Carteret football defeats Long Branch

LONG BRANCH – For nearly 39 minutes Long Branch had the lead. Not that the Green Wave was in control. They were not comfortably in front of Carteret … the team that had knocked them out of the Central Jersey Group III play-offs last year.

Make no mistake about it … the Ramblers (7-3) came to play. And with the Green Wave’s (7-3) first trip to the finals since 2,005 hanging in the balance, this CJ III semifinal came down to a bounce of the football and an illfated illegal motion penalty.

Late in the fourth quarter Long Branch led, 17-14. Carteret was facing a fourth down and five yards to go from the Green Wave 24 yard line. With three minutes to play. Quaterback Nelson Baez dropped back to pass and threw a line drive over the middle. The Long Branch defensive line batted the ball high into the air. But on this night, the Green Wave did not get the bounce of the ball. It seemed to sail forever, finally floating into the outstretched arms of intended receiver Brandon Gilder for a 13 yard, Carteret first down.

SEE: High school football semifinals scoreboard, stories, recaps

Two plays later, Same Kamara ran it in from seven yards out to put the Ramblers on top for the first time, 21-17. Still, the gritty Green Wave had one last chance. Taking over at their own 44 yard line, Long Branch quarter-back Jordan Rodriguez completed his own fourth down throw, a 22 yard strike to Saione Washington which moved the Green Wave inside the Rambler 20 yard line.

Dahmiere Willis carried the ball twice for 12 yards. Rodrugiez hit Joe Sanchez with a six yard pass to the one foot line. Long Branch was one foot away from taking the lead with under a minute to play. But on third down … on a play where Willis was going to score, an official , perhaps belatedly, threw a flag, called illegal motion, and stopped Long Branch dead in its tracks.

On the next play, Long Branch suffered its lone turnover of the contest when Rakeen Bennett intercepted a Rodriguez pass. Carteret won, 21-17. Long Branch lost …. Again.

“The kids fought to the end,” said disappointed Long Branch coach Dan George. “We did not play a perfect football game. But we fought. The kids are devastated. The program is devastated. This one is on me.”

Long Branch scored touchdowns the first two times it got the football. Rodriguez found David Colbert for an 18 yard six point strike five minutes into the game. Willis raced 67 yards cutting back from the left side to the right endzone to put the Green Wave in front, 14-7.

“This was just a great high school football game,” said Carteret coach Matt Kascko. “On both sides, it was hard nosed, running, old fashioned football. We just made one more play at the end. What else can you say.”

Bennett ran seven of eight plays , going in from six yards out for the Ramblers first score.

In the second quarter, after a Vince Mota 31 yard field goal for Long Branch, Carteret closed to 17-14 when they surprised the Green Wave go going no huddle and freeing up Bennett for a 32 yard scamper across the goal line.

Carteret’s winning drive covered 11 plays and 52 yards, taking up five and a half minutes off the clock.

KEY PLAY: With under two minutes remaining, Carteret kept its game winning drive alive by catching a tipped fourth down pass.

GAME BALL: Carteret ‘s Rakeem Bennett ran for 137 yards and intercepted Long Branch at the goal line with under one minute to play.

KEY STAT: Long Branch, looking to win its first section title in 15 years, held the lead for almost 39 minutes of action.

NEXT GAME: Long Branch will play Red Bank Regional on Thanksgiving Day. Carteret plays Perth Amboy on Thanksgiving.

After Sitting Out 2020 Due to COVID, Carteret Returns for Football this Fall

CARTERET, NJ—Historically speaking, Carteret has one of the most proudest and tradition rich football programs in Middlesex County. It has one of the oldest rivalries in the state with Perth Amboy known as Battle of the Bayway. The Ramblers have won numerous division and sectional championships. It has a number of former standouts they have played or are currently playing in the NFL such as Jason Worilds (Pittsburgh Steelers) and Sam Kamara (Chicago Bears).

