PLAYER OF THE YEAR
St. Peter's Prep, Sr., quarterback, 6-2, 215, committed to Notre Dame
He affixed a stamp of superiority on the season with his well-rounded outing in the Non-Public, Group 4 final, but Wimbush guaranteed his place in New Jersey history one game earlier.
More accurately, it was the second half of that game, when the Notre Dame-bound senior overcame a three-interception first half against Bergen Catholic in the semifinals, to guide St. Peter's to the championship game with a performance for the ages--with help from another stellar athlete, Alabama-bound Minkah Fitzpatrick.
With remarkable poise under pressure, athletic grace and awesome arm strength, Wimbush connected with Fitzpatrick on three long TD passes to rally St. Peter's from a four-point deficit to a 31-14 victory. He passed for 427 yards and four touchdowns against BC, then iced his fabulous career by passing for 163 yards and two TDs and rushing for 161 yards and a score in a 34-18 win over defending champion Paramus Catholic in the final.
The championship certainly confirmed Wimbush's place as one of New Jersey's premier high school quarterbacks of the last 40 years, along with the likes of Joe Flacco of Audubon, P.J. Walker of Elizabeth, Chris Simms of Ramapo and Will Hill of St. Peter's Prep. Wimbush this season passed for 3,187 yards and 37 TDs.
COACH OF THE YEAR
Sometimes the effort trumps the reward. For the last three years, Gurrieri piloted unbeaten Manalapan squad’s into sectional finals only to absorb defeats each time. While you might think the toll of mounting heartbreak on the threshold of glory would be demoralizing, Gurrieri never let that permeate his program. Instead, he countered with his usual uplifting spirit, making sure players understood what they spilled just to get to that stage was not in vain, with the added reinforcement Manalapan’s time would come. It arrived on Dec. 6 as a group bonded by chemistry cultivated as much as talent groomed pinned previously-unbeaten South Brunswick with a 21-7 loss in the Central Jersey, Group 5 final. It didn’t take long for the Braves to surround their revered coach in the aftermath and serenade Gurrieri with chants of “Ed-die, Ed-die, Ed-die” before hoisting him upon their shoulders. While the journey to Manalapan’s first championship may have been trying, the ride to celebrate it, upon the backs of players he inspired, was worth the wait.
FIRST TEAM: All-New Jersey Offense
St. Peter's Prep, Sr., 6-2, 215, committed to Notre Dame
*Player of the Year*
Long Branch, Sr., 5-9, 170
The elusive senior set a Shore Conference single-season record with 2,589 yards to go with 27 TDs for the Green Wave (8-3). Willis, who became the first player in the rich history of Long Branch football to surpass the 2,000-yard plateau, accumulated six outings of 200 or more yards and twice exceeded 300, including a school-record 370 and four TDs in a 40-28 victory over Matawan. His elusive feet, sharp cuts and acceleration in the clear made him nearly impossible to catch in the open field.
Demarest, Sr., 5-8, 165
Whenever Wasserman touched the football, it was all eyes on the super slick back. Nobody wanted to risk missing one of his cuts, spins, or jukes. The senior led Demarest to an eight-win season with 1,886 yards rushing and 22 touchdowns. That doesn't tell the story though. Wasserman added eight other touchdowns including four returns and averaged 9.3 yards per carry, 33 yards per catch, and intercepted four passes on defense.
Westwood, Sr., 6-2, 190, committed to Boston College
The BC-bound senior won his second consecutive North 1, Group 2 title and he did it in grand fashion once again. He’s the all-time leading receiver in every category in New Jersey history and capped it all off with 90 catches, 1,324 yards, and 24 total touchdowns. How about career totals? 247 catches, 4,212 yards, and 52 receiving touchdowns.
St. Peter's Prep, Sr., 5-8, 165, committed to Fordham
This versatile athlete would have been the offensive centerpiece on a lot of other teams that didn't have guys named Brandon Wimbush and Minkah Fitzpatrick in the lineup. Caddle got a chance to shine under the brightest of spotlights with two touchdowns, a run and reception, Dec. 5 in the Marauders' 34-18 state championship win over Paramus Catholic. Caddle had 43 receptions and scored 16 TDs this season while also providing stability in the secondary.
St. Joseph Regional, Sr., 6-1, 190
If you’re looking for a downfield threat, Ezemma was your man this year. Ezemma caught 38 passes for 838 yards and 15 touchdowns. That’s 22 yards per catch. When Ezemma found the end zone, that average jumped to 34 yards per catch for the Green Knights. Ezemma had over 100 yards receiving three times and caught touchdowns in eight different games.
St. Joseph Regional, 6-2, 278, committed to North Carolina
Hatton paved the way for an SJR offense that won a pair of state titles during his sophomore and junior seasons, and over 3,700 yards of offense and 30 points per game in a season that included wins over Don Bosco Prep and Paramus Catholic. He was named to the Under Armor All-American game and is widely considered one of the top centers in the country.
