Twenty years from now two current football players from two separate teams in Morris Sussex will be in a business meeting and the topic will come up about where they grew up.  They will soon realize they both played football around the same time, but not in the same division.

“Madison was really good that year,” one will say.  “Yeah, so was Roxbury,” the other will respond.  “Boonton was good that year too.”  The banter will continue.  “Gabe, er, Gage Cabalar was a maniac that season,” the other will recall.  “Remember Sussex Tech had a beast of a runningback?  He was, like, 230 pounds and ran like a deer.”  “Yeah, what was his name?”

Meanwhile the other people around the conference table will be like are you guys going to have this geek-out session all afternoon or can we get back to business?  But this is what makes high school football like nothing else.  You can’t explain it to people on the outside.

It is with this in mind that we sum up the season with our 2015 All Unruly Awards.

Team Captain: Sonny Abramson – Pope John, Senior

Abramson was one of the all-time greats to come out of Morris Sussex and this year’s el capitan of the All Unruly Team. The four-year starter finished with over 7,400 yards-passing and 85 TDs.
PRO COMP: Andrew Luck
Madden Rating: AWR 99

Quarterback: Donato Casolaro – Hanover Park, Junior

Casolaro guided one of the most talented teams since 1990 to the semifinals of the state tourney. He passed for 2387 yards and 21 TDs and ran for another 627 yards and 13 TDs as a junior.
PRO COMP: Fran Tarkenton
Madden Rating: AGI 98

Quarterback: Gage Cabalar – Boonton, Senior

Gage is going to be remembered as one of the most legendary players to come out of Boonton High School. He ran for 1,282 yards and 14 TDs as he took the Bombers all the way to the semifinals with a 9-2 record.
PRO COMP: Doug Flutie
Madden Rating: ELU 98

Runningback: Shyhiem Outland – Sussex Tech, Senior

Outland rushed for over 100 yards nine times and for over 200 yards four times on his way to a 1,733-yard, 21-touchdown senior campaign. At 6-1, 225 pounds and with speed of a cheetah, Outland was terrifying to compete against, which is what helped him guide his Mustangs to their first playoff bid in school history.
PRO COMP: Bo Jackson
Madden Rating: CAR 98

Runningback: Berrell Neal – Pope John, Sophomore

As a sophomore Neal dazzled for nearly 1,400 yards and 19 TDs while leading the Johnnies to 7-3 record. He has the speed, agility and natural talent to make the moves but at 5-9, 200 pounds he also has no trouble running over a linebacker.
PRO COMP: Emmitt Smith
Madden Rating: JKM 98

Runningback: Chase Cramer – Newton, Sophomore

Cramer came on the scene like a bat out of hell with his 276-yard, 3-TD performance against MoBeard in Week 2. He seems to have an extra gear no one can shut down, and his 1,369 yards and 15-TDs for the season are among the top in the state.
PRO COMP: Devin Hester
Madden Rating: ELU 98

Fullback: Avery Sheruda – Jefferson, Senior

I don’t care that Sheruda made 106 tackles from the linebacker position, with size at 6 foot, 246 pounds, along with the speed and agility, I also want this kid carrying the ball for my team. My favorite Sheruda moment is when he leaped over a Hackettstown defensive back on his way to a big gain. They will be talking about that one for years.
PRO COMP: Larry Csonka
Madden Rating: TRK 98

Wide Receiver: Alex Lerman – Par Hills, Senior

When the Vikings needed a play everyone knew it would come from the 5-9, 170-pound Lerman, and time after time he delivered. Lerman is one of the hardest working and most improved players in Morris Sussex and he has the stats ( 816 receiving yards and 11 TDs) to prove it.
PRO COMP: Julian Edelman
Madden Rating: CTH 98

Wide Receiver – Rich Stecher – Wallkill Valley, Senior

When senior QB Marko Bakovic transferred to Walkill Valley, Stecher volunteered to step down from passer to receiver. The Bakovic-to-Stecher combo when on to connect 68 times for 1045 yards and 12 touchdowns.
PRO COMP: Marvin Harrison
Madden Rating: CIT 98

