Aidan McLaughlin knows the meaning of “humbling.”
It was how he must have felt a year ago, when he broke his collarbone in several places, and had to sit out the remainder of the year.
No matter. He’s back this year, stronger than ever, and with a group of seniors with whom he’s come up through the ranks.
Coming off a 4-5 season where Monroe more than doubled its win total from the previous two years combined, the Falcons are senior-laden and expecting big things in 2020.
It’s why a season-opening loss to Old Bridge hurt, but it also explains why McLaughlin and company came back the way they did in Week 2: with a 63-18 win over Perth Amboy that set a school record for points, where McLaughlin threw for a school record 315 yards on 14-of-23 passing, with three touchdowns.
