GMC RED DIVISION
Head Coach: Terry McKibbin, eighth season (103-38-9)
2011 record: 20-1-2
Top lettermen lost: Rob Shalikar (Sr., D), Abu Bestawros (Sr., F), Nigel Joseph (Sr., M), Chris Bradley (Sr., F).
Returners: Zach Becker (Sr., F), Anik Ray (Jr., M), Joseph Grimando (Sr., F), Alex Stelicos (Sr., F), Joseph Gudzak (Jr., M), Raphi Zonis (Sr., M), Richard Kehoe (Sr., D).
Newcomers: Joshua Barkoff (So., D), Jesse Stabinsky (Jr., D), Dominic Bohorquez (Jr., M), Richie Santana (Jr., M), Ryan Goydos (Jr., GK), Luke Smalley (Jr., F), Derek Morgen (So., M), Michael Segura (S., D), Sean Mulhollem (Jr., D), Kevin Walsh (So., F), Teryn Reed (Sr., D), Ethan Yaros (Sr., M), Adam Rosa (So., D), Robert Kamil (Jr., F).
Outlook: Coming off a season in which they earned divisional, co-county and state sectional titles, the Bears must replace 14 graduating seniors, eight of whom are currently playing in college, including last year’s Player of the Year Shalikar. They also lost Yannick Ntone-Kouo, who scored eight goals last season in limited minutes, to Academy. They will look to Kehoe, a four-year starter, to provide leadership on the back line while Gudzak and Ray will anchor the midfield as they try to work in a number of new players without much varsity experience. Stelicos, Zonis, and a young supporting cast will have the daunting task of replacing 63 of the team’s 67 goals scored a year ago.
Head Coach: Steve MacKenzie, 14th season (175-87-13)
2011 record: 12-5-2
Top lettermen lost: Aaron Potter (Jr., F)
Returners: Luigi Buffolino (Sr., F), Sean Doyle (Sr., M), Dom Polidoro (Sr., M), Kyle Kaplan (Sr., M), Tyler Utheim (Jr., GK), Corey Klaskin (Jr., M), Kevin Brix (Sr., D), Mike Mischler (Jr., D), Christian Corbisiero (Jr., D), Brandon Cherney (Jr., D), Aaron Fawzy (Jr., M).
Newcomers: Alex Infosino (So., M), Kyle Knotts (So., M), Justin Thompson (So., M), Ryan Sosnak (Jr., GK), Steven Nunes (Sr., M), Roberto Soto Sr., D), Alec Vastardis (Jr., F), Mark Martin (Sr., M), Kaushik Dhanyamajura (Sr., F), Stephen Jacot (Sr., F), John Cosenza (Jr., M), Sharif Aly (Jr., D).
Outlook: The Falcons return nearly their entire team intact, bringing back nine of 11 starters from a year ago and good depth to go along with it. They did lose Potter to Academy, but return two players in Buffolino and Doyle who are two of the best attacking players in the entire conference. They also bring back virtually their entire back line and goalkeeper in Utheim. With plenty of continuity, the Falcons are a solid favorite to hoist the GMC title.
Head Coach: Paul Liddy, fifth season (57-30-8; 149-95-22 overall)
2011 record: 10-8-4
Top lettermen lost: June Ombwayo (Sr., D).
Returners: Anish Baweja (Sr., F), David Coffie-Owusu (Sr., F), Anish Roy (Sr., D), Amir Toloue (Sr., D), Kyle Telfer (Sr., M), Joey Ikuss (Sr., M), Dvir Hizkiyahu (Sr., M), Mohammed Haji (Sr., M), Edwin Mekkattukula (Sr., M), Steven Szakacs (Jr., GK).
Newcomers: Dhrumit Patel (Sr., D), Julio Ruiz (Sr., F), Brandon Shamy (Jr., GK), Nick Fareri (Jr., D), Fifi Coffie-Owusu (Jr., D), Karim El-Shoubary (Jr., D), David Abraham (Jr., D), Devon Kaula (Jr., D), Matt Gorda (Jr., D), Khamisi Glover (So., M), G.P. Baier (So., M), Lucas Gomes (So., F), Jordan Luthers (Fr., M).
Outlook: It’s a trademark for the Raiders that they’re going to fight and chip away at opponents. They’ve lost some key players in the midfield and on defense, but will look to second year starters Roy, Toloue, and Telfer to help fill that void. Baweja and Coffie-Owusu will be looked on to lead the scoring punch as the Raiders hope to be competitive in the division while working in some new players to the varsity level.
