7-0 Undefeated Season
New England Class "A" Champions

Tabor Academy's 1976 Varsity Football team was a group of young men and coaches which melded character, hard work and brotherhood on and off the field. They were a team of complimentary abilities who fit seamlessly together, propelling them in an exceptional way, to achieve an undefeated season. In their undefeated quest, the team had two shutout performances, one of which the opposition never gained a first down. In four of the last five games of the season, the Tabor defense held their opposition to a single touchdown, while maintaining an average victory margin of 20 points or more a game.

Head Coach Mike Silipo said of this group, "This team had an incredible football IQ. They were always totally focused and never took a play off. Our line was big, quick and agile and they always had each other's back! Simply an extraordinary group of winners!"
