Rutgers to host high school football tripleheader

By is partner of USA TODAY High School Sports

Rutgers’ High Point Stadium will host a high school football tripleheader on Oct. 29, featuring six top teams from the Garden State.

Kicking-off the event will be 2015 Central Jersey Group 5 semifinalist Manalapan taking on Piscataway.  Manalapan will be led by senior-to-be quarterback Luke Corcione, who the team to the sectional semis last year.  Piscataway returns running back Elijah Barnwell, who ran for more than 1,700 yards as a junior.

The middle game of the tripleheader will be St. Peter’s Prep (Jersey City) taking on Lincoln (Jersey City).  The game may give Rutgers fans a sneak peak of a future Scarlet Knight quarterback.  St. Peter’s senior-to-be QB Johnathan Lewis recently gave his verbal commitment to the Scarlet Knights.

The day will close out with DePaul (Wayne) squaring off with Pope John XXIII (Sparta).  Defensive tackle Dayin Wade-Perry is one of five New Jersey players in the 2017 ESPN 300.
