They say the only sure things in life are death and taxes.

Making the playoffs in high school football isn’t anywhere near the list.

That being said, Piscataway (3-3) has a chance to take care of business over the next three weeks that can get them in the postseason, starting with a Friday night matchup against East Brunswick (0-6) in a Big Central Conference National Gold Division game that can be heard right here on Central Jersey Sports Radio, with kickoff set for 6 pm at Kenny Armwood Stadium.

The Chiefs are a young bunch, with only four seniors who see significant playing time. The better news is that their quarterback, Elan McCrorey, and top runningback, James Bodely, are both juniors. Their offensive line will graduate just one senior, and will bring back three of them, along with a sophomore, while eight of 11 defensive starters also will return.

Still, Piscataway is focused on doing something good this season, too. Their first two losses – to Long Branch and Hunterdon Central – came by a combined three points, with the Red Devils needing overtime to beat the Chiefs. They could just as well by 5-1 right now.
