Biggins throws TD pass to Bell, while Louis scores twice and Moore once in Dec. 8 clash at Rutgers

So now that Hillside followed up a third straight state championship with a first regional title, what is the next challenge for the suddenly unstoppable Comets? “We’re now chasing Lou Rettino,” said fourth-year head coach Barris Grant on Monday, referring to the former legendary Union mentor guiding the only program in Union County to four […]

Hillside football attempting to become first Union County team to win a Regional Championship; South Jersey, Group 2 state champion Comets (11-0) clash with Cedar Creek Dec. 8 at Rutgers

Winning a state championship is the ultimate in football. However, losing a game in the same season after capturing one can leave an empty feeling. That’s what the Hillside Comets experienced 12 months ago. They do not intend to have that same feeling come Sunday. Hillside (11-0) will clash with Cedar Creek (10-2) Sunday at […]

Hillside football, 11-0 again after capturing a 3rd straight state championship, eyes first undefeated finish; South Jersey, Group 2 champ Comets next play Dec. 8

Opponent will be either Cedar Creek or Camden in the South, Group 2 Regional Championship Game to be contested at Rutgers

In New Jersey now if you are good and fortunate enough to win a state championship, which means winning three sectional playoff games in three weeks, you then run the risk of failure afterwards. Last year Hillside was among New Jersey’s state championship football teams that concluded their campaigns with a season-ending loss. Hillside’s first […]

Two programs clashing for the first time. Two programs with a rich history of winning it all on more than one occasion. Two programs that were eliminated in the semifinal round of their sectional playoffs a year ago, each finishing 8-3. Two programs that have not won in a long time, the road team in […]

Former Irvington player, assistant coach and head coach Darnell Grant left Irvington to take over as head coach at Shabazz in 2010. With Shabazz dropped down to Group 2 at the time and now in a different conference he thought his days of preparing for the Union Farmers were done. He then became the head […]
