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 High School’s recently renovated Nicholas A. Priscoe Stadium has been selected as the host site for MyCentralJersey.com Snapple Bowl XXIII, a charity all-star football game that has raised more than $530,000 for its beneficiaries.
Marcus Borden, the game’s founder and director, said he selected Woodbridge for the July 21, 2016 contest because he believes the school district and the township’s officials “are going to do everything and anything to make this a success in their own backyard.”
The event, which on July 17 raised a single-game record $50,000 for Children’s Specialized Hospital in Mountainside and the Edison-based Lakeview School, a program of the New Jersey Institute for Disabilities, pits the top recently graduated scholastic seniors from Middlesex and Union counties against one another.
“We are just thrilled to have this opportunity to host Snapple Bowl XXIII,” Woodbridge High School Athletics Director Joe Ward said. “We think it’s a wonderful event that provides funding for two great institutions. I think it’s great for Woodbridge High School and the Woodbridge community. I’m excited to have football players and cheerleaders from Middlesex County and Union County see the first-class facilities we have at Woodbridge and for us to be a part of the Snapple Bowl tradition.”
Woodbridge Township used $9.89 million in property-in-lieu of taxes (PILOT) funding to upgrade facilities for athletics and extracurricular activities district-wide including, but not limited to, the installation of synthetic turf football and baseball fields at J.F. Kennedy and Colonia high schools and a complete overhaul of Priscoe Stadium.
Improvements to the stadium, originally built in 1948, include the demolition of the white concrete home stands, which were replaced by red and black metal bleachers that reflect the school’s colors, a larger athletic trainer’s room, a revitalized coach’s office equipped with ceiling projectors and white boards, a beautified locker room, new public restrooms, wheelchair ramps for handicap access to the venue, a new press box and internet access.
Woodbridge Principal Glenn Lottmann said the district and the township will work together to ensure that accommodations for spectators, including parking and bleacher seating, will be more than adequate.
“Everyone wants to make a great event even better by hosting it,” Lottmann said. “Everyone is on board and wants the same thing. It’s such a great event, anytime you can get involved in something like that, you should jump at the opportunity.”
Borden said Woodbridge’s school spirit, which ranks among the best in Middlesex County, also factored into his decision to choose Priscoe Stadium as MyCentralJersey.com Snapple Bowl XXIII’s host.
The school’s mascot, Johnathon O'Halloran, a rising senior, won the inaugural Snapple Bowl Mascot Challenge on July 17 after raising an individual record $2,500-plus for the game’s beneficiaries and placing first in online voting with 8,620 of the more than 21,000 votes cast for the nine competing mascots.
Woodbridge and Colonia hosted Middlesex County All-Star practices in 2014 and 2015, respectively. Borden said the district’s generosity factored into his decision to select Woodbridge as a first-time host.
The game, which alternates being played at a Middlesex County and Union County venue annually, has previously been contested in Middlesex County at Sayreville, South Brunswick and East Brunswick high schools.
