The Coach

Name: Kevin White
Skinny: Coach White has an impressive football background; his playing days were at Paramus Catholic for high school and Delaware for college. He did a coaching stint at his alma-mater and then St. Joe’s Montvale where he cut his teeth. For the last decade, he’s been at Kinnelon where he won a state title in 2012. White is still a young gun who is just scratching the surface on his legacy.
2016 Record: 6-4

The Players

Franchise Player: The guy that runs things for the Colts is senior LB Calvin “The Kripp Keeper” Krippner (6, 210). This guy is the Ray Lewis of Morris-Sussex and is poised to be one of the best defensive players in our region.
Hottest Selling Jersey: A guy who is extremely dynamic is DB Tim Elefonte (5-7, 155). Elefonte plays in the secondary like he’s on ice skates and attacks the ball the way they teach it in text books.
All Unruly Watch: A guy who I am very excited to see this season is linebacker Gannon Chiuchiolo (5-9, 195). The senior is ready to have a break out season on a defense happy team.
Under the Radar: CBs Craig Smith (5-10, 150) and Quinn Duffy (5-9, 160) along with sophomore Reilly Nelson (6-1, 185) will round out the outfield of the defense. Jacob LoCascio (5-6, 170) is an undersized defensive lineman has freakish speed that allows him to penetrate opposing team’s offensive backfields. Duffy, along with Nick Matthew (5-5, 160), are skill guys who will see the endzone frequently.
Benching the Weight Room: Joe Rymarz (5-10, 180) and junior Antoine Kasabriare (5-9, 170) are skill guys who have done a fantastic job packing on the muscle to help them be durable throughout the long season.
Throwback: Linebacker Phil Bonnano (5-10, 175) is in on every single play. He’d be the star linebacker on most other teams. But with Kripp and Chiuchiolo, he makes this linebacker crew one of the best in the area.

Defense wins football games and this team has one heck of a defense. That will come in handy, especially against this schedule. Getting to the playoffs likely requires five wins at the 8-game cutoff. Once they do that, then they have to face a VERY tough section with the likes of Pequannock, Newton, High Point and Westwood sitting there…all of whom are poised for a state championship runs themselves. However, Kinnelon can very well be one of those teams that sneaks up on everyone on their way to doing something very special this season.
