On a team with many very talented players, Davison Igbinosun is high-profile nationally, getting Power 5 offers from all over the country.

And While he’s a lock to play big-time college football virtually anywhere he wants next year, he still wants more with his teammates. Which is why he was doubly devastated when top-seed Union’s playoff game Friday against Eastside Paterson was cancelled by district Superintendent Dr. Scott Taylor around lunchtime, less than eight hours before kickoff.

Igbinosun opened up about how his team took the abrupt ending to its season, and how he’s pushing for the game to still be played. He and his teammates have a petition on that has garnered more than 3,400 signatures. You can find it here.

Central Jersey Sports Radio has reached out to Dr. Taylor for comment. We’ll let you know if we get a response. Follow us on Twitter @cjsportsradio for the very latest.

We have also reached out to NJSIAA Executive Director Colleen Maguire to find out if rescheduling the game would even be feasible. As of 2 pm Saturday afternoon, we have not received a response from either Maguire or spokesman Michael Cherenson.

We’ll keep you posted.
