Atlantic Physical Therapy Center 2017 Week 3 Football Picks
The Shore Sports Network football staff of Kevin Williams, Matt Harmon, Ed Sarluca, and Bob Badders are back with their 2017 weekly picks in Shore Conference football action.
We will also have a guest picker each week. This week's guest picker is Rutgers University Wrestling Head Coach Scott Goodale, a Jackson Memorial graduate who also coached the Jaguars wrestling team and was an assistant on the football team.
Goodale became Rutgers' head coach for the 2007-2007 season, and since then the program has reached new heights while competing in the country's best conference, the Big Ten. Over the past four seasons, Rutgers has had six All-Americans, and since 2009 the Scarlet Knights have earned two top-10 finishes and six top-25 finishes in the USA Today/NWCA Division I Coaches Poll.
During Goodale's tenure in Piscataway, Rutgers has produced six All-Americans, three conference champions (Two Big Ten, One EIWA), 58 NCAA Championship bids, 18 Big Ten Conference Championships place-winners and 42 place-winners at the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association (EIWA) Championships. The Scarlet Knights are 153-55-1 during Goodale's 10 years at the helm of the program.
Rutgers is expected to be among the top teams in Big Ten this season with six wrestlers ranked in the top 20 of their respective weight classes by FloWrestling: Nick Suriano (No. 3 at 125), Scott DelVecchio (No. 11 at 133), Anthony Ashnault (No. 5 at 141), Richie Lewis (No. 7 at 157), Jordan Pagano (No. 14 at 174) and Nick Gravina (No. 10 at 184).
Before being hired at Rutgers, Goodale coached Jackson Memorial for seven seasons and led the Jaguars to a 155-16 record and the No. 1 ranking in New Jersey in 2006 and 2007. Goodale was named New Jersey State Coach of the Year three times and led the Jaguars to several titles, including consecutive NJSIAA Group IV championships in 2006 and 2007.
During Goodale's time as an assistant football coach at Jackson Memorial he was part of three state championship teams.
During his scholastic career, Goodale was a four-time district champion, two-time region champion and two-time state medalist who finished with 115 career wins.
The records of our 2017 guest pickers are as follows:
Week 1 - Scott Stump: 16-6
Week 2 - Keith Elias: 12-10
