THE TAKE

Madison easily has one of the toughest schedules of any team in Morris-Sussex dealing with the likes of Morris Catholic, Hanover Park, Lenape Valley, and Verona.   The trick for the Dodgers will be filling in a lot of starting positions left vacant by graduation.  But never fear when Chris Kubik is running football operations. Ever since he took over as head coach in 2007, he has led Madison to an incredible amount of success, winning 5 sectional championships and 6 division titles.  If the Dodgers can navigate this schedule enough to land in the Season Season they'll be battle tested to compete.  And facing foes like Hanover Park, Verona and Caldwell in the regular season will only help them as those are the teams they'll likely get a second look at in the postseason.