However, it recent years, Carteret had struggled with a 10-21 record overall in the three years prior to the 2020 season. Then, of course, there was the pandemic that forced the school district to cancel both football and basketball in 2020-21. Despite all of the adversity, the Ramblers have persisted, worked hard in the weight room during the offseason, and have started work on developing a new culture. Carteret began its 2021 campaign in the spring when it hired former standout, Kevin Freeman to become the new head coach.

Freeman, who went on to play college football at West Virginia, had been on the Ramblers coaching staff two seasons ago under previous head coach Matt Yascko. He is now taking on his first head coaching job after serving as an assistant in Elizabeth and Lakewood. Freeman and the Ramblers come back to the gridiron in a whole new world of Central Jersey High School Football. The Greater Middlesex Conference is gone as far as football goes, and its football playing schools are now part of the Big Central Conference.

So instead of playing the likes of larger schools such as Colonia, Kennedy, St. Joseph’s, and Woodbridge, the Ramblers are now in a division with similar sized schools from Somerset and Union counties. The only school in its division this year that it last played two years ago in the old GMC Blue is South Plainfield. The Ramblers did play another Big Central Division 3 member in neighborhood rival Rahway in 2019 as part of the GMC-Mid-State 38 crossover schedule, and it will be nice to see them and the Indians play regularly for New Jersey Turnpike Exit 12 bragging rights.

Carteret will have its work cut out for them since the Big Central Conference’s Division 3 is loaded with some of the state’s top football programs like Somerville, Rahway, and Summit. The Somerville Pioneers have re-established themselves as one of the top Group 3 programs in New Jersey within the past five or six years winning Central Jersey Group 3 in 2017 and reaching sectional finals in 2018 and 2019. Rahway was a North Jersey Section 2 Group 3 finalist in 2018 and have had five straight winning seasons under former Woodbridge head coach, Brian Russo.

In 2020, the Indians finished 5-1. They beat the likes of Summit and Watchung Hills last season with the latter coming on the road after Watchung had knocked off perennial powerhouse Phillipsburg the week before. Summit, which was 2-3 in a COVID shortened season that ended after a 20-17 loss at Edison on October 30th, is also a traditional powerhouse that has seemingly always contended for, if not won North Jersey Section 2 Group 3 championships (2009, 2012, 2013, and 2018).

Besides its tough division schedule, the Ramblers will have crossover games against the likes of J.P. Stevens, Perth Amboy, North Plainfield and Hillside. Carteret will have to play Amboy, Somerville, Summit, and North Plainfield on the road while games versus Stevens, Warren Hills, Rahway, South Plainfield, and Hillside are at The Pit. Earlier this week, Carteret began its pre-season with a scrimmage up in Essex County versus Barringer on Tuesday, and on Friday morning hosted Matawan in another exhibition. Big Central Gridiron stopped by to take a look at how the program is coming along.

And BCG was quite impressed with how well the Ramblers played. Carteret had a solid scrimmage in almost all phases of the game. Particularly noteworthy was the play of its offensive and defensive lines, which controlled the line of scrimmage quite well against Matawan. The Ramblers running game got solid performances from four different backs including three (Kanye Groover, Asi Powell, and Marc Gonzalez), who had long runs from scrimmage for scores.

Another aspect of Carteret’s play that benefited from its control of the line of scrimmage was with its goal line offense and defense. With a defense that got out of the blocks quickly, penetrated the opponent’s backfield, and swarmed to the football, the Ramblers didn’t allow Matawan to get into the end zone while its offense was able to score three times with Groover. The defense, led the by the likes of Jehu Andrews, who played for St. Joseph’s last year, also performed well in plays run from scrimmage by getting to the quarterback on several occasions, and also stopping the Huskies running game for losses multiple times.

