Eastern's Tony Floyd

Bristol Eastern coach Tony Floyd talks it over during timeout against Wethersfield on Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2023 from Wethersfield.

When Tony Floyd was hired by Bristol Eastern in 1979, neither him nor anyone else could have imagined the career he would go on to have. Within four years, Floyd raised his first state championship banner and now 43 seasons later he is still adding to his incredible career.

Last Saturday, the Bristol Eastern Lancers defeated Career Magnet 41-12. The win not only gave the Lancers a boost to the season, but it also placed Floyd in rare company. The win gave Floyd his 600th career win.
