Bound Brook football getting tremendous support from administration, hits paydirt with first win since ’21

Following an 0-9 season in 2022, there was no doom and gloom around the Bound Brook football program.

That could have easily been the case, but it wasn’t.

To start, the administration already had planned upgrades to LaMonte Field, which got its turf replaced this summer and also installed new LED lights that can put on a show whenever the team scores.

Well, they got to do that plenty Friday night in a 35-13 win over South River, the Crusaders’ first victory since late October, 2021, when they beat Roselle 20-14.

The other positivity came from kids in school. The ones who came out last year – some of whom who were being taught things like “once we punt, we’re on defense,” and “four downs to get ten yards” – stuck around and hit the weight room. Basketball players came out for football, in a true sense of school spirit.

Now, three games into the season, the streak is history, and Bound Brook will try and get on a two-game win streak – something it last did in the first two games of 2021 – when the Crusaders play host to Voorhees (1-3) this Friday night.
