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.

DeMild sparks Sayreville to final, stopping Middletown South in high school football

by WoodbridgeFootball.com / MyCentralJersey.com / NJ.com / TAPinto.net on 11/19/16

, @smfalk11:36 p.m. EST November 18, 2016

MIDDLETOWN -  Many doubted Sayreville could bounce back so quickly after most of its 2014 season was canceled in the wake of a hazing scandal.

However, Sayreville senior quarterback Jayson DeMild, his teammates and the Sayreville coaching staff were not among the doubters..

"I knew we were going to come back. We were destined for this,'' DeMild said.

Sayreville, which won sectional championship three-straight seasons from 2010-2012 and has won four sectional championships in all, will play for the NJSIAA North II Group IV championship in two weeks against Middletown North after it outlasted defending North II Group IV champion Middletown South. 42-28, Friday night at "The Swamp.''

"This is honestly the closest team I've ever been a part of,'' DeMild said. "We have so much chemistry.' We will do anything for each other.'''

The Bombers (9-2) have talent, skill, size, athleticism on both sides of the ball. They also have a tremendous amount of poise. Each time, Middletown South (7-3) scored, Sayreville immediately retaliated with a score of its own

But, most of all, Sayreville has DeMild, a quarterback with immense of ability and heart. DeMild threw for 345 yards and four TDs and also ran for a TD.

"I've been saying from Day 1, we don't get go anywhere in this offense (Sayreville runs the no-huddle out of the spread) without a tremendous field general at that position,'' said Sayreville coach Chris Beagan, who is in his second season as Sayreville's head coach, but coached Monroe to the 2009 Central Group III championship with a win over Middletown South. "He does a tremendous job of being a leader on and off the field.''

DeMild's poise and arm strength were exemplified by the play he made on a second and 13 from the Sayreville 15 with less than seven minutes left and the score tied 28-28. He stepped up in the pocket to avoid the rush and then fired a bullet over the middle and beyond the safety. He hit sophomore receiver Jacari Carter in stride and Carter (seven receptions for 182 yards and two TDs) raced the rest of the way untoched for an 85-yard TD that gave Sayreville the lead for good at 35-28 with 6:36 left.

"He's done it all for us all year long,'' Beagan said. "It hasn't always been easy. He's been pressured. He's had to stand in the pocket. He's taken some hits.''

"Their quarterback made some great plays. He showed a lot of poise and showed off an explosive arm,'' Middletown South coach Steve Antonucci said.

Middletown South moved to the Sayreville 43 on its ensuing possession before a Carter interception on a second-and-10 ended the drive. The Eagles used their two remaining timeouts and had Sayreville in a third-and-3 at its own 33 before senior running back Michael Liberti spun away from a tackle and raced 65 yards to the Eagles' 2. Senior running back Ja'Quae Roberts bulldozed in on the next play to put the game away with 3:07 remaining.

"This (Sayreville) is a team that was hungry coming in here,'' Antonucci said. "With all the things they've gone through, to get here (Friday) and get this opportunity, I told our kids during the week, 'This is not some average team coming in here. This is a  team that has the hunger and they're starving to get back to a game like this. They're going to come in here and give their best effort'. They sure did.''

 Middletown South had tied the game 28-28 with 7:27 left on a beautifully-executed 32-yard Aneesh Agrawal (163 yards passing and three TD passes) to Anthony Summey (114 yards rushing and a TD and 32 yards receiving and a TD) screen pass on a second-and-8.

Sayreville had taken a 28-21 lead on an 8-yard DeMild to Jahsim Floyd TD pass on a fade pattern on second-and-goal and ensuing Mark Whitford to Andrew Wille 2-point conversion pass with 10:21 left. The TD came eight plays after Wille ran for 11 yards on a fourth-and-3 fake punt from the Sayreville 43 that Beagan said was ad-libbed after the original play call was supposed to be a pass to the backside.

A 14-yard Agrawal  to Samson Dube TD pass on a bubble screen and Christopher Kaldrovics extra point gave Middletown South a 21-20 lead with 4:08 left in the third quarter. That was Middletown South's only lead of the night.

Sayreville led 14-7 at the half on a DeMild to Carter 33-yard TD pass and a DeMild 1-yard dive with 17.6 seconds left in the first half. DeMild's TD cam e after Middletown South had tied the game 7-7 on a Summey 6-yard run with 4:17 left in the half.