Red Bank Catholic, Sr., 6-2 , 275, committed to Fordham
The two-way lineman excelled on both sides of scrimmage but it’s his work at right guard that was critical to a Casey running game that piled up 2,804 yards and 48 TDs on RBC’s path to the Non-Public Group 3 crown, its first state title since 1976. A powerful drive blocker, when the 6-2, 275-pound Kroeger engaged, counterparts found his grip overpowering and unrelenting. That strength transcended to the defensive line as well where he collected 50 tackles, four sacks and two tackles for loss.
St. Peter's Prep, Sr., 6-2, 280, committed to Navy
Quarterback Brandon Wimbush did not discuss his dazzling offensive play without citing the offensive line that made it possible. Tolentino was the diligent leader of that group, which helped St. Peter's rack up more than 4,400 yards and average over 40 ppg. The hard-hitting tackle mixed power with textbook precision, and also showed refreshing durability in this age of specialization as a two-way starter up front. He was in on more than 50 tackles and had 3.5 sacks.
Union City, Sr., 6-3, 315, committed to Penn State
The four-year veteran made his name in high school as a bruising left tackle, but he's more likely to eventually carve out his niche at Penn State from the guard position. The 6-3, 315-pound Gonzalez already has exhibited the required nimbleness of that position on traps and sweeps and also through his impressive play on the defensive line. He produced nine sacks to help Union City to a second straight 8-3 season.
Jackson Memorial, Sr., 6-4, 260
The hulking guard overpowered whomever was the unfortunate subject in front of him and cleared paths that enabled sophomore Mike Gawlik and junior Vinny Lee to each rush for over 1,000 yards as the Jaguars completed an 11-1 season with a 20-18 victory over Middletown South in the Central Jersey, Group 4 final. Not only was he a big reason why Jackson accumulated 3,035 yards on the ground, an average of 252 per game, his protection bought time for QB Joe DeMaio to pass for 1,079 yards.
Montclair, Sr., 6-2, 190, committed to Boston College
Save for one bump at the start of this season (a 29-14 loss to Pascack Valley), Robinson's two-year run as Montclair's quarterback was spotless. And we do mean run. Robinson rushed for 1,526 yards and 22 touchdowns last year for the 12-0 Mounties, and followed that up this fall with 1,830 rushing yards and 25 TDs for an 11-1 team. Wasn't just all legwork, though, as Robinson compiled 3,163 passing yards and 37 TDs over two seasons.
Delbarton, So., 6-1, 180
Papantonis' impact as a valuable all-way asset was never presented more profoundly than in the Green Wave's 38-26 win over St. John Vianney Nov. 22 in the Non-Public, Group 3 semifinals. He rushed for 181 yards and two touchdowns, caught a TD pass and scored a fourth time with a 90-yard kick return. Papantonis was dependable on both sides of the ball and special teams all season, and yet with so much more to learn as only a sophomore.
Middletown South, Jr., 5-9, 170
Having someone as reliable as Mosquera was a luxury for the Eagles, who finished 9-3 and runner-up to Jackson in Central Jersey, Group 4. His mighty right foot was nearly perfect, converting all 42 extra points attempted while nailing 14 of 15 field-goal tries, including a season-long 40 on Thanksgiving during a 20-13 decision over Middletown North. Besides his effectiveness on kicks, Mosquera was also an accurate punter, routinely pinning opponents with poor field position and developed nicely in his first season at QB.
Linden, Sr., 6-0, 195
He returned just one kick for a touchdown, but it was one of the biggest plays in Linden football history. In the Dec. 7 North Jersey, Section 2, Group 5 final against Elizabeth, Dolbrice scooped up a bouncer at his 25 and carved his way to the end zone to snap a tie game with 2:36 to play and lead the Tigers to a 27-20 win for their second title. The QB passed for 1,091 yards and 10 TDs and ran for 887 yards and four scores.
FIRST TEAM: All-New Jersey Defense
Paramus Catholic, Jr., 6-4, 290
At 6-foot-4 and 290 pounds, Rashan Gary is obviously tough to handle. His transfer to Paramus Catholic this year came with a ton of fanfare, but the superstar junior lived up to the hype and he did it quickly with a dominant performance against Bergen Catholic. On a ferocious defense, which reached the Non-Public, Group 4 state title game, Gary finished with 55 tackles, 14 sacks, 10 tackles for loss, a blocked punt, and a defensive touchdown.
Montclair, Sr., 6-4, 210
Allen's disruptive activity from one of the edges helped Montclair's defense improve exponentially as the season went on. The Mounties allowed 119 points through the first five games, but yielded just 62 over the final seven to snap up a third straight title in North Jersey, Section 1, Group 5. The 6-4, 210-pound Allen recorded 75 tackles, 23 sacks and 18 hurries. He had six sacks in three state playoff games.
