Five Key Points

1. Junior tight end Luke Ungar (6-4, 220) and senior lineman Will Smart (6-4, 255) are the face of this team.  Both are hot prospects and getting attention of some big time college coaches.  Ungar is a mismatch for every defense he faces and Smart is a wrecking machine on both sides of the ball in the trenches.
2.Senior QB Jake Kopeld (6-2, 185) is poised to have a breakout season himself.  He’s a smart QB who can read defenses, throw on a dime and scramble for a first down.  With receivers Ungar, Greg Goetz and Michael Jarmolowich he’ll likely have big stats in all of the passing categories this fall.
3. Sophomore runningback Gary Lewis (5-10, 175) will make defenses pay for stacking defenders on Ungar.  Lewis is very elusive and if he gets two steps of daylight, he’s gone.
4.  After several years playing the Big Bergen Parochial’s, Delby schedule switches to one that has some old familiar Morris-Sussex foes on it along with some other traditionally competitive publics on it.
5. Delby should do well against this schedule but their starters will not be getting any rest so staying healthy is going to be the trick.  Somerville, Pope John and Seton Hall are all very good Group 3 schools so they’ll be looking for the cache of Power Points that a victory over the Group 4 Green Wave will bring.  Teams like Morristown and Morris Knolls can be booby trap games too.  No matter what their record, cross-town rival Motown always plays Delby intensely.  And Morris Knoll’s can be difficult to prepare for because they run a unique read-option Veer offense that requires extra focus.
