Charlie Whalen #50

Junior LT - Colts Neck HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

 

Charlie is a monster! A kid with this kind of size and passion for the game is what every offensive coach wants. Charlie imposes his will on the defense and creates massive wholes for the running back. There was a couple plays throughout the season where Charlie nearly blocked the defender into me - and I am on the sideline! This just goes to show that he takes pride in his job. If the Colts Neck offense continues to do well this season, you will definitely see Charlie with many awards when the season is over.

Gavin Carr #88

Sophomore WR/TE - Howell HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Keep an eye out for Gavin going forward... Howell Football was full of senior talent this past season. Gavin was a rare sophomore that contributed heavily to the team. Looking at Gavin, it is crazy to think he is only a sophomore. He was extremely solid for Howell and is following in the footsteps of one of the best tight ends in the Shore Conference. I expect Gavin to be used heavily next season. It is safe to say that this past season was just a preview of what is to come. Keep an eye out!

Eric Loureiro #27

Junior DE - Colts Neck HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Eric is a beast. He is built like a rock and is very athletic for a defensive end. As you'll see in his highlights, he has some serious speed for someone at his size and will make the ball carrier pay for running his way. He helped bring the energy to every game and this is something every team needs to get through tough opponents. Eric has been making big contributions in varsity football since he was only a sophomore. As Colts Neck comes back next year, you can expect Eric to play a vital role in stopping some big opponents next season. He is going to have a big senior year  due to his work ethic, experience and passion for the game.

Anthony Tropeano #42

Junior LB/FB - Marlboro HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Anthony is going to have a big senior season. He went both ways for Marlboro as a junior and you can expect his role to only increase going into his senior year. I watched him play numerous games with an injured shoulder. His toughness was on total display in Marlboro's playoff win against Washington Township. Even while playing with an injury, he remained a force on the field coming up with the game-clinching interception in one of the biggest wins in program history. Sky is the limit this season for Anthony as he will come back healthy and even stronger than the last! The Marlboro Defense should be one of the best in the Shore again next season and Anthony will play a major part in it.

Egan Nelms #3

Junior QB - Howell HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Egan knows how to throw the football! I watched Egan have an unbelievable game against Wall this past season throwing the ball. As you'll see in the highlights, he throws a tight spiral and eludes pressure with the thought of finding a receiver open downfield. He was able to come up big throughout the season as he spread the wealth to his receivers in multiple games. I expect the Howell offense to lean on Egan heavily next season as he has proved that when he is feeling it, you cannot stop him. Egan has all the potential to have a big senior season and I am excited to watch it unfold.

Matt Celli #8

Senior WR/DB - Colts Neck HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Matt is a physical beast. He was easily one of the biggest WR/DB in the entire Shore Conference and maybe even the state of NJ! He shows great athleticism and was an extremely consistent player for Colts Neck this past season. Matt and the rest of the Colts Neck secondary helped guide his team to low-scoring wins and a share of the division title. One of the biggest things you'll notice about Matt is his calm demeanor - he does not flinch. Congratulations and best of luck to Matt as he has committed to playing college football at Saint Anselm College. Big things to come!

James Bertan #45

Sophomore LB - Colts Neck HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

James is only a sophomore yet he made huge contributions to one of the best defenses in the entire Shore Conference. I was completely unaware that James was a sophomore throughout most of the season because he flew around like he had as much experience as the seniors! He is poised to have a dominant junior year this upcoming season. While Colts Neck is not losing many starters, they are losing some key defensive players; I expect James to help fill the role of the players lost to graduation. Expect a huge year upcoming from James!

White.png

Sam Mele #5

Senior LB - Howell HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

It was a pleasure watching Sam all season. He is easily the most energetic player that I watched all year and he backs up that energy in his play! His energy rubs off on his teammates and it was evident that he was a big part of the Howell Football Team this past season. The Howell Defense will surely miss his presence next season. His leadership and passion for the game will take him far during his college career! I am excited to see where Sam ends up he has all the characteristics to have a terrific college career.