Head Coach: Chris McGrath, sixth season (48-47-3)
2011 record: 10-12
Top lettermen lost: Aaron Hart (Sr., F).
Returners: Logan Stevenson (Sr., M), Nik Remshifski (Sr., M/D), Billy Richard (Sr., F), Amr Mohamed (Sr., F), Bhairav Mehta (Jr., F), Nick Carrington (Jr., D), Ayo Haruna (Sr., D), Lou Petrozziello (So., D), Steve Jodogne (Sr., D), Terry Boateng (Sr., D), Chris Botros (Jr., GK).
Newcomers: Tyler Mazza (Fr.), Chris Scheuerman (Fr.), Andrew Stetson (Jr., D), Dan Baron (Jr., D), Joe Aldorasi (Jr., F), Nick Petrozziello (Jr., F), Abdul Shehata (Sr., F) Miguel Garrido (F).
Outlook: The Knights have a good blend of experience, youth, and athleticism as they look to replace the 19 goals Hart provided a year ago. Stevenson returns as a four-year starter while Remshifski is a three-year starter who is a defensive specialist, but can attack as well if needed to. The Knights made a trip to the county semifinals last season and hope to use that as a springboard to advance that fart again and try to get even further as they should be competitive in the always tough Red Division.
Head Coach: Dave Hilgert, eighth season (58-70)
2011 record: 6-13
Returners: Austin Freeman (Jr., D), Alex Vito (Jr., D), Mario Davis (Sr., D), Aaron Freeman (Sr., F), Dylan Tsague (Sr., M).
Newcomers: Yvans Tsague (Sr., M).
Outlook: The Chiefs have some good young, talented players, led by the Freeman brothers. They know their individual talent though does not guarantee success and must focus to improve to reach their goals. They may not be one heavy favorites in the Red, but the Chiefs will give plenty of teams fits and should be competitive in the tough Red Division, which has only seven teams this season.
Head Coach: Michael O’Boyle, 10th season
2011 record: 13-6-3
Top lettermen lost: Brandon Allen (Sr., F), Dmitri Vassiliadis (Sr., M).
Returners: Andrew Bell (Sr., M), Patrick Bell (Sr., M), Dario Camporeale (Sr., M), Peter Dresch (Jr., F), Alex Riviere (Sr., M), Nick Silowka (Sr., F).
Newcomers: Joe Bruno (So., GK), Brandon Cruz (So., M), Ethan Donnelly (So., D), Brandon Goldy (So., D), Grant Kelly (So., M), Tobi Oluwalana (So., F), Brandon Kacani (So., D).
Outlook: The Falcons took some heavy hits to graduation, particularly Allen, who has done a bulk of their scoring the past four years and Vassiliadis, who played a big part in getting Allen the ball. There’s the potential for this team to be good, but with a large numbers of sophomores potentially starting, there will be some inexperience early on. Oluwalana is a transfer student and is not eligible to play the first 30 days of the season. The Falcons are always dangerous and could surprise some teams despite the losses they’ve suffered.
Head Coach: Chris Hayston, 10th season (102-72-6)
2011 record: 11-8-1
Top lettermen lost: Kyle Goodwin (So., F).
Returners: Emanuel Agyen (Sr., M), Alex Hwang (Sr., D), Jimmy Quilter (Sr., GK), Cameron Selamie (Sr., F), Shaun Sterner (Sr., D), Jorge de la Bandera (Jr., D), Tommy Dorsay (Jr., F), Tommy Tuskey (Jr., D), Harrison Kudwitt (So., M).
Newcomers: Nick Demetriou (Sr., D), Dylan Elias (Sr., M), Fred Strebeck (Sr., M), Santiago Giraldo (Jr., M), Alex Kainer (Jr., F), Erich Kaiser (Jr., GK), Jared Man (Jr., D), Morgan Murray (Jr., F), Ryan Philip (So., D), Alexi Rissiotis (So., D).
Outlook: Despite the loss of Goodwin to the Academy, the Vikings again should be very competitive with Quilter in goal anchoring the defense. Four-year letter winner Sterner returns after missing much of last season with injury, as he and Hwang will anchor the back line. Offensively, Dorsay and Selamie will be looked on for goals along with Elias. The Vikings pose a decent amount of depth and should be in contention all season long.
GMC WHITE DIVISION
Head Coach: Mike Kizoulis, eighth season (57-63-12)
2011 record: 11-8-1
Top lettermen lost: Nico Cuzzola (Sr., M).
