The Sharon High School football team was not, to put it kindly, known as a powerhouse. In fact, it had been years since the team posted a winning record. Many years, the squad didn’t even muster one Hockomock League win.

By the end of 2012, the giggle had given way to raucous applause as the Sharon Eagles football team won the Eastern Massachusetts Division III Super Bowl championship.
