Daniel Hand High School

Tiger Football

After just finishing our 43rd year of play, the Tigers boast an impressive record of 350—107—7 (75%). With 24 Division titles, 19 trips to the post season, and 11 state titles, the Tigers have enjoyed success in every decade since the program’s inception. The proud history of Hand football began in 1970 when Larry Ciotti was hired to start a high school football program in Madison, CT. Coach Ciotti demanded discipline, toughness, and total commitment from his players. His approach yielded immediate success with an undefeated season in 1973 and back to back state titles in 1976-77. In 1989, Larry Ciotti passed the program on to Steve Filippone. Coach Filippone has worked tirelessly to carry on the proud legacy of Hand Football and has built upon the rich tradition of success earning his 200th win in 2012 along with his 7th State title. GO TIGERS!!