Returners: Greg Ciuba (Sr., F), Matt D’Alessandro (Sr., D), Nick Blackburn (Sr., D), Jake Ulasevich (Jr., M), Danny Adao (Jr., M), Jacob Szlachta (Jr., M/F), Nick Filzen (So., D).
Newcomers: Ryan Litterer (Fr., GK), Phil Fonseca (Jr., M), Kevin Korycki (So., D), Brandon Bras (So., M).
Outlook: After a solid season a year ago, the Patriots should be competitive in the division again. They return several players from last season’s squad and will mix in a few newcomers, including Litterer, a freshman, in goal.
Head Coach: Brian Murtagh, second season (11-5-2)
2011 record: 11-5-2
Top lettermen lost: Juri Solano (Sr., D/M).
Returners: Sammie Kim (Sr., M), Mohamed Mohamed (Sr., Forward), Wilfred Asamoah (Sr., D), Chris Noel (Jr., M), Jordan Rosenhouse (Jr., M), Dante Davis (Sr., M/F), Ali Mohamed (Jr., M), Romanch Vakharia (Jr., M), Mused Mohamed (So., F).
Newcomers: Johnathan Langballe (Sr., D), Jesse Finer (Sr., D), Alec Goldhamer (Sr., M), Nick Sanchez (Sr., M), Simon Zapata (Sr., D), Muhammed Patel (Sr., M), Alex Sheyer (Sr., M), Andrew Pena (Sr., M), Dabeet Sharma (Sr., F), Ram Sridhar (Jr., D), Mohamed Siddiqui (Jr., D), Dennis Amuzu (Jr., D), John Collins (So., M), Romit Sevani (Sr., GK), David Jordan (Jr., GK).
Outlook: After a surprise run to a GMC co-championship a year ago, the Eagles come into the season expecting to compete to win a wide open White Division. The trio of Mohamed brothers are the three starters at forward and will provide much of the scoring punch while Asamoah is quick to the ball and should be one of the top defenders in the county. The Eagles hope to fare better in the state tournament this year, as they’ve been eliminated in the first round the past three seasons.
Head Coach: Steve Rubin, 30th season
2011 record: 7-11-1
Returners: Sergio Flores (Jr., F), Kelvyn Leon (Sr., M), Chris Gomez Jr., M), Mario Abuto (Sr., F), Angel Santiago (Sr., M), Brandon Luna (Sr., GK), Julio Ortiz (Sr., D), Jorge Sanchez (Sr., F).
Newcomers: Kelvin Chico (So., M), J. C. Hernandez (Jr., D), Facundo Mendez (So., D), Erick Reyna (Sr., D), Luis Del Castillo (Sr., D), Gaston Medina (So., M), Luiliam Teixeira (Jr., M), Emmanuel Grande (Sr., M).
Outlook: The Panthers should be improved defensively this season as Del Castillo will stabilize the back line. Flores scored 12 goals last season and should provide a bulk of the scoring to go with Sanchez. With their ability to move the ball and score, the Panthers are looking to break the .500 mark.
Head Coach: Nick Cifelli, 12th season (134-72-11; 163-99-15 overall)
2011 record: 17-5
Top lettermen lost: Olisa Eze (Sr., F).
Returners: Alhaji Sheriff (Sr., F), Thalles Gomes (Sr., M), Immanuel Ongweny (Sr., D), Andres Maldonado (Jr., M), Jon Portillo (Sr., M), Cody Santangelo (Sr., D), Alex DaRocha (Jr., M), Matt Batko (Sr., D), John Eleftheriades (Sr., M), Andrew Leibowitz (Sr., GK).
Newcomers: Zouhair Zamraki (Sr., D), Andrew Geker (Sr., M), Eric Weber (Sr., GK), Matt Lasko (Jr., M), Bjourn Anderson (So., F/M), Trevor Pucciarello (So., M), Lucas Pereira (Fr., F).
Outlook: The Bombers lost 83 percent of their scoring to graduation, including the 36 goals scored by Eze, who is now at Rutgers. The team returns just four starters as well as six other players with varsity experience, but expects to be competitive in the division again after storming through the division last season with a 14-0 record. Sheriff had seven goals and four assists last year while Gomes had three goals and eight assists, as those two will be the offensive leaders this season.
