kents Hill cemented the victory for Pingree as the Highlanders ended the game with a 47-12 victory.  Major-Dagenais would finish the scoring with a 20 yard pass to Guity early in the fourth quarter.
Kents Hill was led by Gigliotti’s 65 rushing yards and 7 tackles on defense.  Major-Dagenais had 3 receptions for 42 yards, and also saw some time at quarterback, completing 2 passes, including a touchdown, for 32 yards.   Guity had finished with 2 catches for 44 yards and a touchdown, as well as 4 tackles on defense.  Post-graduate defensive lineman Walter Washington had 5 tackles, including 2 for a loss and a sack on the day.
The Huskies have a bye weekend this week, but will get back on the field on October 25 at Hyde School in Woodstock, CT.

Huskies Fall to the Ravens Despite a Strong Effort

The Varsity Football team lost a hard-fought game at Portsmouth Abbey last Saturday, 42-21. 

Kents Hill started the game very well stopping the Ravens 3 and out on their first possession, and then driving the field on a long drive, punctuated by a 1-yd QB sneak from sophomore, Noah Henson.  Portsmouth Abbey immediately responded with a lengthy drive of their own, ending in a 22 yard touchdown run.  After each team traded possessions, the Huskies took over on their own 27 yard line with 1 minute remaining in the half.  A quick drive with big plays by senior wide receiver Raph Major-Dagenais and junior wide receiver Luke Arsenault brought Kents Hill to the 2 yard line with 3 seconds remaining. The Huskies dialed up a trick play in which, Major-Dagenais threw to quarterback Henson in the end zone for the one-handed touchdown grab.  A second successful extra point by junior kicker Sebastian Hogye put the Huskies on top 14-7 at the half. A promising opening second half drive ended with a punt, but a bad snap sailed over the kicker's head and Portsmouth Abbey took over on Kents Hill's 5 yard line.  A quick touchdown score then tied the game at 14.  Facing 4th and inches on their own 30 yard line, Kents Hill was stopped cold by the Abbey defensive line and another quick score put the Ravens on top 21-14.  On the next series, the Huskies had a punt attempt blocked and recovered by Portsmouth Abbey.  The Ravens converted their third straight possession, with quality field position into another 7 points.  On the first play of the fourth quarter, Portsmouth Abbey broke another long run and extended their lead to 35-14.  The Huskies weren’t finished though. Henson connected with Major-Dagenais for a 38 yard touchdown pass deflected by Arsenault.  Another successful extra point by Hogye put Kents Hill back within striking distance, but the onside kick attempt fell into Raven hands and Portsmouth Abbey clinched the game with a lengthy touchdown drive, making the final score Portsmouth Abbey-42, Kents Hill-21.

The Huskies travel to Pingree School in South Hamilton, Massachusetts on Saturday, October 6.  Game time is scheduled for 4:30 PM.



Kents Hill Hosts Dexter School

The Varsity Football team lost a hard-fought game in the heat versus Dexter School on Saturday.  Kents Hill entered the fourth quarter with an 8-6 lead, but fell victim to a relentless rushing attack from visiting Dexter. 

The game started on a high note as sophomore QB Noah Henson connected with senior WR Raph Major-Dagenais for a 23-yard touchdown pass on the opening drive.  A missed PAT attempt kept the Kents Hill lead at 6-0.  Dexter immediately responded with a drive of their own and tied the game at 6.  Defenses from both sides took over for the next two and half quarters, as each team battled for field position and neither side could come up with a big offensive play.  The Huskies broke the tie midway through the second quarter when PG defensive lineman Sebastian Stigsby tackled the Dexter ball-carrier in the end zone for a safety.

The score would remain 8-6 despite both teams having possession deep in their opponent’s territory in the third quarter.  A costly Kents Hill fumble on the second play of the fourth quarter would open the door for Dexter, who would score three plays later, making the score 12-8.  After a three and out, Dexter would break free for an 80 yard touchdown run, making it a two score game.  The Huskies would be forced to go for it on fourth down a few times, unsuccessfully, and Dexter would add two late scores on the ground.  It was too little, too late, when Henson connected with Major-Dagenais once more for a score, this time from 13 yards, making the final score, Dexter-30, Kents Hill-14.

Major-Dagenais would lead the Huskies with 128 receiving yards on 7 receptions and two touchdowns.  Post-grad lineman Walter Washington and Stigsby led the Husky defense which shut down the tough Dexter running game for three quarters.  Washington finished with 6 tackles, including two for a loss and a fumble recovery.  Stigsby had 7.5 tackles, including 3.5 for a loss.

The Huskies travel to Portsmouth Abbey in Rhode Island next Saturday, 10/4.  Game time is 2 PM.


Hyde Game

Hyde-ME – 25, Kents Hill – 16

The Huskies lost a back and forth game on Saturday afternoon.  Hyde-ME used a strong third quarter to turn a 10-7 Kents Hill halftime lead into a 22-10 score by the start of the fourth quarter. 

Hyde got on the board first on their opening drive, finishing with a quarterback sneak.  The two teams traded possessions and the Huskies had a touchdown called back, but gained the momentum midway through the second on a blocked punt by senior Raph Major-Dagenais.  The blocked punt went out of the back of the end zone for a safety.  Using the great field position after the Hyde free kick, the Huskies drove down to the 25 yard line, where Major-Dagenais threw a touchdown pass to junior Luke Arsenault on a trick play, giving the Huskies the halftime lead.  Major-Dagenais converted a two-point conversion on the ground making the score 10-7.

Hyde drove down the field to open the third quarter, scoring on another quarterback sneak.  Two plays later, the visiting Phoenix intercepted a deep pass, setting up another touchdown, this time a 15 yard run.  In what turned out to be a key play, Hyde faked the extra point attempt and got two-points through the air.  Early in the fourth quarter, Hyde hit a 43-yard field to open the lead to 25-10.  After another failed drive by Kents Hill, hope was restored, as senior Chandler Dugal recovered a Hyde fumble.  Two big pass plays from sophomore quarterback Noah Henson to Major-Dagenais and Arsenault got the Huskies inside the Hyde 5 yard line.  Two plays later Henson threw a pass that Arsenault caught in the front corner of the end zone for another Kents Hill touchdown.  Major-Dagenais was stopped inches short on the two-point try and an onside kick attempt was recovered by the visitors dooming the Huskies to a defeat.

Major-Dagenais had a great game for Kents Hill, hauling in 6 receptions for 166 yards, rushing for 20 yards on 4 carries, and throwing 1 pass, a 25 yard touchdown, to go along with his blocked punt.  Arsenault finished with 5 receptions for 60 yards and two touchdowns.  Post-graduate Sebastian Stigsby led the defense from his defensive tackle position with 10.5 tackles and 2 tackles for loss.

The Huskies will host Dexter School on Huard Field next Saturday, September 27, at 2 PM.