Dominic Beninato #19

Junior QB/DB - Colts Neck HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Dom was a major part in Colts Neck success this past season. He took over at QB for a former 4 year starter and did not disappoint! He is another great athlete and multi-sport athlete that lead his team all season. It was easy to see Dom’s confidence grow week-by-week. Dom was extremely dependable and gave his chance to win in every game they played. He is coming back next year along with nearly the entire offense. I expect Dom to have a huge senior season and I wouldn’t be surprised if it ends with many awards!

White.png

Ethan Sloane #6

Junior WR/DB - Colts Neck HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Ethan has terrific athleticism and is all over the field. He was an extremely consistent player for Colts Neck this past season. I watched him make numerous touchdown-saving tackles and key pass breakups/interceptions in key moments. He will be a huge part in Colts Neck's success this upcoming season due to his versatility on the field. Ethan's athleticism will surely allow him to excel at the collegiate level in the future. I expect Ethan to have a huge senior season along with the rest of the Colts Neck Football Team!

Nick Scaff #9

Junior DB - Marlboro HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Nick had a great season for Marlboro this past year. He was a key contributor to a stout Marlboro defense that gave the Mustangs a chance to win every in almost every game. Nick had a massive game against Washington Township with 2 interceptions to help guide Marlboro to one of the biggest wins in program history. He will be returning next season along with a number of other key contributors which puts Marlboro right back into the playoff mix. Do not be surprised if you hear Nick's name mentioned as one of the best defensive backs in the Shore next year!

White.png

Dom Marino #13

Senior WR/DB - Howell HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Dom was one of the best defensive backs that I followed this year. He is an extremely dependable player and was a do-it-all athlete for Howell. Overall, he has a lot of unlocked potential and he will be a steal for whatever college grabs him! As you'll see in his highlights, he had some huge turnovers for Howell and was a key contributor to not just the defense but the entire team. I look forward to seeing where Dom ends up next!

White.png

Eoin Fitzpatrick #9

Senior LB - Colts Neck HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Eoin had a great senior season for Colts Neck at line backer. I could have swore he had a huge hit in every game - you definitely do not want to get in his way! Colts Neck will surely miss his presence next season. Not only was Eoin a great athlete for Colts Neck but he also brought the energy to every game. He leaves behind a great Colts Neck team that will surely be in the running for a state sectional title next year.

White.png

Jaxson Campese #66

Junior C - Howell HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Jaxson played a big role in Howell's offensive success this past season. The Howell offense was extremely talented and were very exciting to watch - Jaxson was one of the guys enabling the Howell skill players to have a great year. I was quick to notice how business oriented Jaxson is. He is simply a team player that is not satisfied until his team is in the end zone. I am expecting Jaxson to play a big role as a leader next year as Howell will be losing numerous key contributors on offense. 

White.png

Charles Davison #55

Junior DT/RG - Point Pleasant Boro HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Charles is a big kid that takes his game very seriously. You can see how passionate he is for the game during every drive. One of the best things I saw watching Charles was his team attitude as he'd sprint full speed to meet whoever had just scored a touchdown to celebrate. Charles played a huge role on both sides of the ball for one of the best teams in the Shore this past season; his role is only going to grow even more going into his senior year. Expect Charles to lead Point Boro back into the state playoffs this upcoming season - it will be fun to watch.

White.png

Kevin Maloney #1

Junior WR - Howell HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Kevin has been one of the best wide receivers in the Shore Conference since he was only a sophomore and his highlights surely back that up. It seemed like he came up with a huge play in every game that I saw Howell play. He is extremely good with his hands and seems to break away from defenders in big strides. It seems like his play elevates when he's close to the end zone as he is a touchdown machine! The Howell offense will rely on him heavily next season as he is poised for a dominant senior year.

White.png

Jake Croce #40

Junior RB/LB - Point Pleasant Boro HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Jake is a phenomenal athlete. Looking at him you would think that he's a power-back but in reality he has terrific elusiveness. When you look at his high school career thus far, it makes you wonder how colleges are not taking him more seriously - this is someone who has been scoring touchdowns on varsity since he was a freshman! I had a lot of fun watching Jake and the Point Pleasant Boro Football Team this past season. They definitely know how to put the ball in the endzone! Jake is going to have an absolutely dominant senior season without a doubt.

