Cranford head coach Erik Rosenmeier believes football is a fall sport. He believes summer is for vacation, and that’s why his team didn’t play in Week One.
It had nothing to do with the remnants of Ida that caused major damage in some parts of town along the Rahway River.
Either way, his team is off to a 2-0 start, following up on a 43-37 OT win over North Hunterdon in the opener with a 45-8 home win at Memorial Field over Summit.
Senior Shane Van Dam and the Cranford offense got the better of Summit and QB Charlie Schaffer, whose attack managed just a single touchdown on the road against the Cougars.
Van Dam threw three touchdown passes to three different receivers, and ran for another.
