"True" High School Football Champs in New Jersey?

by Jeff Fisher
Host, NHSCA Sports Hour

By December, New Jersey high school football fans will know whether the New Jersey Interscholastic Athletic Association will begin crowning overall state champs. Currently, the NJSIAA only awards sectional championships.

On today's NHSCA Sports Hour we'll talk with Bill Bruno, athletic director at Brick Memorial, and Marcus Borden, head football coach at East Brunswick, who are working together on a proposal to extend the playoffs beyond the present set-up that crowns 19 sectional and non-public champs.  The new system, if approved, will result in seven champions.

Earlier this week, the NJSIAA executive committee approved a proposal to allow its member schools to vote on an amendment to the state athletic constitution that would extend the playoffs that would allow for state group championships. If the amendment is approved by a two-third majority, New Jersey could begin playing for overall state titles in 2013.