Head Coach: Anthony Perfilio, eighth season (73-56-8)
2011 record: 6-9-3
Returners: Taylor Born (Sr., M), Patrick Boyle (Sr., GK), Chris Butrico (Sr., D), Jesse Deffler (Sr., D), Patrick McCoid (So., D), Roberto Mendoza (Sr., F/M), Alexis Moreno (Sr., F/M).
Newcomers: Jacob Alba (Fr., D), Mark Butrico (So., D), Italo Cardoso (So., M), Kevin Casteblanco (So., F), Gavin Castro (Fr., M), Josue Cevallos (Jr., F/M), Carl Cirilli (So., M/D), Michael DelGenio (Sr., M), Kyle Dennis (So., GK), Jose Guardado (So., M), Keanu O’Neal (Sr., D/M), Eduardo Perez (Sr., M), Nick Polizzano, Nick (Fr., F), Erick Rodriguez (Sr., F/M), Anthony Rovayo (So., M).
Outlook: It’s an almost entirely new team this season for the Tigers, who were plagued by the injury bug a year ago. With a few veterans back though mixed with some good young talent, Perfilio is confident the team can be competitive within the division and hopefully fare well when it comes time for the county and state tournaments.
Head Coach: Constantin Ballos, 11th season
2011 record: 2-14
Returners: Jason Frank (Sr., M), Jim Field (Sr., D/M), Joe Napolitano (Sr., D), Matt Montalvo (Jr., D), Juwon Ogunjobi (Jr., D/M), Daniel Macualay-Smith (Jr., M/F), Rodrigo DaSilva (So., M), Eugene Frimpong (So., M/D), Sean Torres (Jr., GK), Edward Juan (Jr., D).
Newcomers: Herbert Robles (Fr., M/D), Joe Bacalhau (Fr., F/M), Abe Juan (Fr., D/M).
Outlook: With only one starter from last year’s team gone, the Barrons have an experienced team in place for this season. It still may be a struggle though for them to compete with some of the bigger schools in its division after struggling a year ago.
GMC BLUE DIVISION
Head Coach: Tommy Lacson, 10th season
2011 record: 3-12-1
Returners: Scott Licari (Sr., GK), Ryan Ruziki (Sr., M/D), Richard Loman (Sr., D), Chris Sudowsky (Sr., M/F), Ryan Martinelli (Sr., M/F), Zachary Hill (Sr., M/D), Gabe Estevez (Sr., M/D), Chris Carnavale (Jr., M/F), Gerald Demby (Jr., M/F), Dave Pastore (So., M/D).
Newcomers: Robbie Grabowski (So., D), Tyler Earl (So., M/F), Diego Gambotto (Fr., M/F), Dylan Cruz (Fr., M/F), Luke Roche (Fr., M/D), Kyle Veltre (Fr., D), Anthony Tirri (Fr., GK), Dante Trigo (Fr., F), Pat Hartman (Fr., M/D), Daniel Reguinga (Fr., M/D), Tyler Underwood (Fr., M/D), Joshua Riley (Fr., M), Angelo Napoli (Fr., M/F), Alexander Cardoza (Fr., GK).
Outlook: The Trojans lost six starters from last year’s team, but do return eight veterans. With a couple of younger players mixed with the returnees, there’s hope that they can be more competitive this season and try to finish above .500 in the balanced Blue Division.
Head Coach: Ed Bobal, 32nd season
2011 record: 2-11-1
Returners: Anderson Bonilla (Sr.), Joe Carlino (Sr.), Christian Rivera (Sr.), Joe Ponteriero (Sr.), Ryan Dean (Jr.), Mickey Ceselka (Jr.), Chris Frost (Jr.), Colin Puff (Jr.), Max Escate (Jr.), Steven Salano (Jr.), Michael Perez (So.), Kieran Williams (So.).
Newcomers: Jeff McGeehan (Sr.), Jason Carvalho (Jr.), David Amarol (Jr.), Josh Wierczerak (Jr.), Matt Scalia (So.), Johnny Evangelou (Fr.), Noah Miranda (Fr.).
Outlook: After having their struggles in the White Division, the Mustangs drop down to the Blue this season where they expect to be very competitive in a wide open division. A strong group of underclassmen has them looking to improve upon last season’s record and drive the team to future success.
Head Coach: Ken Graf, 38th season (419-287-61)
2011 record: 8-8-4
Returners: Ryan O’Neil (Sr.), Kyle Salmon (Sr.), Tom Costello (Sr.), Brandon Kessler (Sr.), Cory Reisch (Sr.), Julian Lenartowicz (Jr.),Jake Lucas (Jr.), Frank McGuire (Jr.), Matt Nicholas (Jr.), Brian Sullivan (Jr.), Joe Misdea (So.).
