When it comes to J.P. Stevens, it’s easy to talk about the streak. Five losses to start this season and 36-straight dating back to the last win on October 26, 2018, against Monroe.

But for new head coach Jason Goerge, it’s not something the Hawks let hang over them like a dark cloud.

Sure, it’s out there. It exists. But J.P. doesn’t entertain it. Becoming more competitive, winning games, eventually winning lots of games – those are big picture things, and right now J.P. is focused on just trying to get better with every passing day.

“We’re looking to isolate every single rep,” Goerge says. “We’re believing in the process and that the results will come if we do that every day.”

An example: a 12-play, 60-plus-yard touchdown drive in the first half last week against South Plainfield that brought the Hawks back within striking distance. Goerge wants his guys to chase that feeling.

The Hawks will look to keep taking things step-by-step as they visit red-hot Carteret (4-1, 2-0 Big Central – United Silver) Friday night. Coverage begins at 6:40 on Central Jersey Sports Radio with Mike Pavlichko and Justin Sontupe on the broadcast. Kickoff is slated for 7:00. Click here to listen.
