Ed’s Scanning the Scene

Week Zero Brings Surprises
The 2014 high school football season got underway this weekend, in what the state calls Week Zero. Five games were played in the Shore Conference, and we already have some surprises.
A Weekend of Championships
The final weekend of the 2013 High School Football season should be a very interesting one.  Seven teams have the opportunity to win championships. I will break them down for you, but you will have to wait until Thursday night to get my predictions.
The Magnificent Seven
Seven Shore Conference schools will represent the State in the finals of the football championships on the weekend of Dec.6-8th.
The Survivors
In the New Jersey HS playoffs it’s all about surviving to the next game.  For 15 schools, the dream continues for another week, as they move to the semi-finals.  Let’s look at the survivors:
The Second Season Begins
The New Jersey State High School playoff season begins with 25 Shore area teams playing 1st round games this coming weekend.
Manalapan Stays Focused
What could be a major week of high school football will take place this weekend. The best of them all could be Colts Neck at Manalapan.
Status Quo For Top 2 Teams
While there was a little movement in the top ten this week, the top 2 remain the same.  Clearly RBC(4-0) and Manalapan(3-0) are the best in the Shore and are 2 of the top teams in the State.  Let’s look at week 4 action around the Shore.
Big Numbers Highlight Week 3
Only 11 teams still remain undefeated after 3 weeks.  While there were a few low scoring games, clearly offensive football was in high gear around the Shore.  Let's look at week 3 as things are beginning to clear.
The Elite Roll On
Week 2 in the books and one thing we all know this early in the 2013 season is the “elite” teams will make some noise come playoff time.
Weather Plays Spoiler In Week 1
With beautiful weather for most of the pre-season, coaches hardly missed a practice as they prepared for week 1.  Well, true to form with New Jersey weather, the rains came Thursday night when most teams were set to open because of the Jewish holidays.
