The 2016 All Unruly 1st Team

1st Team Captain

Donato Casolaro might just be the most athletic player in Morris Sussex.  The senior QB threw for over 2,000 yards and 19 TDs, rushed for 700 yards and 10 TDs, and was a playmaker on defense.  But the way Casolaro kept his team focused in 2016 is why he is the captain of the 1st Team.  Every week he took different groups of players before games to keep a cohesive unit.  His dedication to his team got him 1-point from making it to MetLife (photo by Lisa Mita Photography).

1st Team Captain:  Donato Casolaro – Hanover Park (Senior)