Carteret’s special teams looked good on kickoffs, punts, and extra points as well. On the PAT’s, CHS got a good surge into the line, and was able to pressure the kick. The Ramblers begin their comeback season next Friday, August 27th when it hosts J.P. Stevens at The Pit. The following week, Carteret will travel to arch rival Perth Amboy to resume its long standing rivalry on Friday, September 2nd. Then, the Ramblers will take on much of its division schedule with games against Somerville, Warren Hills, Rahway, and Summit over a span of four straight weeks starting September 10th versus the Pioneers at Brooks Field.

The precocious signal-caller capped the best season by a freshman quarterback in Shore Conference history by going 10-for-14 for 198 yards and throwing a career-high four touchdown passes on the biggest stage of his young career to help the fifth-seeded Huskies roll to a 27-7 win over the third-seeded Ramblers (8-4) for their first state title since 2011 and their seventh overall. Pearson is believed to be the first freshman quarterback from the Shore to ever be the starter on a state championship team, and the Huskies (8-4) went 8-2 once he was inserted as the starter following an 0-2 start.

“He’s something special,’’ said junior wideout Shawn Ramcheran, who had a pair of touchdown catches. “He’s one of the best quarterbacks I’ve seen in the Shore since (former Matawan star Jared) Allison.”

The enormity of the game, plus a persistent rain, never came close to rattling Pearson. The end result was a seventh title, which ties Matawan with Brick for the third-most state championships in Shore Conference history behind Manasquan (11) and Middletown South (9).

“I knew my team believed in me, so there was nothing to get nervous for,’’ he said. “If they’ve got my back, I’ve got their back.”

“He’s an unbelievable kid,’’ said head coach John Kaye. “He’s unlike any kid I’ve ever coached. Poise, demeanor – nothing fazes him.”

Pearson and Ramcheran were far from the only heroes on the night as senior wide receiver/defensive back Justin Ferrara had a touchdown catch and a huge tackle on fourth down on defense, senior Jimmy Pierce had a touchdown grab, junior linebacker Aliem Shaw had a pair of fumble recoveries, and junior cornerback DeJohn Rogers had an interception as well as three catches for 58 yards on offense. To top it off, the Matawan offensive line paved the way for 358 total yards of offense to bring home the Huskies’ third state title in the last six seasons and the first under Kaye, who is in his third season.

“This is the best thing ever,’’ Pierce said. “The one thing I wanted to do before I leave high school was win a state championship.”

“We don’t care about what anyone else thinks as long as we get the job done and we do what we’ve got to do,’’ Shaw said. “It just feels wonderful to win it.”

That possibility seemed remote early in the season when the Huskies fell into an 0-2 hole with a pair of losses to two top 10 teams in the Shore, St. John Vianney and Rumson-Fair Haven, in which they only scored a combined 20 points. That’s when Kaye decided to go away from the zone read running attack with Pierce at quarterback and switch to a more wide-open passing game with Pearson, who is the nephew of former Dallas Cowboys great and South River star Drew Pearson.

“What (Pearson) has done is amazing,’’ Shaw said. “He is going to do really big things in his career.”

Before Pearson could get to work on Friday night, Matawan’s defense set the tone early. Carteret opened the game by driving to the Huskies’ 20-yard line before Rogers snatched an interception at the 1-yard line on fourth-and-13 for the first of three turnovers by the Ramblers on the night.

Matawan then marched 94 yards in nine plays, highlighted by a 45-yard catch and run by Rogers, before taking a 6-0 lead. Pearson lofted a 32-yard pass on third-and-17 that ricocheted off a Carteret defender and landed in the hands of Pierce for a touchdown with 2:07 left in the first quarter.

“He kind of underthrew me, so I knew I had to save him,’’ Pierce said. “I tried to come up and swat the ball, and somehow it popped up and I just caught it.”

“(Pierce) had my back,’’ Pearson said. “I knew those guys had confidence in me, so I trusted them and let them make plays.”

