Post 955 – Bull Session Week Two

One thing about MSG broadcasting games this year is it is good to hear Jimmy Cavallo once again after a few years off….Speaking of that, it is also good to see Joe Hofmann covering Morris County football again for Morris Sussex Sports….I remember when Chris Simms was the quarterback at Ramapo, there was a lot of publicity with his being the son of Phil Simms. His brother Matt later became well known at Don Bosco for that reason. But when I watched Westfield defeat Union this past Saturday, the Westfield quarterback was Trey Brown, the son of another former Giant quarterback, Dave Brown. Trey Brown verbally committed to Maryland to play lacrosse, but he is also a good football player. He may not throw the ball around with great frequency, but he showed his toughness, especially on the winning touchdown when he crashed through the line and moved the pile. Any team in the state would love to have him on their team….A very good player who slips under the radar is Nottingham’s Quiyon McMillan, a wide receiver/defensive back. For the last two years or more, he has made plenty of plays….On the uniform front, Bergen Tech gets a thumbs up for their black jersey, gold numbers and pants, and a white helmet. I may have gone with a gold helmet, but the knight emblem looks good. I am told they have gold numbers on their white uniforms, which I would recommend black numbers….Another good uniform is the Cherokee home orange and white….….I was driving through Nutley today and saw the high school field with their newly installed lights and I thought to myself that another Saturday afternoon possibility for me to attend games has gone up in flames. I would be interested in seeing who played their home games on Saturday afternoon twenty years ago before getting lights and switching to Friday nights. I think the list would be lengthy….I don’t know when the last time Paulsboro started 0-2, but it was more than twenty years ago….Speaking of twenty years, Gridiron New Jersey is in its twentieth year posting scores….There were some good performances, according to Ramapo’s Jack Grusser and Hun School’s Marco Lainez had nearly identical performances passing: Grusser was 14-16–253 yards and three touchdowns and Lainez was 14-16-246 and three touchdowns….Top rushing performances were from Park Ridge quarterback Cole Hughes running for 252 yards and three touchdowns on 26 carries. For Long Branch, Sekou Kamau ran for 201 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries, while Zaheem Brown had 131 and two touchdowns on nine carries….Marlboro is off to a 2-0 start and I noticed they returned two interceptions for touchdowns in last week’s 35-7 win over Freehold Township….It is special when a small town football team wins a championship. The 2006 Bogota and 2010 Wallington are two examples. Both teams brought what looked like the whole town to Giants Stadium and burglars could have done well those evenings….….That’s it for now; I will be back with more bull next week
