At Morristown the bulldozers on the line pressure quarterbacks and fast-moving wrecking crews in the secondary make the plays. They knock passes down, pick them off–assault the ball on every play. Just ask West Morris Central. Possibly one of the toughest offenses in the conference went scoreless against the Colonials (3-0, Colonials) in the regular season. Coach Hull says about his team, “they come to practice ready to work, they go to games ready to fight.”
Returning QB Dallas McCall is back at the helm, ready to throw to returning receivers Ricky Lorenzo and Jordan Powell, and hand-off to workhorse Tre’ Gwyn (5’9, 218). Alexis Villegas will anchor the o-line.
Linebacker Tre’ Gwyn and defensive backs Ricky Lorenzo and Jordan Powell will be making plays on receivers and shutting down any hopes of a passing game. Super-star Ethan Bolson who kicked a stunning 47-yard field goal last year will be back to do it again.
Looking back/Looking ahead
Morristown lost 13-7 in overtime in the state quarterfinals to a tough West Morris Central team. In the regular season, the Colonials beat Central, and eventual state-finalist Mendham. This is a defensive-minded team that shows up hard in every series with a long roster of returning superstars. Last year, they lost to Roxbury and Randolph. Don’t expect them to lose again.
Coach Hull’s Words
“Morristown has had a phenomenal pre-season in the weight room with outstanding attendance. Leaders have stepped up including Powell, Villegas, Cody Heaton, and DE/C Anton Buchner, who is banged up but should return for the start of the season. They’re a tough, hard-nosed team…what more could a coach ask for?”