Carteret answered with its lone scoring drive of the game, a 10-play, 68-yard march capped off by an 18-yard run by Ra’keem Bennett that gave the Ramblers a 7-6 lead with 10:10 left in the second quarter.

Matawan had an immediate answer with a four-play, 84-yard drive highlighted by a 56-yard run by Ramcheran on a jet sweep that helped set up a 17-yard touchdown pass from Pearson to Ferrara for a 13-7 advantage with 8:25 left in the half.

Bennett had 86 yards rushing in the first half on 12 carries out of Carteret’s power-I formation, but the Huskies shut him down after the break, holding him to 11 yards on five carries in the second half.

“We thought they were going to pass more, but the weather threw that off, so we put it on the (defensive) line,’’ Ramcheran said. “I said, ‘You guys want a ring? It’s on you guys tonight.’’’

The score remained 13-7 heading into the fourth quarter as the teams each turned it over once before Matawan built on its lead with a drive that bridged the third and fourth quarters. After Shaw recovered a Carteret fumble at the Ramblers’ 49-yard line, the Huskies went on an eight-play drive that ended when Pearson hit Ramcheran with a shovel pass as Ramcheran sped across the formation for an 8-yard touchdown. Ferrara then hit Pierce on a trick play for a two-point conversion and a 21-7 lead with 11:58 left in the game.

On Carteret’s ensuing possession, the Ramblers drove to their own 49-yard line, where they decided to go for it on fourth-and-1 instead of electing to try to pin Matawan deep with a punt. Ferrara and Shaw led the charge as the Huskies came up with a huge stop on Bennett for no gain and a turnover on downs. They then put the icing on the cake with a nine-play drive that again ended with a shovel pass from Pearson to Ramcheran, this one for a 32-yard  touchdown and a 20-point lead with 3:50 left in the game. Matawan had used the play early in the season and broke it out again for two huge second-half touchdowns to put the game away.

“We lure everybody inside because we run ‘iso’, and you see that D-end squeezing,’’ Ramcheran said. “The best was (St. Louis Rams receiver) Tavon Austin running it at West Virginia with (Jets quarterback) Geno Smith. That’s one of the best plays ever.”

A team that was 3-4 at one point ended with a five-game winning streak for a jubilant end to a roller coaster year. Before the season started, a pair of All-Shore talents, junior running back/linebacker Calvin Beaty and junior wide receiver/cornerback Khalil Haskins, transferred to rival St. John Vianney. Then the Huskies had the 0-2 start, which was followed by the death of Kaye’s father only a few weeks later.

“We grew a hunger,’’ Ramcheran said. “At 0-2 we’d go around town and people were telling us, ‘Oh, you guys are not going to win a ‘ship, you guys are going to have a .500 season.’ I told them, my family at this school, we think otherwise. And now look at us – state champs.”

“There were all the naysayers and detractors when people left and went elsewhere on us,’’ Kaye said. “We just said, ‘We’ll coach the kids who want to stay here and be a part of our team.’ If you want to go somewhere else and play, go play, but we’re going to go coach our guys.’’

This might only be the beginning as the core of the team is the junior class, which will return along with Pearson, who threw for 1,953 yards and 16 touchdowns, which are both believed to be records for a freshman quarterback in Shore Conference history.

“This is going to be the start of a good run,’’ Shaw said.

“I’m positive that we can repeat,’’ Pearson said. “This team is young, but we’re playmakers.”

After Sitting Out 2020 Due to COVID, Carteret Returns for Football this Fall

CARTERET, NJ—Historically speaking, Carteret has one of the most proudest and tradition rich football programs in Middlesex County, carteret ramblers football 2014. It has one of the oldest rivalries in the state with Perth Amboy known as Battle of the Bayway. The Ramblers have won numerous division and sectional championships. It has a number of former standouts they have played or are currently playing in the NFL such as Jason Worilds (Pittsburgh Steelers) and Sam Kamara (Chicago Bears).

