NJSIAA Playoff Format

1973 and prior, there were no playoff games as we know of today.  State Titles were decided by the NJSIAA Championship Committee.  It wasn't until 1974 that the playoff format was developed to decide on the field, a true champion.  From 1974 through 1997, there were four teams that qualified for the playoffs.  From 1998 to present, the playoff field comprised eight teams.

Woodbridge Football - 2016, The 93rd Season!

Greg Tufaro's GMC football Week 4 predictions and analysis

by WoodbridgeFootball.com / MyCentralJersey.com / NJ.com / TAPinto.net on 09/29/16

, @GregTufaro 11:40 p.m. EDT September 28, 2016

No. 6 St. Joseph (3-0) at No. 8 Woodbridge (1-2), 7 p.m.:
The Falcons have offensive balance with gifted quarterback Paul Cocozziello and the running tandem of Manny Resto and bruising fullback Luke Yakely. The trio benefit from the play of an outstanding offensive line that features Bucknell commit P.J. Barr and John Olmstead, both of whom stand 6-foot-4 and weigh 270 pounds. The Falcons have several outstanding skill position players including A.J. Murray, Jordan Davis and Jon Sot. The latter’s biggest contribution to the team, however, is in the placekicking department, where Sot has already booted field goals of 55 and 45 yards. He also routinely booms kickoffs into the end zone for touchbacks. St. Joseph has outscored three opponents who have combined for a 1-8 record 122-27. Roderic Carson is one of the league’s best defensive ends. Woodbridge is coming off a heartbreaking 15-12 loss to South Plainfield, which scored the winning touchdown in the game’s final minute. Woodbridge fell 7-6 to Manasquan the previous week. The Barrons opened the year with a 19-14 win over Colonia, which fell 41-6 to St. Joseph last weekend. Woodbridge quarterback Donovan Tabon has completed 22 of 39 passes for 209 yards. Da’Avian Ellington, a transfer from Carteret, has rushed 47 times for 268 yards and two touchdowns. Quaasim Glover remains one of the league’s top receivers with 14 catches for 136 yards. Nick Nyers, son of former head coach Bill and younger brother of Woodbridge’s all-time leading receiver Anthony, paces the defense with 33 tackles. Antoine Hall (22 tackles), Dylan Leone (19 tackles) and Alex LaGrippo (19 tackles) also shine on defense. The Barrons dealt St. Joseph a heartbreaking 27-25 loss last year. Pick: St. Joseph 24-17.

WF.com's Week 4 - GMC White Division - Game Predictions

by WoodbridgeFootball.com / MyCentralJersey.com / NJ.com / TAPinto.net on 09/27/16

By: WoodbridgeFootball.com September 27, 2016  2100


Week 3 Record: 3 - 1     .750

·         Colonia over Red Bank Catholic (x)

·         Kennedy over JP Stevens (x)

·         South Plainfield over North Brunswick (x)

·         St Joseph is sporting a 3-0 record. They defeated North Brunswick, Perth Amboy and Colonia, a combined 1-8 record. They average 40+ points a game and are led offensively by PJ Barr, John Olstead on the OL (both are 6’4” 270), Paul Cocoziello at QB and Manny Resto at RB.  They enjoy a huge threat in the name of John Sot, their PK. He hasn’t missed a PAT all season and has connected on a 55, 45, and 29 yard FG. Their defense is led by Rodiric Carson at DE, an absolute beast and D1 prospect, allowing a stingy average of 9 points per game against. They are well coached and disciplined, and have a ferocious desire to excel.    

Woodbridge 1-2, defeated Colonia in game one, and then suffered two losses that very easily could have gone into the win column. Down 7-6 against Shore powerhouse Manasquan, with time in the 4th quarter and driving toward a go ahead score, they put the ball on the ground and it was recovered by Manasquan ending the opportunity. A failure to run the clock out with under 3:00 left and a 12-7 lead against South Plainfield opened the door for the Tigers to get into the endzone.  The offense is led by Keyshawn Henry at RB / QB, DaAvian Ellington at RB, Quaasim Glover at WR, and junior Jakop Mankowski on the OL (6’3” 290). They average 12.3 points per game and are a lighten strike type offense.  Defense though, is Woodbridge’s strength, with a 12 points per game against average. Led by Alex LaGrippo at T, Dylan Leone at LB, and Marquan Payne at DE, Nick Nyers at LB, and Al-Kidir Hunter on special teams, they will ring someone’s bell.