An Agrawal to Jake Krellin 32-yard TD pass tied it 14-14. Sayeville regained the lead 20-14 on a 36-yard DeMild to Floyd TD pass.

Key play: DeMild's 85-yard TD pass to Carter on a second-and-13 gave Sayreville the lead for good at 35-28 with 6:36 left.

Offensive game ball: DeMild, who threw for 345 yards and four TDs and ran for a TD.

Defensive game ball: Behr Tristan, who had consecutive sacks on the game's first series after Agrawal ran for 53 yards to the Sayreville 15 on the first play of the game.

Up next: Sayreville will meet Middletown North (8-2) in two weeks in the North II Group IV championship game. Middletown South will be at Middletown North on Thanksgiving Day in a game in which it can clinch the outright Class B North championship with a win.

Middletown North blanks Summit in N2G4 semis, reaches sectional final for first time since 1996

MIDDLETOWN – Middletown North was balanced on offense and relentless on defense Friday night and the second-seeded Lions (8-2) advanced to the North 2, Group 4 finals with a dominating 20-0 victory over third-seeded Summit.

Middletown North will play Sayreville, which ousted defending sectional champ Middletown South on Friday night, in the sectional final. North will be making its first sectional final appearance since 1996.

It was the fourth straight victory for Middletown North, which looks to end a 16-game losing streak to Middletown South on Thanksgiving Day.

The Middletown North offense was at its mix-and-match best. The Lions had 194 yards rushing and 240 yards passing.

Middletown North received a pair of field goals from Joey Cavanagh, a rare touchdown from a yard out by quarterback Donald Glenn and a five-yard scoring jaunt from Dwight Wilkerson on a jet sweep.

The Middletown North defense was equally impressive. It limited a potent Summit ground game to 96 yards – 24 in the second half. The Lion defense forced and recovered a fumble at its own eight yard line in the second quarter and picked off a pass in the end zone to keep the Hilltoppers off the scoreboard.

North scored on its first possession when Cavanagh converted from 23 yards out.

Wilkerson (6 carries, 46 yards) scored with 4:08 left in the first half for a 10-0 lead.

In the third quarter Glenn (17 for 27) capped a 13-play, 80-yard drive with a TD run on a naked bootleg to make it 17-0.

Then Cavanagh connected from 25 yards out to complete the scoring.

Connor Welsh, who looked in top form after missing most of the season with a broken arm, led Middletown North with 105 yards 15 carries.

Summit finished the season 8-3.

Middletown North rides fast start past Woodbridge

by WoodbridgeFootball.com / MyCentralJersey.com / NJ.com / TAPinto.net on 11/11/16

Thomas Bogert, Correspondent 10:48 p.m. EST November 11, 2016

MIDDLETOWN — Middletown North received the first-half kickoff against Woodbridge and from the moment the ball was caught, the Lions were running downhill and defeated Woodbridge 33-14.

When Middletown North escaped the harsh November cold into the locker room at halftime, they took a 27-0 lead with them. Despite the conditions being unfavorable to an aerial attack, Lions quarterback Donald Glenn hooked up with wide receiver Brendan Kube on five occasions for 153 yards and a touchdown.

Glenn threw for a total of 199 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions.

"Brendan does well every week," Middletown North head coach Joe Trezza said. "He finds ways to get open and makes big plays. He’s been a great player for us."

Kube's touchdown came on North’s third drive. Following successive touchdown drives, their defense forced a fumble that Justin Muller recovered, handing Glenn the ball at the Woodbridge 35-yard line.

When Glenn saw single coverage to his left, he flashed Kube a quick sign to audible a go route. Within two seconds, Glenn demanded the snap, manipulated the defense to lean away from Kube with his eyes fixated to the right, came back to his left and arced an inch-perfect deep ball -- one that only Kube could catch.

He stretched, showed strong fingertips in grabbing the catch, padding the Lions’ lead to a seemingly insurmountable 20-0 before even a quarter had been played.

"I think us fumbling the ball and the slow start that we had affected us tremendously," Woodbridge head coach Kevin Coleman said. "We can’t fumble the ball, give them the ball and give up deep passes and expect to win against good teams."