However, it recent years, Carteret had struggled with a 10-21 record overall in the three years prior to the 2020 season. Then, of course, there was the pandemic that forced the school district to cancel both football and basketball in 2020-21. Despite all of the adversity, the Ramblers have persisted, worked hard in the weight room during the offseason, and have started work on developing a new culture. Carteret began its 2021 campaign in the spring when it hired former standout, Kevin Freeman to become the new head coach.

Freeman, who went on to play college football at West Virginia, had been on the Ramblers coaching staff two seasons ago under previous head coach Matt Yascko. He is now taking on his first head coaching job after serving as an assistant in Elizabeth and Lakewood. Freeman and the Ramblers come back to the gridiron in a whole new world of Central Jersey High School Football. The Greater Middlesex Conference is gone as far as football goes, and its football playing schools are carteret ramblers football 2014 part of the Big Central Conference.

So instead of playing the likes of larger schools such as Colonia, Kennedy, St. Joseph’s, and Woodbridge, the Ramblers are now in a division with similar sized schools from Somerset and Union counties. The only school in its division this year that it last played two years ago in the old GMC Blue is South Plainfield. The Ramblers did play another Big Central Division 3 carteret ramblers football 2014 in neighborhood rival Rahway in 2019 as part of the GMC-Mid-State 38 crossover schedule, and it will be nice to see them and the Indians play regularly for New Jersey Turnpike Exit 12 bragging rights.

Carteret will have its work cut out for them since the Big Central Conference’s Division 3 is loaded with some of the state’s top football programs like Somerville, Rahway, and Summit. The Somerville Pioneers have re-established themselves as one of the top Group 3 programs in New Jersey within the past five or six years winning Central Jersey Group 3 in 2017 and reaching sectional finals in 2018 and 2019. Rahway was a North Jersey Section 2 Group 3 finalist in 2018 and have had five straight winning seasons under former Woodbridge head coach, Brian Russo.

In 2020, the Indians finished 5-1. They beat the likes of Summit and Watchung Hills last season with the latter coming on the road after Watchung had knocked off perennial powerhouse Phillipsburg the week before. Summit, which was 2-3 in a COVID shortened season that ended after a 20-17 loss at Edison on October 30th, is also a traditional powerhouse that has seemingly always contended for, dci rose bowl not won North Jersey Section 2 Group 3 championships (2009, 2012, 2013, and 2018).

Besides its tough division schedule, the Ramblers will have crossover games against the likes of J.P. Stevens, Perth Amboy, North Plainfield and Hillside. Carteret will have to play Amboy, Somerville, Summit, and North Plainfield on the road while games versus Stevens, Warren Hills, Rahway, South Plainfield, and Hillside are at The Pit. Earlier this week, Carteret began its pre-season with a scrimmage up in Essex County versus Barringer on Tuesday, and on Friday morning hosted Matawan in another exhibition. Big Central Gridiron stopped by to take a look at how the program is coming along.

And BCG was quite impressed with how well the Ramblers played. Carteret had a solid scrimmage in almost all phases of the game. Particularly noteworthy was the play of its offensive and defensive lines, which controlled the line of scrimmage quite well against Matawan. The Ramblers running game got solid performances from four different backs including three (Kanye Groover, Asi Powell, and Marc Gonzalez), who had long runs from scrimmage for scores.

Another aspect of Carteret’s play that benefited from its control of the line of scrimmage was with its goal line offense and defense. With carteret ramblers football 2014 defense that got out of the blocks quickly, penetrated the opponent’s backfield, and swarmed to the football, the Ramblers didn’t allow Matawan to get into the end zone while its offense was able to score three times with Groover. The defense, led the by the likes of Jehu Andrews, who played for St, carteret ramblers football 2014. Joseph’s last year, also performed well in plays run from scrimmage by getting to the quarterback on several occasions, and also stopping the Huskies running game for losses multiple times.