Wide Receiver: Tomasz Radomski – Hanover Park, Senior

This area has not seen  this kind of talent in a receiver since Butler’s Andrew Turzilli. At 6-2, 190 pounds, Radomski was dominant all season (58-982-10), and the main target of quarterback Donato Casolaro, who was in the Top 5 in the state for multiple passing stats.
PRO COMP: Brandon Marshal
Madden Rating: SPC 98

Tight End: Dean Gannett – Sparta, Senior

Gannett was one of the top tight ends in the state over the last two years. and leaves Sparta as their all-time leading receiver. He was a force on both sides of the ball but with 27 career-TDs he was lethal on O.
PRO COMP: Tony Gonzalez
Madden Rating: STR 98

Offensive Lineman: Sam Howson – Pope John, Senior

If the whole college thing doesn’t work out Howson can get a job as the cook at IHOP because nobody serves up more pancakes than this guy. There is no way this team rushed for 2,700 yards without him barreling over multiple defenders on every play.
PRO COMP: Eric Mangold
Madden Rating: IBL 99

Offensive Lineman: Rich Fritzky – Lenape Valley, Senior

For three years, Fritzky started for one of the deadliest running attacks in Morris Sussex. He is probably the best one-on-one blocker and a down-in-the-dirt player we just can’t get enough of.
Madden Rating: RBK 97

Offenisve Lineman: Connor Young – Roxbury, Senior

Young was the anchor of a dominant offense that produced 3,600 yards and 39 TDs. He was also a natural leader whose work ethic and attention to detail raised the standards of an entire team.
PRO COMP: Gary Zimmerman
Madden Rating: PBK 98

Offensive Lineman: Anthony Marino – Boonton, Senior

At guard Marino paved the way for this offense to rush for 3,200 yards and 38 TDs (no, that is not a misprint). He is one of the most technically sound blockers in Morris Sussex and epitomizes the phrase finish the drill.
PRO COMP: Bruce Matthews
Madden Rating: AWR 98

Offensive Lineman: Shane Horn – Madison, Senior

Horn was dominant from the first game of the season all the way to the state championships. His performance against Hanover Park, Mountain Lakes, Lenape Valley and Rutherford made some of the top defensive linemen in the state look tame.
PRO COMP: Kevin Mawae
Madden Rating: ACC 98

First Team Defense

No player brought more intensity to the gridiron this fall then Hanover Park linebacker Anthony Olivieri (photo by Lisa Mita).

No player brought more intensity to the gridiron than Hanover Park linebacker Anthony Olivieri (photo by Lisa Mita).

Defensive Lineman: Mike Aiello – Mountain Lakes, Senior

At 6-2, 260 pounds, and with the speed of a runningback, Aiello is the scariest defender in Morris Sussex. With 53 tackles, 9 sacks, 2 blocked kicks and several championship rings, Aillo is among the all-time greats to come out of Mountain Lakes.
PRO COMP: Mean Joe Greene
Madden Rating: SPD 98

Defensive Lineman: Dalyn Wade-Perry – Pope John, Junior

An offensive coordinator from a team that opposes Pope John nominated D-Wade. The coach explained Wade-Perry is just a pain to gameplan for. At 6-3, 290 pounds, and with power that is just not human, watching DWP play in high school is like watching Michael Jordan in a CYO basketball game.
PRO COMP: Dalyn Wade-Perry (it’s just a matter of time)
Madden Rating: STR 98

Defensive Lineman: Ryan Hill – Par Hills, Senior

Hill moves so fast his highlight reel looks like it’s on fast-forward. With 6 sacks, 3 caused-fumbles, 2 blocked- punts in 2015, and a state championship ring in 2014, they’ll be telling stories about this guy for years to come.
PRO COMP: Tony Siragusa
Madden Rating: PMW 98

Defenisve Lineman: Greg Cooper – Lenape Valley, Senior

Nobody, and I mean nobody, brings more passion to the game of football than Cooper. His 28 tackles and 12 sacks are records for LV, setting his legacy with the Patriots.
PRO COMP: The Ultimate Warrior
Madden Rating: TAK 98