It was such a brisk, cold and windy night that the players and fans weren’t the only ones affected: the cheerleaders fought a futile battle of keeping their megaphones upright against the wind. It was a constant routine of cheer, grab megaphone that’s rolled a few feet away, rinse, repeat.

Returning to the third quarter 27 points in the hole with little hope, it would have been easy for Woodbridge to fold. Instead, they kept fighting, didn’t allow a touchdown and scored a pair of their own in the second half.

"I’m glad that they fought till the end. They showed the character that we have," Coleman said. "We’re not going to give up. We’re not going to lay down and let them continue to score. They definitely fought until the end and I’m proud of them."

Woodbridge lost its starting quarterback in their penultimate regular season game and have since had to turn to running back Keshaun Henry to run the offense. Not how Coleman drew it up this August.

"That’s kind of tough when you’re trying to throw the ball and you’re not a quarterback, just a playmaker,” Coleman said. “But he played hard and I’m proud of the kids.”

The flip side to Woodbridge’s second half resiliency was Middletown North’s complacency, something Trezza wasn’t too concerned with, though a little upset.

"Our defense started off real well. We got some turnovers and we stopped ‘em and we shut them out in the first half," Trezza said. "We just got a little sloppy at the end just trying to some other people in the game. We just didn’t finish it off well so we’re a little upset about that."

Key play: Glenn's 32-yard touchdown at the end of the first quarter.

Offensive game ball: Kube, hoarded more than three quarters of Glenn's yards.

Defensive game ball: Muller with a key fumble recovery, a sack and consistent pressure.

Next game: Middletown North advances in the NJSIAA playoffs.

North Jersey 2 – Group 4, Round One – Game Predictions

by WoodbridgeFootball.com / MyCentralJersey.com / NJ.com / TAPinto.net on 11/08/16

By: Charles McDevitt  WoodbridgeFootball.com – November 8, 2016, 1005


Week 9 Record: 3-1  .750

Friday, Nov. 11

Woodbridge (5-4) - (x) Middletown North (6-2)
Middletown North has some pretty good talent on the offensive side of the ball, but
Woodbridge has a standout defensive unit led by Nick Nyers 52-LB, Antoine Hall 33-LB, Marquan Payne 44-DE, Alex LaGrippo 59-NT, and Dylan Leone 52-LB/DL. The Barrons have a 127 PA in 9 games, for a 14.1 PA PG. Nyers has recorded 108.5 TKL/SAC, Hall 65.5 TKL/SAC, Leone 42.5 TKL/SAC, LaGrippo 51.5 TKL/SAC, and Payne 54 TKL/SAC and 4 FR. Stopping the inside tackle run is mandatory, as well as keeping the edge while pressuring the QB. It isn’t going to be easy, but it’s doable. 

The secondary with Darin Tabon 4-DB, Quaasim Glover 2-FS, Keshaun Henry 3-DB, Hura Blaine 7-DB, and Chase Modica 21-DB have matured and are producing good numbers with a combined 105 TKL, 6 INT, and 14 PD. The Barrons have to maintain discipline deep, allowing the play to stay in front of them. A catch and tackle isn’t a dagger, a lapse in allowing them behind you is.

This pick is based on four factors.

First, both teams have had one common opponent, Manasquan. Woodbridge lost to Squan, 7-6 in a defensive gem from both teams. Middletown North lost 31-21. One point for Wood.

Second, Mid-North has a 157 PA record in 8 games for a 19.6 PPG. Wood has a 127 PA in 9 games for a 14.1 PPG. One more point for Wood.

Third, Mid-North has a 242 PF record in 8 games for a 30.3 PPG. Wood has a 216 PF in 9 games for a 24.0 PPG. One point for Mid-North.

Now, I know that numbers can be made to say almost anything. The fourth and final, and most important factor is one that isn’t on any stat chart. It is individual discipline, confidence and desire. Whichever team possesses more of it, wins and advances!

It will all come down to the defense of Woodbridge. “If you score, you may win. If they don’t score, you can’t lose!”  If they can stay true to form, and keep Mid-North to 3 or less scores, combined with their offense getting busy to attain their season points average, success should follow.