Carteret’s special teams looked good on kickoffs, punts, and extra points as well. On the PAT’s, CHS got a good surge into the line, and was able to pressure the kick. The Ramblers begin their comeback season next Friday, August 27th when it hosts J.P. Stevens at The Pit. The following week, Carteret will travel to arch rival Perth Amboy to resume its long standing rivalry on Friday, September 2nd. Then, the Ramblers will take on much of its division schedule with games against Somerville, Warren Hills, Rahway, and Summit over a span of four straight weeks starting September 10th versus the Pioneers at Brooks Field.

UNION -  Driving rain, Carteret’s defense, historical precedent – none of them was any match for 14-year-old Matawan quarterback George “L.C.” Pearson in Friday night’s NJSIAA Central Jersey Group III championship game at Kean University.

The precocious signal-caller capped the best season by a freshman quarterback in Shore Conference history by going 10-for-14 for 198 yards and throwing a career-high four touchdown passes on the biggest stage of his young career to help the fifth-seeded Huskies roll to a 27-7 win over the third-seeded Ramblers (8-4) for their first state title since 2011 and their seventh overall. Pearson is believed to be the first freshman quarterback from the Shore to ever be the starter on a state championship team, and the Huskies (8-4) went 8-2 once he was inserted as the starter following an 0-2 start.

“He’s something special,’’ said junior wideout Shawn Ramcheran, who had a pair of touchdown catches. “He’s one of the best quarterbacks I’ve seen in the Shore since (former Matawan star Jared) Allison.”

The enormity of the game, plus a persistent rain, never came close to rattling Pearson. The end result was a seventh title, which ties Matawan with Brick for the third-most state championships in Shore Conference history behind Manasquan (11) and Middletown South (9).

“I knew my team believed in me, so there was nothing to get nervous for,’’ he said. “If they’ve got my back, I’ve got their back.”

“He’s an unbelievable kid,’’ said head coach John Kaye, carteret ramblers football 2014. “He’s unlike any kid I’ve ever coached. Poise, demeanor – nothing fazes him.”

Pearson and Ramcheran were far from the only heroes on the night as senior wide receiver/defensive back Justin Ferrara had a touchdown catch and a huge tackle on fourth down on defense, senior Jimmy Pierce had a touchdown grab, junior linebacker Aliem Shaw had a pair of fumble recoveries, and junior cornerback DeJohn Rogers had an interception as well as three catches for 58 yards on offense. To top it off, the Matawan offensive line paved the way for 358 total yards of offense to bring home the Huskies’ third state title in the last six seasons and the first under Kaye, who is in his third season.

“This is the best thing ever,’’ Pierce said. “The one thing I wanted to do before I leave high school was win a state championship.”

“We don’t care about what anyone else thinks as long as we get the job done and we do what we’ve got to do,’’ Shaw said. “It just feels wonderful to win it.”

That possibility seemed remote early in the season when the Huskies fell into an 0-2 hole with a pair of losses to two top 10 teams in the Shore, St. John Vianney and Rumson-Fair Haven, in which they only scored a combined 20 points. That’s when Kaye decided to go away from the zone read running attack with Pierce at quarterback and switch to a more wide-open passing game with Pearson, who is the nephew of former Dallas Cowboys great and South River star Drew Pearson.

“What (Pearson) has done is amazing,’’ Shaw said. “He is going to do really big things in his career.”

Before Pearson could get to work on Friday night, Matawan’s defense set the tone early. Carteret opened the game by driving to the Huskies’ 20-yard line before Rogers snatched carteret ramblers football 2014 interception at the 1-yard line on fourth-and-13 for the first of three turnovers by the Ramblers on the night.

Matawan then marched 94 yards in nine plays, highlighted by a 45-yard catch and run by Rogers, before taking a 6-0 lead. Pearson lofted a 32-yard pass on third-and-17 that ricocheted off a Carteret defender and landed in the hands of Pierce for a touchdown with 2:07 left in the first quarter.