Linebacker: Tommy Hunt – Kittatinny, Senior

Every week for the last two years Hunt was a dominating force for the Cougars. Despite being consistently double-teamed, he was a fierce player that was in on every tackle, and finished with 95 for the season.
PRO COMP: Mike Singletary
Madden Rating: AWR 98

Linebacker: Jared Salgado – Par Hills, Senior

Salgado leaves high school with a state championship ring and 392 tackles. Yes, 392 tackles! He’s also a leader on and off the field, and I predict he will be the youngest player inducted into the Par Hills HOF.
PRO COMP: Dick Butkus
Madden Rating: POW 99

Linebacker: Anthony Olivieri – Hanover Park, Senior

No one received more nominations than Olivieri. His senior campaign included 143 tackles, 24 for loss, 5 sacks, 4 forced-fumbles and 2 recovered-fumbles while taking his Hornets to the semifinals.
PRO COMP: Ray Lewis
Madden Rating: TAK 99

Linebacker: Quinn Sweeney – Boonton, Senior

Sweeney was the heart and sole of the Boonton defense and one of the most fearless and energetic players in Morris Sussex. His leadership was a key reason the Bombers held opponents to less than 9 points per game.
PRO COMP: Brian Urlacher
Madden Rating: SPD 98

Defensive Back: Tom Crooks – Pequannock, Senior

No team played with a defense as dominate as Pequannock. And one of the reasons for that domination was Crooks, who was the strongest, fastest and most ferocious player on the field in every game.
PRO COMP: Ronnie Lott
Madden Rating: STR 98

Defensive Back: Wayne Patterson – Pope John, Senior

Patterson was a lock-down defender through the 2015 season. Although he was forth on the team with tackles, his greatest achievement was shutting down every receiver he faced.
PRO COMP: Deion Sanders
Madden Rating: MCV 98

Defensive Back: Jo Jo Mobley – Madison, Senior

Mobley is probably the biggest playmaker in Morris Sussex. His Pick-6 in the state finals game at MetLife Stadium changed the momentum in Madison’s favor.
PRO COMP: Rod Woodson
Madden Rating: PRC 98

Defensive Back: Jake Spagnola – Mountain Lakes, Senior

Spagnola left it all on the field week after week. His senior-year stat line includes 43 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 fumble recoveries, 1 INT and 3 blocked kicks. Who the hell blocks THREE kicks?
PRO COMP: Champ Bailey
Madden Rating: PUR 98

First Team Specials


Whether on offense, defense, or special teams, no player was more versatile than Roxbury’s Craig Roumes (photo by Chris Chambers).

Kicker: Joe Mahal – Hackettstown, Senior

Mahal was a special teams phenom this season by going 4-5 on FG’s (longest 42) and 28-30 on extra points. He was also an assassin with his foot in the punting game by constantly pinning opposing teams with horrible field position, including a masterful 63-yard punt.
PRO COMP: Adam Vinatieri
Madden Rating: KPW 98

Punter: Dan Duffy – Pequannock, Senior

When a team is as successful as Pequannock, there is always a good specialist behind the scenes. No one pinned more defenses as far back as the Duffinator consistently was able to do.
PRO COMP: Reggie Roby
Madden Rating: KAC 98

Punt Returner: Craig Roumes – Roxbury, Senior

When you look up a definition of “throwback football player” a picture of Roumes pops up. This guy can play any position any day of the week, and was a dependable contributor to Roxbury’s season-long success.
PRO COMP: Jim Thorpe
Madden Rating: RET 98

Kickoff Returner: Andrew Sanders – Delbarton, Senior

No skill player has been more consistent over the last three years as Sanders. He capped his senior year with 1,000+ yards of offense and 12 TDs.
PRO COMP: LaDainian Tomlinson
Madden Rating: BCV 98

Utility Player: Danny Castiglia – Butler, Senior

Pound for pound Castiglia is probably the best all around skill player in Morris Sussex. In 2015 he had 145 touches (receiving and rushing) for 1,334-yards and 14 TD’s.
PRO COMP: Marshall Faulk
Madden Rating: AGI 99
