THE IRON HILLS SPORTS YEARS & OTHER WORKS
Several years ago, I hosted a site called Iron Hills Sports which covered that awesome conference. Those years laid the framework for what will eventually become Morris Sussex Football. My publishing resume includes stints with the local publications (Daily Record and Observer Tribune) and many technical works that have been produced in over 100 different periodicals. Sports Illustrated even begrudgingly published some of my letters (May 10th, 2010 & August 8th, 2011).
THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL FOUNDATION & COLLEGE HALL OF FAME
I am also a proud board member of the Morris Sussex chapter of The National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame. This organization proudly honors a Scholar Athlete Award at each school in Morris and Sussex Counties. The criteria for these awards, as established by the National Awards Committee, are academic achievement, school and civic leadership, and football ability.
WHY IS THIS SITE CURRENTLY IN BETA?
I have a vision of what I’d like this site to be about from both a content and design standpoint. It will take some time for the layers of structure to be built out. So throughout the 2014, this site’s look and feel will evolve. In the meantime, I think you will still enjoy a great product. But until I am totally comfortable the site is where I want it to be, it will remain in BETA.
IN IT TOGETHER
As a community for football in Morris and Sussex Counties, Morris Sussex Football supports its member teams all the way to the State Finals. It is every team’s goal to get to MetLife Stadium. As teams drop out, we create an atmosphere encourages our football community to rally behind the teams that get to the big dance.
The culture of this site is something that I am most proud of. I get a lot of great compliments about the positive energy this site brings to the football community. Morris Sussex Football invests a lot to maintain an affirming atmosphere. Since this is a site that promotes community, we allow and encourage a lot of participation. We ask that all of those that choose to participate through commentary or other means, that you kindly consider the hard work we’ve put into our culture…because if you don’t we’ll just block your IP address anyhow!