With that said…
Woodbridge over Middletown North (WOOD 3+)

Sayreville (6-2) over (x) Phillipsburg (5-3)
Phillipsburg has had an average season compared to the recent past. Sayreville has fined tuned their team offensively and defensively and is at the top of their game.
Sayreville over Phillipsburg (S'VILLE 10+)

(x) Middletown South (6-2) over Kennedy (4-4)
I’d love to see Kennedy advance, but I don’t see a path. Mid-So is a very steep hill to climb.
Middletown South over Kennedy (MID-SO 20+)

Saturday, Nov. 12

Colonia (4-4) over (x) Summit (7-1)
Colonia is traveling to Summit for this contest, and I believe they are bringing with them a team that wouldn’t take no for an answer.
Colonia over Summit (COL 6+)

Home Team (x)
Season Record:  29-11   .725

At least a dozen GMC football teams have unofficially qualified for the playoffs

by WoodbridgeFootball.com / MyCentralJersey.com / NJ.com / TAPinto.net on 11/05/16

, @GregTufaro 12:30 a.m. EDT November 5, 2016

A dozen Greater Middlesex Conference high school football teams have unofficially qualified for the NJSIAA playoffs and one more team remains on the bubble.

The NJSIAA will announce official playoff pairings and consolation matchups for non-qualifiers on Sunday.

A marquee first-round matchup will unofficially pit fifth-seeded South Brunswick at fourth-seeded Old Bridge in Central Group V, where the defending sectional champion Vikings are looking to avenge a 31-28 season-opening loss to the Knights.

The eight teams with the most power points in each section at the conclusion of this weekend’s action will qualify for the playoffs, which commence with first-round games next weekend at the site of the higher seed.

The semifinals will be contested on the weekend of Nov. 18-19, also at the higher seed, while the public school sectional finals and non-public school group championships will be played Dec. 2-4 at neutral sites to be determined.

The sectional finals will be contested at MetLife Stadium (10 games on Dec. 2-4), at Rutgers University’s High Point Solutions Stadium (four games on Dec. 10), at Kean University’s Alumni Stadium (four games on Dec. 10) and at Rowan University’s Richard Wackar Stadium (five games on Dec. 2-4).

The NJSIAA’s power point ranking system is predicated upon the sum total of the best seven of a team’s eight completed games at the time of the state cutoff date, which is Saturday night.

Piscataway and New Brunswick have also unofficially qualified in Central Group V, while Carteret and South Plainfield have unofficially qualified in Central Group III.

Sayreville, Colonia, Woodbridge and J.F. Kennedy have unofficially qualified in North 2 Group IV.

St. Joseph has secured the No. 8 seed in Non-Public Group IV and will play at either Paramus Catholic or Bergen Catholic, depending on how the NJSIAA interprets a convoluted power point ruling as it pertains to those North Jersey Super Conference powers.

As the No. 7 seed in Non-Pubic Group III, Bishop Ahr will make its 22nd postseason appearance, playing a first-round game at DePaul.

Piscataway locked up the No. 2 seed in the section with a 52-13 win over Edison on Friday night. The victory knocked the Eagles out of playoff contention while simultaneously securing for New Brunswick a postseason berth.

New Brunswick, the No. 8 seed, will unofficially face top-seeded Manalapan, which rallied from a 10-0 deficit for a 21-10 victory over Piscataway last weekend. The Chiefs will host a first-round game against No. 7 seed Hunterdon Central.

Sayreville appears to have qualified as the No. 5 seed in its section and will likely play a first-round game at Phillipsburg.

Colonia appears to be the No. 6 seed in its section and will likely play a first-round game at Summit or Middletown North, whose seed will be determined by residual points. Woodbridge appears to be the No. 7 seed in the same section and will play either Summit or Middletown North.

J.F. Kennedy is unofficially the No. 8 seed in its section and will play at Middletown South.

South Plainfield appears to have secured a first-round home game in its section. The Tigers could be seeded as high as third, depending on residual points.

Carteret, also depending on residual points, could be seeded seventh or eighth in its section.

Highland Park could be the 13th GMC school to qualify for the playoffs.

The Owls (4-4) entered this weekend’s action with 56 power points, the eighth most in Central Group I and one less than a 2-6 Keansburg team it defeated 33-20 earlier this season. Highland Park needed Florence to lose to New Egypt, which happened on Friday night, to keep its postseason hopes alive. The Owls’ playoff hopes may hinge on residual points. Keansburg can pick up residual points on Saturday with a South River win over Dunellen and with a Sussex Tech win over Morris Catholic. The Owls can pick up residual points from whoever wins the South River at Dunellen game.

