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.

This core group of seniors has been starting since their sophomore season, and even then these guys were total gamers.  Now they are bigger, stronger and faster and everyone in this division knows they are the team to beat.  To complicate things even more for opponents is they’ll have to deal with 6-5, 230-pound TE/DE Sean Cooper who blocked three punts and two extra points last year (who does that!), and tackles everything in sight.  Cooper is a legit problem for teams on both sides of the ball.  Prediction:  This team is poised to win this division.  However, their schedule is loaded with booby traps but if the Pats stay healthy, this will be their year.
