Coach's Quote

"We have an experienced senior class, who are also talented. Most have played varsity since sophomore year. The biggest concern is depth, we have solid hard working underclassmen, and they will need to step up and give us depth across the board. "

The Take

The Marinello brothers are the top playmakers in this division and give the Crimson that score-on-any-down threat that is hard to defend against.  Lebovitz is the kind of guy that sets the tone for the team and will help the team raise their game against formidable opponents.  Opening up with Whippany Park will be a huge test as they'll likely be their toughest opponent.  But things don't get drastically easier as their prep school schedule has some formidable opponents that are used to battling it out with the Red and White.  If you are a Crimson fan, don't make plans till late December because this team has the firepower to make noise in the Second Season.
