The Skinny & Prediction

  • Coach Lorusso is a muti-time state championship coach who’s been part of some of North Jersey’s most successful programs including Union, Lenape Valley, Summit and Pequannock.  Now in his 18th year at Roxbury, he’s racking up the milestone wins.
  • Junior QB Lucas Spitzer has a cannon of an arm and at 6-4, 195-pounds, he’ll allow the Gaels to open of their offense.  Spitzer is poised to have a strong season.
  • Roxbury’s schedule is loaded with opponents with high flying offenses.  Sparta, Par Hills, Motown, Randolph and Mount Olive all like to spread the field to score fast and often.  Expect Coach Lorusso to slow down those teams with long, clock eating drives.  Lorusso’s been around the block so he can play chess with anyone.
  • Getting through the regular season won’t be easy for the Gaels.  But if they do manage to find themselves in the postseason, they’ll likely have to face the likes of Old Tappan, Wayne Hills, Phillipsburg and Randolph.  But you can ask any coach in Morris-Sussex and they will tell you that you can never count Roxbury out.