In 13 years, I have never picked anyone over Woodbridge. There is always a path to a win. For the Barrons, that would be through their defense. I believe Woodbridge may be superior in that regard. There is a quote that I’ve used over and over… “If you score, you may win. If they don’t score, you can’t lose!” If the Barrons play a defensive gem with no errors, and then, produce some electricity on the offensive side, the outcome will be positive. If they don’t, the Falcons are going to drop some tonnage on them and it wouldn’t be pretty. With that said…

Woodbridge (x) over St Joseph

·        Perth Amboy and Carteret – Bye

 (x) Home Team

Season Record: 11 - 3     .786

ANALYSIS: In the GMC White Division, the cream is coming to the top and I believe will remain there for the duration of the season. Here are my rankings after Week Three for the White Division.
1. St Joseph  3-0;  A premier team with great coaching. Prediction: 7-1 in the Division. Playoffs.

2. South Plainfield 3-0; Three easy wins left on the schedule. Prediction: 6-2 in the Division. Playoffs.

3. Woodbridge 1-2; Gave it away to Manasquan and South Plainfield. Prediction: 6-2 in the Division. Playoffs.

4. Carteret  3-0; Four top tier opponents left. They will defeat one. Prediction: 5-3 in the Division. Playoffs.

5. Colonia 1-2; Four wins left on the schedule. Prediction: 5-3 in the Division. Playoffs.  

6. Kennedy 2-1; One win left on the schedule. Prediction: 3-5 in the Division. Consolation.

7. JP Stevens 0-2; Two wins left on the schedule. Prediction: 2-6 in the Division. Consolation.

8. North Brunswick 0-3; Toss up with Perth Amboy. Prediction: 1-7 in the Division. Consolation.

9. Perth Amboy 0-3; Toss up with North Brunswick. Prediction: 1-7 in the Division. Consolation.


Unless there are upsets, I don’t see much movement.

GMC WEEK 3 TOP 10

by WoodbridgeFootball.com / MyCentralJersey.com / NJ.com / TAPinto.net on 09/25/16

, @GregTufaro 9:53 a.m. EDT September 25, 2016

1. Piscataway (3-0):
 Senior running back Elijah Barnwell carried 17 times for 161 yards and two touchdowns including a tide-turning score that lifted the Chiefs to a 26-14 win over South Brunswick, the team’s first over the defending Central Group V champion Vikings since 2002. Behind a veteran offensive line, Piscataway amassed 269 rushing yards. End Ibn Robinson (two sacks), strong safety Brevin Donerson (interception return for a touchdown) and linebacker Jevon Buckmire recorded nine tackles apiece. Next: Bye.

2. Sayreville (3-0): Offensive balance propelled the Bombers to a 54-28 victory over New Brunswick. The points were the most Sayreville scored since posting a 56-26 win over Monroe in November 2013.

Nick Sodano eclipsed the 100-yard mark for the third consecutive game with 143 yards on 21 carries including a 49-yard jaunt. He also had an interception.

7. Carteret (3-0): The Ramblers amassed 442 yards from scrimmage and six players scored one touchdown apiece as they rolled to a 40-0 win over North Brunswick. Carteret rushed for 354 yards.

For just the third time since 1982, South Plainfield opened the season 3-0 following a 15-12 victory over Woodbridge in South Plainfield.

South Plainfield started 3-0 in 2013 and 1982, and continued that trend behind a fourth-quarter rally. Trailing 12-7, South Plainfield quarterback Charles Lovett scored on a 2-yard run before Ben Lundy caught a reception from Deshai Smith for the 2-point conversion.

Lovett finished the game with 110 yards on 19 carries, averaging six yards per run. South Plainfield's Zachary Delvecchio, who finished with 90 yards on the ground on 16 carries, scored on a 3-yard run to give South Plainfield a 7-6 lead.

Smith finished with 50 yards on the ground on four carries. Lovett went 7-of-13 for 60 yards in the air. Jean Sapini caught three passes for 34 yards to lead South Plainfield.

