Are u sure maso isn't wrestling? I didn't hear that
Good input ! SPP has a 160pounder, Manny Ramirez who is from my current town, Cedar Grove, he used to play little league baseball with my son, and I only remember is a chubby little boy, lol Now he is being touted as one of the better 160 pounders in the state ! I hope to catch a SPP match somewhere. A lot of the Catholic kids from our town do the commute to SPP. I'm pretty sure we send more to SPP than Seton Hall Prep which is much closer.

Bergen Catholic wrestling has been good for years, with several individual state champs and tons of team titles. Bergen is more high profile in recent years with the individual success of Sebastian and now Suriano. Both kids were in the top 5 in their weight nationally all 4 years.
Bosco is a different story. A few of their top guys were multi sport kids in football. Even Chakonis is an above average football player. Bosco's recently found depth is where things get murky. They are putting out a high quality kid at every weight now.
if you want to throw St. Peter's into the conversation, their rise has been longer and perhaps steadier than Bosco's. Their state champs, James Fox and Lenny Richardson, didn't come into the program with the pedigree of a Sebastian or Suriano. Richardson is a Jersey City kid. Fox comes from a family that stresses academics. His senior year season was magical, but pretty unexpected. If you look at the studs on teh SPP roster, you see lots of familial ties to SPP. Not sure it makes it any more "right" than the others, but at least you can point to "so and so's uncle went to SPP in the 80s" as some sort of tie to the school. Not much of that going on at Bosco.
