Welcome back to another episode of The Meat Grinder, your weekly look at high school football in Connecticut.

Week 1 is in the books and, while there were games that went according to form, there were plenty that didn't -- St. Joseph's 14-0 victory over No. 2 Darien jumps quickly to mind. So does West Haven beating up on Notre Dame-West Haven. Shelton's 55-14 wipeout of Ridgefield, too.

Pete and Sean are back with Episode II of Grinder, in which they attempt to sift through the Week 1 debris and try and make sense of the madness while pinning down some of the Week 1 stars who have somehow managed to elude them this preseason (we're looking at you Trumbull's David Johnston).

The gang also breaks down the latest Top 10 poll and begin to look ahead to next week's games.