South Plainfield rallies for win

by WoodbridgeFootball.com / MyCentralJersey.com / NJ.com / TAPinto.net on 09/23/16

Andy Mendlowitz, @andy_mendlowitz 11:34 p.m. EDT September 23, 2016

SOUTH PLAINFIELD — Charles Lovett picked a good time for his first dive.

With the game on the line, the South Plainfield High School quarterback rolled out and flew into the end zone as two defenders moved in. The touchdown with 36 seconds left gave the Tigers a 15-12 win over Woodbridge in a rugged Greater Middlesex Conference White Division game.

“I saw green grass and I went for it,” the junior said. “I just saw the end zone and I knew I had to get in it.”

The touchdown and his two-yard conversion pass to Benjamin Lundy capped a 90-yard drive in two minutes and an improbable win. South Plainfield scored nearly 48 minutes apart in a game consisting mostly of big plays and tight defense. The game featured two teams in the Home New Tribune’s Top 10— South Plainfield was No. 5 and Woodbridge No. 7.

“They bent a little bit, but they manned up,” South Plainfield coach Gary Cassio said. “Offensively, we weren’t at our best. But crunch time, they stepped up. The boys all stepped up. You give Charlie Lovett credit. You give whoever you want credit. It was a complete team effort. Defense locked it up. The kids were motivated tonight. They didn’t want to give this one up. It was a big game for them.”

After the first minute, fans might have been expecting a shootout. South Plainfield’s Deshai Smith returned the opening kickoff 75 yards to Woodbridge’s 14-yard line as Woodbridge’s Keshawn Henry chased him down. The Tigers’ Zach DelVecchio reeled off an 11-yard run followed by a three-yard touchdown 33 seconds into the game. Smith’s extra point made it 7-0 with 11:27 remaining in the first quarter.

Two plays later, Woodbridge’s Da’Avian Ellington sprinted down the left sideline for a 71-yard touchdown. The Barrons missed the extra point, but cut the deficit to 7-6 with 11:09 left in the quarter.

Woodbridge struck again with 5:37 remaining in the second quarter. Daniels Messiah broke for an 84-yard touchdown to give his team a 12-7 lead. The two-point conversion run failed for the Barrons.

On the drive before that touchdown, South Plainfield added another gutsy, big play. On a fourth-and-five from its own 45-yard line, DelVecchio took the snap on a punt and spurted forward for a 39-yard gain. DelVecchio, though, remained down for a couple minutes after the play before jogging off. He was sidelined a few snaps as the Tigers’ drive stalled, turning the ball over on downs.

Toward the end of the first half, Woodbridge crossed into South Plainfield territory. But back-to-back sacks from the Tigers’ Austin Fritze and Luke Niemeyer forced Woodbridge to punt with 25 second remaining in the half.

South Plainfield nearly had two epic drives in the fourth quarter. The first one lasted just over seven minutes. It included the Tigers converting on a fourth-and-two from their own 33-yard line when DelVecchio had a seven-yard gain. The 5-foot-9, 225-pounder also had a 21-yard run, and appeared to catch a 25-yard touchdown from Lovett with just over four minutes remaining. Lovett threw as he was getting tackled from Woodbridge’s Marquan Payne. The scored, however, was negated from a holding penalty.

South Plainfield forced a quick punt and got the ball back with 2:14 remaining at its 25-yard line. A holding penalty pushed it to the Tigers’ 10-yard line with 2:09 left. South Plainfield moved the ball with a 10-yard pass from Lovett to Ryan Stankan and a facemask penalty. Lovett then reeled off a 52-yard up the middle to Woodbridge’s 9-yard line for first-and-goal with the clock running. On fourth-and-goal from the 2-yard, Lovett said he had the option of throwing the ball or keeping it. He kept it.

“We were going to get that ball in no matter what,” Lovett said. “Team win. Everybody pitched in. It wasn’t just me. It was the whole team. We pitched in. We stuck in the whole entire second half. We were able to come up with the win.”

