The Bloomfield football program was struck with double-fisted tragedy in the past year. Former Warhawk Jamar Johnson, about to start his sophomore season at Central Connecticut, was killed in a car crash. The Warhawks dedicated their 2013 season to him. In November, Tarence Mitchell, the state leader with eight interceptions, was accused of fatally stabbing a 27-year-old friend. Coach Ty Outlaw held his team together, won a state playoff game against highly rated Capital Prep.
