The Coach

To get access to all of the photos from our Mendham camp visit click HERE.

Name: Chris Kubik
Skinny: Coach Kubik did his playing days in Clifton. As a coach, he did stints in Verona, Whippany Park and New Brunswick where he was part of three state championship teams. Since taking over as head coach of the Dodgers in 2007, Kubik has won five state titles (2010, 2011, 2012, 2015 and 2016), making him the winningest coach in Morris-Sussex during that time frame.
2016 Record: 12-0

The Players

Franchise Player: You can go to Pascarella Bros Sandwich Shoppe in Morristown or their Delicatessen in Chatham (which you should do because their Italian treats are insanely fresh and delicious) and ask a random patron who the Franchise Player for Madison is and they will tell you junior RB Matty Mulcahy. Everyone knows about Mulcahy. This kid has already carved out a tremendous legacy at Madison High School and his career is only at the midway point.
Hottest Selling Jersey: Last season Coach Kubik took a JV QB no one knew about in Mike Kearney and turned him into the Morris Sussex Sports Player of the Year. This year’s QB/DB Ryan Schmitz was one of the defensive stars on the team last season so expect him to be a dynamo in Kubik’s offense.
All Unruly Watch: When you go to games key in on senior RB/LB Brian Bradley. Defensively he’s always one of the first people in on the tackle. Offensively, he’ll account for 700-yards and 10 touchdowns rushing at a minimum.
Under the Radar: Senior TE/LB Brian Harris will be one of those players opposing coaches rewind over and over in the film room and scream, “Who is supposed to have this guy!”.
Benching the Weight Room: The families of senior linemen Paul Links and Trevor Jasen had to go in on a COSTCO account together to afford the food bill it takes to feed these behemoths. When you see how these two throw opposing linemen side by side, you’ll understand the amount of calories it must take to keep these bodies operating.
Throwback: Senior SE/OLB Santi Quintero is one of those players that could’ve played in any era. He’s a tough-as-nails player who shows up three hours before games in his full uniform ready to play.

There are little babies in Madison who’s first word is “Dodgers” and there are little kids who dress up as coach Chris Kubik in a maroon windbreaker and a headset on Halloween. Madison hasn’t lost a game going on three years now so I am not going to be the one who predicts anything but the continuation of the streak. I will say that I believe this season mimics last season with Lenape Valley being the one who gives them the most grief. I also believe the state title will have to go through the Patriots again.