No. 7 Woodbridge (1-1) at No. 5 South Plainfield (2-0):
The Tigers’ Zach DelVecchio leads all rushers with 240 yards and two scores. Junior quarterback Charles Lovett has given South Plainfield another dimension in that he can run it too with 120 yards last week against J.P. Stevens. Lovett has also scored four rushing touchdowns. Dillon Harris and Ryan Marston have been stalwarts for the defense recording 38 tackles, 19 tackles for a loss, two sacks and one interception.

Woodbridge lost a tough 7-6 home game to Shore Conference power Manasquan. Keyshaun Henry scored the lone touchdown for Woodbridge on a 20-yard from the Wildcat formation but the PAT failed. Da’Avian Ellington has shared the running load with Henry. Quarterback Donovan Tabon will look to get the ball to Quaasim Glover, a two-time All-Area selection at wide receiver. Alex LaGrippo, Marquan Payne and Dylan Leone lead the pressure-happy Barrons. This game will be a close one just like last year. PICK: South Plainfield

Mid-State 38 proposes merger with GMC

The Greater Middlesex Conference as we know it may become another super conference, like the North Jersey Super Conference with its 115 schools or the ever-expanding West Jersey Football League, which now encompasses the southern tier of the state and has 95 members.

The Mid-State 38 has proposed joining forces with the GMC in an effort to create an even playing field when scheduling Group I through Group V. The feelings among football coaches in the county have been mixed. Travel costs are an issue as well as the time it will take to bus from Sayreville to Phillipsburg. What about freshmen games and JV games that are held on Fridays and Mondays as schools get out at different times and then have to travel. A 3:45 p.m. start just doesn’t seem possible in some instances, and then there is the bus ride back after the game on a school night.

Here are the six proposed divisions:

Division 1A

South Brunswick, Elizabeth, Piscataway, Old Bridge, Westfield

Division 1B

Ridge, Hunterdon Central, Linden, Union, Montgomery

Division 2A

Bridgewater-Raritan, Hillsborough, Edison, Monroe, Watchung Hills

Division 2B

Franklin, New Brunswick, J.P. Stevens, Perth Amboy, North Brunswick

Division 3A

East Brunswick, Plainfield, Summit, Colonia, Phillipsburg

Division 3B

Sayreville, Immaculata, Woodbridge, St. Joseph (Met.), North Hunterdon

Division 4B

Voorhees, South Plainfield, Rahway, Governor Livingston, North Plainfield

Division 5A

Somerville, Bernards, New Providence, Delaware Valley, A.L. Johnson

Division 5B

Spotswood, Metuchen, Roselle, Bishop Ahr, Hillside

Division 6A

Dunellen, Belvidere, South Hunterdon, Roselle Park, Brearley

Division 6B

Middlesex, South River, Dayton, Bound Brook, Highland Park, Manville

I know that there are many questions to be answered by coaches, athletic directors, principals and superintendents. My recommendation is to have a summit meeting with all parties to discuss concerns, rational, costs, travel times and the direction of football in Middlesex County as well as throughout the state. No vote should be taken until these matters are spelled out clearly and that conference members are sure that there are no back door deals being made to appease a select few.

If this is headed in a statewide direction, with the dissolution of conferences as we know them, then why not revisit the Borden/Bruno plan that missed passage in 2013 by a mere 23 votes? Go back to four group classifications with two divisions of 10 teams and play for your division trophy. All schools open the same weekend with no byes, Thanksgiving can be built in but requires two regional crossovers (formerly known as consolations), play to overall Group championships as football is the only sport that does not

Carteret 28 - JFK 7:  ISELIN - Last year, the Carteret High School football program went 1-9 in a rebuilding season, but the team gained valuable experience for its young players.

This year, the Ramblers (2-0) are using that experienced and translating it onto the field.

Carteret saw two battle-tested seniors account for three scores in the second quarter on Friday to help the Ramblers take a commanding first half lead on their way to a 28-7 victory over J.F Kennedy in a Greater Middlesex Conference White Division showdown.

“I think we needed to throw the ball,” Carteret coach Matt Yascko said. “It took us a while to get going there, but the defense presented 10 guys in the line of scrimmage so we had to throw it, and that opened it up for us.”

Both teams entered the matchup with impressive wins in their season openers, and the game began with both defenses playing greedy as the game remained scoreless at the end of the first quarter.