Newcomers: Tom Biancamano (Sr.), Oliver Owens (Sr.), Connor Babos (Sr.), Brian Eustace (Jr.), Chris Kaye(Jr.), Mike Redshaw (Jr.), Garrett Schafer (Jr.), Tom Brennan (Jr.), Dan Lackland (Jr.), Ben O’Connell (So.).
Outlook: The Bulldogs sport a junior and senior dominated team, led by O’Neil. They expect to be much improved over last season, in which they started out 0-4-1 before salvaging their season by going undefeated over its next eight games. As always, the Bulldogs will play sound soccer and be in contention for the division crown under Graf, who has been a part of the Metuchen program for all 41 years of its existence.
Head Coach: Keith Murray, 14th season
2011 record: 6-8-2
Returners: Geovanni Barbozza (Sr., M), Steven Martinez (Sr., M), Joe Korom (Jr., M), Kevin Ayala (Sr., M), John Castillo (Sr., GK).
Newcomers: Edison Armijos (Sr., F), Carsten Bowers (Jr., D), Kevin Ruiz (Jr., D), Isaac Ortiz (Jr., M), Ben Martinez (Jr., D), Paul Matt (Jr., GK/F), David Spencer (So., D), Manuel Marina (So., D), Ivan Matta (Fr., F/M), Paolo Marina (Fr., F/M), John Rosello (Sr., GK), John Ortiz (Sr., M).
Outlook: It will be a rebuilding year of sorts for the Blue Jays as five starters return, including Castillo in net. Two year varsity starter Darryl Handley, a defensive stalwart, will miss the season due to injury. With a blend of juniors, sophomores, and a pair of freshmen new to the program, the Blue Jays hope to be competitive and could possibly surprise a team or two as the season builds on.
Head Coach: Eric Clays, 13th season
2011 record: 9-8-3
Returners: Obeth Silva, Rolando Martinez, Chris Aarons.
Newcomers: Jose Marcial, Andre Marach, Gettsamnni Lopez.
Outlook: The Rams are coming off a season in which they won a division title and hope to compete for it again, along with advancing deep into the state tournament. The trio of Silva, Martinez, and Aarons provides a solid nucleus as the Rams cannot be taken lightly.
Head Coach: Jeff Marvinny, 10th season (79-87-9)
2011 record: 8-7-1
Returners: Saul Marcial (Sr., F/M), Hunter Padilla (Sr., F), Ryan McLaughlin (Sr., F), Danny Logatto (Sr., M), Dylan Church (Sr., D), Chris Torres (Sr., D), Matt Brauer (Sr., D), Trevor Miller (Sr., D), Andrew Pelham (Sr., GK), Beshoy Eskander (Sr., M), Fady Habib (Jr., M), Brian Thuring (Jr., M), Will Andrews (Jr., D).
Newcomers: Devin Gray (Sr., D/M), Steve Yuhasz (Jr., M), Adrian Neves (So., D), Justin Vizzi (So., F), Nicky Logatto (So., M).
Outlook: The Chargers are primed to have a successful season as they return 13 players from last year’s team, including 11 players who started at least half the games. Marcial led the team with 13 goals and will have the added presence of this season of Padilla, who missed most of last season with an injury. Pelham recorded eight shutouts in net and is one of the better goalies in the conference as the Chargers should be in contention for the division title.
GMC GOLD DIVISION
Head Coach: Kathy McNulty, 10th season (81-80-3)
2011 record: 9-11
Returners: Joanne Dallagnese (Jr., M/D), Dan Delmonaco (Sr., M/D), Ben Eisner (Sr ., M/F), Zohair Ezzaki (Jr., M/F), Kevin Horlavadi (Sr., M/F), Ishaan Jain (Sr., D), Emily Jurcsek (Jr., M/F), Steve Jurcsek (Sr., D), Shrey Mendiratta (Jr., M/F), Matt Persing (Sr., M/F), Ruky Rupasinghe (Jr., B/M/F), Sanmesh Udhayakumar (Sr., M/F).
Newcomers: Anthony Ferrentino (Sr., GK), Greg Goldshteyn (Jr., M/D), Neel Haldar (Sr., M/F), Nick Nolan (Sr., D), Yash Pandya (Jr., M/D), Raj Patel (Jr., M/F), Matt Tan (Jr., M/F).
