The Skinny & Prediction

  • If you are a Morris Hills season ticket holder, you are in for a treat this season.  It appears the stars are all aligning again with a mixture of talent, veteran leadership and varsity experience.  The last time that happened was four years ago and the Red Knights came away with a state title.  This group of seniors were freshman when they witnessed that happen so they know what it takes to go the distance.
  • The big problem for every opponent is going to be fullback Jeremy Busel.  He’s a 6, 240-pound smash-mouth football player that likes to put his head down and run over people.  The scary part about Busel is he’s very agile on his feet and has very soft hands so he’s a threat in the passing game too.
  • Coach Mike Sabo has quietly become won of the winningest coaches in Morris-Sussex during the last 16 years.  He averages over six wins a season and that is against one of the hardest schedules among all of the Super Conference divisions.  He’s been to two state finals and as one ring to his name.
  • Every opponent on MoHill’s schedule knows they are going to be a force to reckoned with.  The late season games against Randolph and Sparta will surely be in front of packed crowds.
  • When Coach Sabo made is first trip to the state final, MoHills was a Group 2 school.  Four years ago, they were a Group 3 school when they took the chip.  Now they are a Group 4 school.  That means bigger opponents.  But if the Knights can stay healthy, they’ll be able to hang with the big boys of this section.
