Edison looking for consistency when No. 5 North Brunswick comes to town

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.

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.

Shittu, Stansbury are primed to help Edison “finish” in 2021

The Edison Eagles were 6-2 in the COVID-shortened 2020 football season.

But a closer look reveals they were just two points shy of a perfect season.

They dropped their opener 7-6 at Franklin, and then a heartbreaker to North Brunswick a few weeks later 21-20.

No need to remind them of either defeat, especially the one to the Raiders. They remember it well, and are using it as fuel for 2021, where the goal is to close, to finish games.

Edison returns a number of key players on offense on defense. There’s junior quarterback Matt Yascko, who began his career as a starter midway through his freshman campaign. Jaden Peart and Malcolm Stansbury are two top receivers. On defense, Stansbury will man one of the corners, while Adekunle Shittu will be a disruptive force at end, after leading the team in sacks, TFLs and quarterback hurries a year ago.
