From the Coach

What This Team Does Better than Anybody:  Simply put, they do not complain. Already this year they have been given a handful of situations that they could have complained about. Instead when they received their opportunity to play the only thing that I heard was excitement. When the season was reinstated on Tuesday the 15th they were at the field at 6pm on the 16th to receive helmets and then practice.

Biggest Surprise of the Off-season:  This winter the players did an excellent job in the weight room. We had about 20 kids in there daily and those who weren’t able to be there it was because were playing other winter sports. I was very impressed by the way the players pushed each other and competed with one another.

Team Goal:  Continue building off of the momentum that we had last year.  Focus on one game at a time and stick together throughout the season.  Represent the Ivy White division in this year’s Ivy league playoffs.

George Muha’s Take

George Muha’s Take is sponsored by Parisi Speed School of Morristown. Reach out to Parisi today to get bigger, faster and stronger because champions are made in the off-season.

As far as I am concerned, Dover already went 12-0 and won a sectional championship this year the way the students advocated for themselves to have their season reinstated.  And the MVP goes to superintendent James McLaughlin and the school board for deciding to over-rule their earlier decision to shelve school activities and athletics for the fall.  Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get back to football.  Second year coach Justin Hartman looks to build on the momentum he started in 2019.  The former Tiger QB (Class of 2009), was able to put the breaks on a losing streak that spanned three years and is coming into 2020 with on a two-game win streak.  Prediction:  I love this schedule for Dover this year as Hartman builds this program to eventually compete with the Group 2 powerhouses like they use to (which trust me, he will).  I predict a winning season for the 2020 Tigers.
