The Delbarton Football team, led by senior captains Lukas Ungar, Danny Haijar, Sean Link, and Harry Ganton looks sharper this year with junior quarterback Cole Freeman stepping into his new role. The team started off the season with an impressive win 34-27 over Landon School (Maryland). Landon School is currently 4-2, an extremely impressive team, that Delbarton was able to knock off. However, after this impressive win, Delbarton football lost a heart-breaker to St. Anthony’s (Long Island) at Metlife 16-14, and then lost the following week at Woodrow Wilson High School 48-38. Delbarton Football, opening the season at 1-2, looked bleak. 

However, when the next weekend came, Delbarton was set to play DePaul Catholic, and if you were at Delbarton last year, you know that DePaul is a potent offensive team. Most of the student body believed this game would be nothing short of a blowout by the visitors. Yet, the football team rallied and won the game with a final score of 39-37 in TRIPLE OVERTIME. Cole Freeman and Jake Jarmolowich stood out in that game, giving hope to Delbarton football for both this and next year. Delbarton then even on the season at 2-2, went on to win their next two games. Delbarton demolished Morris Knolls 42-7 and took down Pope John 24-19 at Homecoming. Delbarton, at 4-2  and on a three game win streak, looked good heading into face the 5-1 Pirates from Seton Hall Prep. 

Sadly, Delbarton came up two points short against Seton Hall Prep and lost 16-14 in a hard-fought battle. The team was heartbroken to lose to their arch-rivals. Yet the team is looking to the future. Still disappointed, the team is currently 4-3 and looking for a big win this weekend over Morristown, and after, at Clifton. The football team is to pick up two wins and finish off the regular season at 6-3. As the football team is looking toward the playoffs, it hopes to gain a measure of redemption over the losses to Seton Hall and St. Anthony’s. The student body waits anxiously for Delbarton football playoffs to begin, hoping Coach Bowers and the team can capture some magic and bring home its first title in a decade.
