In addition, the other contributing players who should also be proud of the plays they have performed this season are captains Joe Lesho (LB/RB), Luis Pontier (OL/DL) and Jonathan Rengifo (WR/LB) and players Michael Bolwell (Jr.), Joe Emerson (WR/DB), Anthony Thomas (RB/LB), Dustin DeRado (WR/CB), Charlie Acanfora (OL/DL), Mark Dunn (OL/DL), Nico Failla (LB/WR), Mekhi Davis (RB/DB), Andrew Franco (LB) and Dylan Cortiana (OL/LB).
Athletic Director Ms. Giancaspro said, “This was a successful season for us. We are expected to compete for a playoff spot every year. With an undefeated league title, a playoff victory and being one game away from our goal of playing at MetLife Stadium for a chance to win a state championship, this season would be considered a success.”
“It’s absolutely incredible that we have made it this far as a team of great players. I can truly say that I’m proud of being captain,” stated Senior Luis Pontier.