Despite playing without star QB, Woodbridge football rallies for win

by WoodbridgeFootball.com / MyCentralJersey.com / NJ.com / TAPinto.net on 11/04/16

, @GregTufaro 10:50 p.m. EDT November 4, 2016



Quassim Glover, one of the Greater Middlesex Conference’s leading receivers, was thrust into the role of quarterback with a season-ending injury to starter Donovan Tabon, who was unable to play in the Woodbridge High School football team’s 28-14 victory over North Brunswick on Friday night.

With the win, Woodbridge unofficially secured the No. 7 seed for the North 2 Group IV playoffs and will play a first-round game at Middletown North next weekend.

The NJSIAA will announce official playoff pairings on Sunday. The eight teams with the most power points in each section at the conclusion of this weekend’s action will qualify for the playoffs, which commence with first-round games next weekend at the site of the higher seed.

Glover completed a scoring strike to Darin Tabon to help the Barrons (5-4) take a 14-7 lead. Keshaun Henry scored earlier on a 50-yard screen pass to help Woodbridge erase a 7-0 deficit.

After the Raiders (1-7) forged a 14-14 tie, Chance Modica returned a fumble for a touchdown with 3:49 remaining in the third quarter, giving the Barrons a 21-14 lead they would not relinquish.

Messiah Daniels closed out the scoring for Woodbridge on the receiving end of a 60-yard bubble screen from Henry.

“It’s very bad,” Woodbridge head coach Kevin Coleman said of the Barrons having to enter the playoffs without the services of Donovan Tabon, who has a separated shoulder. “He was just getting very good. He makes us more dynamic.”

The Barrons could have padded their lead but failed to post any points after driving to the North Brunswick 1 yard line, from where Woodbridge had a first-and-goal.

“We didn’t have a great outing (offensively), but we came away with the win,” Coleman said, noting the Raiders were well-prepared and physical. “I wanted us to be a little more sharp coming out of (the regular-season finale).”

Analysis and Prediction for the NJ2-G4 Sectional Playoffs

by WoodbridgeFootball.com / MyCentralJersey.com / NJ.com / TAPinto.net on 11/01/16

By Charles McDevitt WoodbridgeFootball.com  November 1, 2016  1545

First and foremost, the following report is not the final word. It is my Analysis and Prediction for the NJ2-G4 Sectional Playoffs

I ran the numbers and determined, there are 8 potential Power Points (PP) on the table for the Woodbridge Barrons. Reality, tells me only 2 PP are viable. JP Stevens defeating St Joseph is out (3 PP), and Perth Amboy defeating Colonia is out (3 PP). So, that leaves South Plainfield defeating Kennedy (1 PP), and Carteret defeating Rumsom-Fair Haven (1 PP). This scenario bumps the total for Woodbridge to 90 PP.

2 points you say! We are only 1 behind Colonia, so do we move up? The answer is no. The reason is Colonia will receive 3 PP from a South Plainfield win, and 1 PP from a Carteret win. Colonia ends with 93 PP staying ahead of the Barrons.

There will also be a shift in the top four in the NJ2-G4. Number 1 seed Summit has completed their 8 games, while Middletown South, Middletown North, and Phillipsburg have completed only 7. All of these teams should finish their 8th game with a win setting up the following berths for Playoff action.

NJSIAA – North Jersey 2 - Group 4 – Berths

1.       Middletown South (5-2)

2.       Middletown North (5-2)

3.       Phillipsburg (5-2) or Summit (7-1) (Residuals are the difference)

4.       Summit (7-1) or Phillipsburg (5-2) (Residuals are the difference)

5.       Sayreville (6-2)

6.       Colonia (4-4)

7.       Woodbridge (4-4)

8.       Kennedy (4-4) or North Hunterdon (4-4) (Residuals are the difference)

NJSIAA – North Jersey 2 - Group 4 – Round One

  •  Kennedy or North Hunterdon travels to Middletown South
  • Woodbridge travels to Middletown North
  • Colonia travels to Phillipsburg or Summit
  • Sayreville travels to Summit or Phillipsburg

Borden's GMC Football Week 9 Predictions

Marcus Borden, @bordenfb4ever5:57 p.m. EDT November 3, 2016

North Brunswick (1-6) No. 8 Woodbridge (4-4): North Brunswick is coming off its first win of the season, 13-6 over Perth Amboy. Freshman running back Myles Bailey rushed for 145 yards and two scores while sophomore quarterback Chich Petrillo added 66 rushing yards of his own to lead the youthful Raiders to victory. They will play a regional crossover possibly against Edison or Marlboro.

