The Coach

Name: Brian Bowers
Skinny: Bowers is very quietly one of the best coaches in Morris-Sussex every single year he’s been the coach of Delbarton (of which is in the decades now). For years when Delbarton was playing mostly Morris County public teams, he had to deal with these cross-country foes who geared up for his Green Wave more than any other team. Then he’d have to face some of the best teams in the state (and in some years, the country) in the playoffs. Now that Delby plays most of the big private powerhouses now, he’s facing top notch opponents week-in and week-out. Not many coaches have faced such a high level of competition as long as Bowers has. He’s a pro and for those of you who don’t think Delby can hang with this new schedule, you don’t know Bowers.
2016 Record: 4-6

The Players

Franchise Player: There are honestly several franchise players on this team but one guy that fills a lot of seats in Regan Stadium is senior RB/LB Cole Kreshpane (5’8″,195). He’s been a headache for opposing coaches since he arrived at Delbarton four years ago.
Hottest Selling Jersey: Sorry, it’s too late if you were hoping to get your Miles Leniw authentic jersey. You’re just going to have to write a #12 on a t-shirt with a marker because the stores are all backlogged with orders. The 6’2″, 200-pound senior QB is going to romp this season, trust me.
All Unruly Watch: A player who’s at the top of the All Unruly 1st Team watch list is senior TE/DL Trey Zgombic (6’2″, 220). Offensively he’s impossible to cover because he is so big. On the defensive side of the ball, teams cannot run plays to his side of the field because he is so disruptive.
Under the Radar: I wouldn’t necessarily say junior OL/DL Will Smart (6’3″, 250) exactly fits in this category. First, he’s too big to fit under the radar and second, everyone already knows this guy is good.
Benching the Weight Room: Senior Will Andersen (6-2, 280) has been delivering pancakes for three years. Right now he’s the top lineman prospect in Morris-Sussex. When you go to a Delby game, just key on #78 for ten plays. I guarantee you’ll say, “Whoa!”
Throwback: Senior RB/DB Anthony Siragusa (5-11, 185) definitely belongs playing in the leather helmet days. Beyond being tough as nails, which he is, Siragusa just makes plays every time he steps on the field. Now going into his 3rd year as a varsity player, he’s proved he can score offensively, defensively and in the return game…heck, the kid even returned a punt that HE blocked.

Delby is currently the most talented team in Morris County. The problem is they don’t play one team from Morris County. Instead, they play a schedule of big time privates, including 5 nationally ranked teams. They are also stuck in the Non-Public, Group 4 state playoff section so that means a state championship title would have to go through the New Jersey private power houses. But there is no reason to make other plans for Saturday afternoons because last season Delby did an excellent job hanging with the big boys ont this schedule. Now many of the starters from last season are back and they know what it takes to compete at this high level. With everyone in this division focused on the other big names, Delby can flying under radar which I predict will surprise a lot of teams.
