It is the cyclical nature of high school sports: players gain experience, grow into seniors, and graduate to the next level, giving a new group of players the chance to break through.
After graduating an accomplished class that guided the Barrons to its first sectional final in 22 years, Woodbridge begins that cycle again this fall, as head coach Joe LaSala leads a team filled with skill players stepping into larger roles.
Seniors Isaiah Allen and Mike Calvert assume the mantle as the Barrons’ top offensive playmakers, replacing All-State running back Ali Lee, Jr. Under center, Saint Joe’s transfer Matt Stanton takes over for three-year starting quarterback Anthony Santino.
Woodbridge is one of ten teams that will open the 2021 season with a Week Zero game, as they play Winslow Township in the Sunday 6 pm finale of the mammoth Battle at the Beach showcase, hosted by the West Jersey Football League in Ocean City, NJ.
