St. Thomas Aquinas finding historic success, wins fourth straight by shutout

There are only two high school football teams in the entire state of New Jersey who own 4-0 records, while whitewashing each opponent.

Cedar Creek is one; the other is St. Thomas Aquinas.

The Trojans are doing it on both sides of the ball, like in Friday night’s 46-0 win over A.L. Johnson in North Edison.

Sherrod Hudson ran for three touchdowns. John Wyatt had two touchdown receptions from quarterback Jaden Young. And Joel Marelis had a 72-yard scoring sprint.

Auqinas has also beaten Woodstown at home (6-0), and picked up road wins at Roselle (43-0) and Spotswood (59-0).

In Brian Meeney’s second year as head coach, following a 4-3 campaign in 2020 – the Trojans are outscoring their opponents 154-0 through their first four games, best in the Big Central, and are averaging 49.3 points per game in league play.

But they’re also on a historic streak.

Aquinas has not gone unbeaten in its first four games since starting the 1992 season 6-0-1, their streak stopped on November 7th of that year by Edison.

They’ve not started a year with four straight wins since 1989, when the Trojans went ran the table in the regular season and finished 10-1, their lone loss coming in the Parochial South A final to Notre Dame, 9-6.
