CHAMPIONSHIP SEASONS


The Woodbridge Barrons have won 9 State Championship Titles in their 90 year history!  They have compiled an overall record of  436 - 344 - 40, with a winning percentage of .559, and have qualified for 14 NJSIAA State Playoff appearances compiling a playoff record of  10 - 11 (Last updated September 5, 2013). 

The Barrons have won or shared 12 Conference / Divisional Titles in 1939, 1954, 1955, 1957, 1958, 1960, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1983, 1986 and 1992.

The 1st State Championship won by the Woodbridge Barrons was in 1930.  Under the leadership of Head Coach Heinie Benkert, the Team registered a 9 - 0 season record.  It was the 1st and only undefeated, untied season in Barron’s history!




















The 2nd and 3rd State Championships were registered back to back!  In 1938 and 1939, Head Coach Nick Priscoe guided the Barrons to a 7 - 1 season record ('38), and a  5 - 2 - 2 season record ('39).  




















Twenty-one years later, Coach Priscoe led his 1960 Team to the 4th State Championship, registering a 2nd undefeated season with an  8 - 0 - 1 record!



















In 1969, the Woodbridge Barrons registered their 3rd undefeated season, with a record of  8 - 0 - 1.  Despite this accomplishment, the NJSIAA Championship Committee awarded the 1969 State Title to Westfield and Union as co-champions. The 1969 Team did enjoy the recognition of being ranked "6th" in the final statewide poll, by the Newark Evening News that year! From 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.

The 5th and 6th State Championship was also registered back to back!  In 1970 and 1971, Head Coach Sam Lupo led the Barrons to a  7 - 2 season record ('70), and a  7 - 2 record ('71).



















Frank Capraro, in his 8th campaign as the Barrons Head Coach, guided the 1980 Football Team to their 
7th State Championship with an  8 - 2 - 1 season record.























In 1993, amazingly in his one and only season as Head Coach, Frank Bender led his Barrons Team to the 8th State Championship, with an impressive 9 - 2 season record.






















In 1997, Head Coach William Nyers led his Woodbridge Barrons Team to a  9  -  2  season record, and to their 9th State Championship!





















2014 - The 91st Season, will bring with it the hope of another winning season,  another playoff berth, and the Football Programs 10th STATE CHAMPIONSHIP!  Go Barrons!