Carteret senior Quartius Byrd scored the games’ first touchdown with an impressive 53-yard run, where he broke three tackles before tip-toeing down the sideline to give the Ramblers a 7-0 lead with 10:47 remaining in the first half.

Byrd would finish the contest with 81-yards on the ground on 11 rushing attempts.

On the Ramblers' very next possession, senior quarterback Angelo Golino threw a seven-yard fade to senior wide receiver Keanu Chapman to put Carteret up 14-0. Just four minutes later, Chapman would score his second receiving touchdown of the game with a 31-yard reception where Golino placed the ball perfectly in the corner of the end zone to give the Ramblers a commanding 21-0 lead late in the second quarter.

“Angelo just put it in a beautiful spot,” Chapman said. “When you have a great quarterback you have to go out and make plays.”

Golino finished the game with 84-yards and three touchdowns while Chapman finished with 67 receiving yards on five catches.

While the Carteret offense opened up in the second quarter, the Mustangs (1-1) responded by scoring the teams’ first touchdown with a 46-yard touchdown run by senior quarterback Kyle Heaney.

The Mustangs' defense also looked rejuvenated in the second half as they forced a turnover on downs on the Ramblers first possession. The Mustangs could not capitalize offensively, but the defense was able to force a fumble and recover at the 50-yard line to begin the fourth quarter.

With the ball at midfield, the Mustangs needed a touchdown to bring the lead within a score, but the Mustangs' offense couldn’t seize the opportunity as Heaney fumbled for the third time in the game.

The Ramblers would later seal the victory with a four-yard touchdown catch by fullback Dwayne Sharpe, putting Carteret up three scores with only 3:56 left in regulation.

Although the Ramblers won, J.F. Kennedy head coach Pete Christathakis was proud of the way his team didn’t give up in the second half.

“I’m definitely proud of our kids for their composure to finish the game,” Christathakis said. “I think we have strong leaders who have the desire and the will to win but we just have to play better football.”

Mustangs senior captain Sean Aston suffered a high-ankle sprain in the first half and couldn’t finish the rest of the contest. Without its best offensive and defensive lineman, J.F. Kennedy was still able to just hold the high-powered Carteret offense to just one touchdown in the second half.

“I saw two pretty tough football teams in a dog fight,” Christathakis said. “I tip my hat to Carteret.”

Manasquan 7 - Woodbridge 6:  No News Reports available.

GMC Football Week 2 Predictions

by WoodbridgeFootball.com / MyCentralJersey.com / NJ.com / TAPinto.net on 09/16/16

Marcus Borden, @bordenfb4ever 11 p.m. EDT September 15, 2016


Manasquan (1-0) at No. 6 Woodbridge (1-0): The honeymoon is over for new coach Kevin Coleman as he was able to win his first game last Friday, which just happened to be against crosstown rival Colonia. Now it is on to an unfamiliar foe in Manasquan from the Shore Conference. The Warriors have been a perennial power, making 32 playoff appearances and playing in 17 state championship games while winning 11 sectional titles. They play a brand of smash mouth football thriving on the run and play action pass. They opened up the 2016 campaign downing a tough Long Branch team 28-14 racking up 300 yards of total offense. Expect a similar style game plan as the visitors travel to Woodbridge.

The Barrons need to be focused on this week’s opponent and they have to forget about last week’s win over rival Colonia. They cannot afford to get behind early against a team that likes to run the ball and milk the clock. The youngster Donovan Tabon does not want to be forced to air it out and play catch up. Establishing the run with Da’Avian Ellington and Keyhaun Henry will set up the pass to one of the league’s premiere pass catchers in Quaasim Glover. Expect Marquan Payne, Alex LaGrippo and the entire Woodbridge defense to rudely welcome the Warriors to Middlesex County. PICK: Woodbridge

If I had another chance:

I would study harder
I would take the College Testing serious
I would complete all my class assignments
I would prepare for my Final Exams
I would be an inspirational Student Athlete
I would listen to my parents, teachers and coaches
I would train harder to be the best
I would be a ferocious competitor on game day
I would be a good sportsman regardless of the score
I would prepare myself for life after school
I would evaluate my future financial goals
And, I would strive to be the best in everything I do


Life is hard. Be ready for it!