Bergen Catholic, Jr., 6-3, 240
The Crusaders’ identity changed in the middle of the season from a flashy offense to a hard-nosed defensive team led by its tough line play. Sal Mauro’s emergence was a big reason why. He finished fourth on the team in tackles with 54, while racking up 16 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks.
Manalapan, Sr., 6-4, 245
A continuously disruptive force at defensive end, Mullen embodied the energy of the Braves’ defense through his active rate. Explosive off the snap, technical at the point of engagement and persistent in his pursuits, he was a frequent visitor to opposing backfields, registering 18 tackles for losses, 18 hurries and 11 sacks to go with his 136 tackles for the Central Jersey, Group 5 champion. In the 21-7 victory over South Brunswick in the final, Mullen was at his best, recording 14 tackles and a pair of sacks.
Wayne Hills, Sr., 6-3, 235
A throwback-type fullback/linebacker, Hogan punished ball carriers and defenders alike with his power and fearlessness. He scored 13 touchdowns on the ground, but really made a living on defense with a team-leading 69 tackles. Led by Hogan, the Patriots upset Ramapo and gave the state champions, Pascack Valley, a massive scare.
Red Bank Catholic, Sr., Linebacker, 6-4, 235, committed to Miami
Opponents chose to run a great deal away from Gordinier’s side to avoid his leveling hits. By doing so, it gave him opportunities to reveal his pursuing speed. His keen reads, discipline and impact on contact were instrumental within a unit that allowed 9.7 points per game and boasted three shutouts. He still recorded 117 tackles, including a sack and seven for loss, while his presence allowed LBs Nick LaGrippo (127 tackles) and Dylan Murphy (110 tackles) as well as DE Doug Zockoll (11 sacks) to shine.
St. Joseph (Mont.), Sr., 6-2, 215, committed to Duke
The type of athleticism that Giles-Harris brought to the middle linebacker position isn’t typically matched in rugged North Jersey, especially with the rough and tumble LBs in his own league, but Giles-Harris showed off his great power and speed week-to-week with 95 total tackles, 14 tackles for loss, and four interceptions. Add in the two blocked punts, and a pair of fumble recoveries, and it’s obvious that Giles-Harris is a stat-sheet filler.
St. Peter's Prep, Sr., 6-3, 215
Much was made of Brandon Wimbush's fabulous passing in the second half of the Marauders' comeback win over Bergen Catholic in the state semifinals, but the spirited defensive play of Fox played an equally integral role in the win. Fox became a divining rod to the football, with seven second-half tackles that helped blank the Crusaders and guide St. Peter's along. Fox, who recorded 77 tackles this season, is expected to choose between Stanford and Virginia.
St. Peter's Prep, Sr., 6-1, 195, committed to Alabama
Fitzpatrick entered the season as one of the state's top two senior recruits (with teammate Brandon Wimbush) and finished it making those prognosticators look like smart people. His leadership and sparkling play out of the secondary helped limit opponents to 11.8 ppg. and his contributions on the other side made St. Peter's the most devastating offense in the state. The Alabama recruit compiled 65 tackles and three interceptions and also caught 45 passes for 1,111 yards and 12 touchdowns.
South Brunswick, Sr., 6-0, 185, committed to Syracuse
Strickland's combination of speed, power and intelligence made him a potent, full-game force whether handing the football or making life difficult for all others who did. He recorded seven interceptions (one for a touchdown) and had 61 tackles and four sacks out of the secondary to steer the Vikings (11-1) to the Central Jersey, Group 5 championship game. He also ran 102 times for 1,200 yards and 17 touchdowns and caught a pass for a TD.
Don Bosco Prep, Sr., 5-10, 180
It’s no secret that Don Bosco struggled with game-changing type plays this season, but don’t look at Larry Stevens. The senior with offers from UConn and Army was the big play guy when needed for the Ironmen. Whether it was a game-clinching kick return against the number one team in the country, St. Thomas Aquinas (Fl.), a rushing touchdown against DePaul, or a pick six to kick start a victory against Passaic Tech, Stevens was there.
Phillipsburg, Sr., 6-2, 215
Anthony Guarino's 1-yard TD run in overtime gave Phillipsburg the winning points against Colonia, 28-21, in the North Jersey, Section 2, Group 4 final, but Lowe's 10 tackles in regulation did just as much to help the Stateliners reach that point. This hard-hitting LB compiled 78 tackles to lead his squad in that category for a second straight year and steer Phillipsburg (11-1) to a second consecutive sectional crown. The Stateliners allowed 10.9 ppg.
Roxbury, Jr., 5-8, 168
The sterling offensive play of fellow juniors Grant Dixon (QB) and Stephen Loreng (WR) reduced the necessity for Roumes' punting, but he certainly delivered when called upon. Roumes punted 16 times for a robust 41.2 average, while also contributing on both sides of the ball as a RB and OLB. He rushed for over 500 yards and five touchdowns and caught three of Dixon's 27 scoring passes. Loreng caught 15.
