In one sense, Edison has had consistency at the skill positions.
Returning for the Eagles are two talented receivers in Malcolm Stansbury and Jaden Peart, along with quarterback Matt Yascko, a junior who took over the starting role midway through his freshman season.
On the other hand, Edison has been up and down this season. They opened with a win, then alternated with a loss and a win, then another loss and a win over their next few games.

The Eagles (3-2) will look to put together their first winning streak of the season Friday night when No. 5 North Brunswick rolls into Matthew Drwal Stadium for the “Big Central Game of the Week” driven by Mark Montenero and his team at the world-famous Autoland.
Kickoff is 7 pm on Central Jersey Sports Radio with Mike Pavlichko and Justin Sontupe on the call; click here to listen live.
Edison also will be looking to avenge a dramatic loss last year to the Raiders.
With the Eagles driving late in the game down 21-20, Yascko found Stansbury in the left corner of the end zone, but North Brunswick D-back Jelani Devonish-Wynter, in tight coverage, fell to the turf with Stansbury and came out with the ball.
