The Skinny & Prediction

On August 2nd, Hopatcong lost beloved assistant coach John Marx.  Marx was a charismatic guy who beloved by the Chief’s players.  His loss hit the team hard and his memory is very much alive within the team.

This team has six seniors that bring a lot of leadership to the team.  There are going to be a lot of younger guys stepping up in big roles and they seem to be ready for the challenge.

Hopatcong’s schedule is going to be relentless with just about every opponent being a preseason favorite to make the playoffs.  The good news is each win will likely carry a lot of Power Points for the Chief’s which will help their postseason hopes.  The better news for the Chief’s is their regular season schedule is going to be tougher than the playoffs.  So if they get a bid to the Second Season, they’ll surely be battle tested.