Woodbridge (88) is currently in the seventh position in North 2 Group IV. All teams in the top eight have played eight games except Phillipsburg (99), and both Middletowns: North (104) and South (114). Should they all win, Woodbridge plays Middletown South at the Swamp. Either way they are on the road no matter who ends up number two. PICK: Woodbridge.

1. Old Bridge (4-2-1):
Old Bridge suffered its second out of conference defeat at the hands of Jackson Memorial 27-13. They currently sit in the fifth spot for a Central Group V playoff spot. Next: Sayreville, Friday, 7 p.m.

2. Piscataway (5-2): Piscataway could not hang on to a 10-0 lead in the third quarter of the Rutgers football showcase and eventually lost to Manalapan 21-10 at High Point Solutions stadium. Currently third in Central Group V, they can secure the second seed with a win on Friday. Next: Edison, Friday, 7 p.m.

3. South Brunswick (5-2): The Vikings defeated Brick Memorial 34-14 and currently hold the sixth position in Central Group V and can be either the fourth or fifth seed depending on the outcome of the Old Bridge game. Next: at Monroe, Friday, 7 p.m.

4. Sayreville (6-2): The Bombers defeated Neptune 35-6 and look to be the fifth seed in North 2 Group IV. They will either play Colonia or Woodbridge in the first round of the playoffs depending on residual points. Their game against Old Bridge only counts in the division standings. Next: at Old Bridge, Friday, 7 p.m.

5. St. Joes (8-0): The Falcons held on for a 14-7 win versus Carteret to win the White Division title. They look to be the eighth seed in the Non-Public Group IV section and will have to travel to number one seed Paramus Catholic. Next: J.P. Stevens, Saturday, 1 p.m.

6. South Plainfield (5-2): Was idle. Currently in the sixth spot of Central Group III, they could go as high as fifth should Carteret lose to Rumson Fair-Haven. It will come down to residual points. Next: at Colonia, Friday, 7 p.m.

7. Carteret (5-2): The Ramblers lost a hard-fought battle with St. Joseph 14-7 for the White Division championship. They will need to regroup fast as they currently are fifth in Central Group III and can win a home playoff game should they defeat current seventh seed Rumson Fair-Haven this weekend. Next: at Rumson Fair-Haven, Friday, 7 p.m.

8. Woodbridge (4-4): The Barrons are currently seventh in Central Group IV after beating J.P. Stevens 44-0. They will likely travel to Middletown playing either North or South depending on the outcomes of this week’s games. Next: Perth Amboy, Friday, 7 p.m

9. Bishop Ahr (6-2): The Trojans defeated a tough Asbury Park team 20-7. They will be the seventh seed in Non-Public Group III and will travel to play DePaul in the first round of the playoffs the weekend of Nov. 11-12. Next: at Middlesex, Saturday, 1 p.m.

10. New Brunswick (3-5): The Zebras look to have secured the eighth seed in Central Group V with their 32-20 over Howell. An Edison upset of Piscataway could vault the Eagles past New Brunswick depending on residuals. Next: at East Brunswick, Friday, 1 p.m.

Keshaun “Scooby” Henry set three single-game records for the storied Woodbridge High School football program in the Barrons’ impressive 52-20 victory over crosstown rival J.F. Kennedy on Friday night.

Henry set new standards at the high school for touchdowns (six), points (40 including four conversion points) and touchdown receptions (four), according to Woodbridge High School sports historian Nick Sardone.

Henry’s six touchdowns – which included a scoring run and kickoff return – shattered a 61-year old record which the late Lee Roy Alexander previously set in a game against New Brunswick on Nov. 12, 1955.

Henry had just nine touches in the entire game. He caught four passes for 130 yards, carried five times for 22 yards and returned a kickoff 81 yards for 233 all-purpose yards.

Quarterback Donovan Tabon tied the single-game school record of five touchdowns passes, which Kyle Anderson posted in an Oct. 22, 2011 game against Monroe. Tabon completed 9 of 11 passes for 261 yards.
      
A person who feels appreciated 
will always do more than what is expected.
