Odds and ends: AD Howard Sobolov joins the coaching staff. He began his coaching career as an assistant at Londonderry in the mid-1980s, and went on to be the head football coach at Alvirne and Goffstown, starting both programs. ... Nick Lafond, who has not played football since his freshman season, is expected to play a key role on both sides of the ball and Alex Augusto, who did not play last season, should be an anchor on the offensive line.
