Donovan Catholic is 6-3, having competed in the rugged American Division during the regular season.  They then outlasted Hudson Catholic 27-20 in overtime in the opening round of the NJSIAA Non-Public Group A Tournament.  Their reward for that win is a date with Bergen Catholic on Saturday.  The Crusaders are ranked second in New Jersey and seeking their 16th sectional title.

During the hour-long show we will also take a look at this weekend’s public school sectional finals involving Toms River North, Middletown South and of course the head-to-head meeting between Raritan and Rumson-Fair Haven.

Now in its 12th season the Coaches Corner is presented by Varsity Link which is the newest social media platform for students and athletes and designed to allow them to showcase their best qualities to increase their chance to get recognized and recruited.  The athletes build their own profile specifically tailored to the sport they play.  Download the Varsity Link app now, it’s available on the App Store and Google Play.