Outlook: With only a few starters returning from last year’s squad, the Eagles lack a lot of varsity experience. They will look upon their seniors to provide leadership to the team. Delmonaco notched six goals and four assists last season and will be relied on in the midfield.
PERTH AMBOY TECH
Head Coach: Stephen Moir, sixth season (48-43-2)
2011 record: 12-10
Top lettermen lost: Brian Zuniga (Sr., F).
Returners: Bryan Osorio (Sr., D), Oscar Jimenez (Sr., D), Milton Rendon (Sr., GK), Alex Reyes (Jr., M), Miguel Guzman (Jr., F), Gonzala Bazan (So., F), Jacob Vargas (Sr., D), Raymond Church (Sr., D).
Newcomers: Shelby Haggerty (Sr., M), Jeremy Garay (Sr., M), Jeff Reyes (Fr., M), Eduardo Tafur (Fr., D), Alex Tejada (So., M), Jodeni Diez (Sr., M), Kevin Uroza (Sr., M).
Outlook: A daunting task stands in the way of the Raiders as they must find a way to replace the 35 goals and 16 assists Zuniga contributed to the team last season. They return a solid core and should be able to remain competitive within the division.
Head Coach: William Bills, 34th season (387-141-15)
2011 record: 10-10
Returners: Brandon McGougal (Sr., F), Matt Zgorzynski (Jr., D), Luke Cruver (Jr., D), David Figueroa (Jr., D), Matt DiLeo (Jr., D), Zach Coyle (Jr., F), Evan Waldron (Jr., GK).
Newcomers: Matt Parris (Fr., F), Ben St. Jean (Sr., D), Joe Caruso (Fr., D).
Outlook: The Tigers are poised for a successful season behind a strong junior class. The defense is ready according to Bills, but the offensive players need to find their scoring stride. Expect the Tigers to be in the running for the Gold Division title.
Head Coach: Zachary Stout, second season
2011 record: 0-11-1
Returners: Grace Brennan (Sr., GK), Marcin Ciesla, Senior (Sr., D), Chris Dowling (Sr., M), Kartik Pottepalem (Jr., M).
Newcomers: Brittany Gasser (So., M), Ali-Ben-Saad (So., M), Peter Takacs (Sr., D), Justin O’Neil-Ramos (So., D), Akash Ranpura (Jr., F).
Outlook: There are a lot of unknowns for the Hornets as they begin their first season of play in the GMC after playing as an independent last season. The program lost 16 seniors to graduation and will look to Brennan and Ciesla to lead the team defensively. Dowling and Pottepalem are the two other returnees and will play an important role in the midfield.
Head Coach: Greg Grasso
2011 record: N/A
Returners/Newcomers: Brian Orellana (Fr.), Trystan Acosta (Jr.), Rafal Ciepiela (Jr.),
Erick Coronel (Jr.), Daniel Echevarria (Jr.), Chris Faria (Jr.), Michel Jean (Jr.), RJ Johns (Jr.), Juan Macedo (Jr.), Alex Pachon (Jr.), Rolando Rodriguez (Jr.), Jason Szurlej (Jr.), AlexZeno (Jr.), Andy Barcelo (Sr.), Ryan Bertani (Sr.), Adams Cesar (Sr.), Manuel Contreras (Sr.), Rafael Gabrielli (Sr.), Derrick Neves (Sr.), James Orellana (Sr.), Bryon Pena (Sr.), Christian Perez (Sr., GK), Mike Perez (Sr.), Chris Tangarife (Sr.), Frank Velez (Sr.), Daniel Viana (Sr.).
Outlook: The Tigers made a run to the semifinals of their county tournament last season. Their key returning player is Gabrielli, who finished last season with 13 goals.
Head Coach: Kevin O’Callahan, 10th season
2011 record: 12-7
Returners: Tyler Recinos (Sr., D), Dan Tobar (Sr., D), Dylan Santos (Jr., F), Charstian Chavez (Jr., D), Ben Romeo (Jr., M), Edwin Carbajal (So., M), Dan Salazar (Jr., M).
Newcomers: Javier Aguilar (So., M), Mckerlyn Vilsaint (Sr., D), Israel Cruz (Sr., D), William French (So., GK), Dan Luna (Sr., M), Giovani Aguirre (So., M).
Outlook: After a solid 12-7 season, Rahway hopes to be competitive again this year. They’ll rely on Santos, who scored 19 goals as a sophomore a year ago after notching 10 as a freshman.
