Each week, Patch will preview games from the local NJAC area, and beyond.
Summer’s all but over, which means cold weather is on the horizon. Not the happiest time of year for many, but with the end of summer, comes the beginning of something even better. Football. The 2011 football season promises to be just as exhilarating as last season, as Morris County has a few teams returning with one goal in mind. Repeat as champions. Two of those teams, Madison and Morristown, are each coming off of championship seasons, and with 2010 a thing of the past, both are hoping to continue their dominant ways. Madison, who finished 2010 with an undefeated 12-0 record, stopped James Caldwell High School in the North 2, Group II final, by a score of 28-21, securing its first state title in 12 years. Head coach Chris Kubik saw …