White.png

Seven Miller #7

Senior DE/LB - Howell HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Seven brought the energy this season for the Howell Rebels! He is a lot of fun to watch as he flies around all over the place on defense. He came up with a huge forced fumble in the season-opener against Central Regional which helped put the momentum on Howell's side for nearly the whole game. One thing college coaches are going to love about Seven is his pursuit of the football regardless of where he is on the field - I watched him make numerous tackles after chasing the ball carrier from the other side of the field. He has a very bright future ahead and I would not be surprised if he is used at multiple positions in college. The Howell defense will definitely miss his presence next season.

White.png

Ryan Mendes #7

Senior WR/LB - Marlboro HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Ryan is a great football player and he follows that up with great leadership on the field. I watched him make huge plays for his team all year. He was a huge reason why Marlboro was able to get a comeback win in the state playoffs as he came up with big play after big play. He is a huge kid that is a nightmare for opposing coaches on offense and defense. Not only is he a big kid but he is very athletic as you'll see in his tape! Ryan's size is going to quickly give him the ability to play early in his college career I'm sure.

White.png

Will Surdez #32

Senior LB/WR/RB - Colts Neck HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Will is the ultimate athlete. He plays football, basketball and volleyball. Not only does he play three varsity sports, but he is dominant in every one! This isn't that surprising watching him play football since he can play practically every position on the field. He was one of the best linebackers in all of the Shore Conference and is not only a great athlete, but also a great leader. Whatever college is able to snag Will is going to be making a great decision for their program. I would not be surprised if he plays multiple sports in college either!

White.png

Matt Cassidy #22

Junior RB/LB - Marlboro HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

If you want to talk about a tough football player, just go to one Marlboro Football Game and Matt will quickly show you. He helped guide his team to one of the best seasons in program history as only a junior. I watched him run people over at running back and then saw him follow it up as a consistent missile on defense. College coaches need to wake up and start paying attention because his tape is second to none! The Marlboro Football Team is without a doubt going to be back in force next season and I'm excited to see where they take it. Expect a record-breaking senior season from Matt next year.

White.png

Jack Gartenstein #18

Senior QB/WR - Howell HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Jack is an outstanding do-it-all athlete. I watched him guide his team all season. Jack is a threat wherever he's put on the field. He is a huge kid that can beat you with his arm or with his size. It did not take long for me to notice how many of his teammates looked up to him as he was a key leader for his team. Jack is another athlete that surely has the chance to play as a freshman in college due to his size, experience and the versatility in his game.

White.png

Damien Padilla #9

Senior TE/DE Howell HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

I got a chance to watch a true beast all season! Damien is a huge kid who was all over the field for his team. The Howell offense was filled with talent and Damien seemed to come up with huge plays for his team consistently. He is a nightmare to cover for defenses as you can see in the highlights - he can jump over you or run through you! Damien is also a very talented basketball player and I look forward to watching him finish off his senior year on the court. Expect Damien to get playing time very early during his college career.

White.png

Jack Lefkowitz #44

Sophomore FB Colts Neck HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

I think that everyone that doesn't know Jack personally and watches him play, must think that you're lying when you say he's only a sophomore! I saw Jack bring the energy to every game and help set the tone in major games for Colts Neck this season. He was the guiding blocker for one of the best running backs in the shore and his role for Colts Neck is only going to grow greater as he gets older! He is definitely someone to look out for going into next season.

White.png

Chris Scully #21

Junior RB Colts Neck HS Football 2022

Season Highlight Video

Had the pleasure of covering one of the best running backs in the Shore Conference (NJ) this season, Colts Neck High School's Chris Scully! Chris piled on the awards this season and helped guide his team to a share of the division title and playoff berth. One thing I noticed about Chris that stood out to me was how he was so calm and collected; his demeanor does not change whether he has a 2 yard run or a touchdown! He is poised for a huge senior season and will surely be on many college radars this offseason.