“He kind of underthrew me, so I knew I had to save him,’’ Pierce said. “I tried to come up and swat the ball, and somehow it popped up and I just caught it.”

“(Pierce) had my back,’’ Pearson said. “I knew those guys had confidence in me, so I trusted them and let them make plays.”

Carteret answered with its lone scoring drive of the game, a 10-play, 68-yard march capped off by an 18-yard run by Ra’keem Bennett that gave the Ramblers a 7-6 lead with 10:10 left in the second quarter.

Matawan had an immediate answer with a four-play, 84-yard drive highlighted by a 56-yard run by Ramcheran on a jet sweep that helped set up a 17-yard touchdown pass from Pearson to Ferrara for a 13-7 advantage with 8:25 left in the half.

Bennett had 86 yards rushing in the first half on 12 carries out of Carteret’s power-I formation, but the Huskies shut him down after the break, holding him to 11 yards on five carries in the second half.

“We thought they were going to pass more, but the weather threw that off, so we put it on the (defensive) line,’’ Ramcheran said. “I said, ‘You guys want a ring? It’s on you guys tonight.’’’

The score remained 13-7 heading into the fourth quarter as the teams each turned it over once before Matawan built on its lead with a drive that bridged the third and fourth quarters. After Shaw recovered a Carteret fumble at the Ramblers’ 49-yard line, the Huskies went on an eight-play drive that ended when Pearson hit Ramcheran with a shovel pass as Ramcheran sped across the formation for an 8-yard touchdown. Ferrara then hit Pierce on a trick play for a two-point conversion and a 21-7 lead with 11:58 left in the game.

On Carteret’s ensuing possession, the Ramblers drove to their own 49-yard line, where they decided to go for it on fourth-and-1 instead of electing to try to pin Matawan deep with a punt, carteret ramblers football 2014. Ferrara and Shaw led the charge as the Huskies came up with a huge stop on Bennett for no gain and a turnover on downs, carteret ramblers football 2014. They then put the icing on the cake with a nine-play drive that again ended with a shovel pass from Pearson to Ramcheran, this one for a 32-yard  touchdown and a 20-point lead with 3:50 left in the game, carteret ramblers football 2014. Matawan had used the play early in the season and broke it out again for two huge second-half touchdowns to put the game away.

“We lure everybody inside because we run ‘iso’, and you see that D-end squeezing,’’ Ramcheran said. “The best was (St. Louis Rams receiver) Tavon Austin running it at West Virginia with (Jets quarterback) Geno Smith. That’s one of the best plays ever.”

A team that was 3-4 at one point ended with a five-game winning streak for a jubilant end to a roller coaster year. Before the season started, carteret ramblers football 2014, a pair of All-Shore talents, junior running back/linebacker Calvin Beaty and junior wide receiver/cornerback Khalil Haskins, transferred to rival St, carteret ramblers football 2014. John Vianney. Then the Huskies had carteret ramblers football 2014 0-2 start, which was followed by the death of Kaye’s father only a few weeks later.

“We grew a hunger,’’ Ramcheran said. “At 0-2 we’d go around town and people were telling us, ‘Oh, you guys are not going to win a ‘ship, you guys are going to have a .500 season.’ I carteret ramblers football 2014 them, my family at this school, we think otherwise. And now look at us – state champs.”

“There were all the naysayers and detractors when people left and went elsewhere on us,’’ Kaye said. “We just said, ‘We’ll coach the kids who want to stay here and be a part of our team.’ If you want to go somewhere else and play, go play, but we’re going to go coach our guys.’’

This might only be the beginning as the core of the team is the junior class, which will return along with Pearson, who threw for 1,953 yards and 16 touchdowns, which are both believed to be records for a freshman quarterback in Shore Conference history.

“This is going to be the start of a good run,’’ Shaw said.

“I’m positive that we can repeat,’’ Pearson said. “This team is young, but we’re playmakers.”
