4 Mounties Named in Top 100 Football Players in North Jersey List

As happens every August, newspapers and websites begin to try and predict what will happen in the 2016 High School Football season. 

On Tuesday, MSG Varsity posted their list of the Top 100 Football Players in North Jersey and four Mounties ended up on the list.

Quarterback Terrian Earle, running back/defensive back Daniel Webb, offensive lineman Owen Drexel and wide receiver/defensive back DJ Williams.

Congratulations to all four players - we're proud of you.

Go Montclair!

Happy Birthday, Coach!

Today our head coach turns <age withheld due to legal action>. 

Thanks for all you do, Coach Fiore, for the team, the school and the community!

Mounties Training Camp - Week 1

Hopefully you got your vacation out of the way and enjoyed your summer, because it's time to get to work. 

This week kicks off the Mountie Football Season, and we need everybody ready to work!

The Weight Room will be open every day from 11am-5pm. Make sure you check in and start getting yourself into shape if you haven't been going throughout the summer. 

Time to work off that ice cream and those summer burgers.

Practice this week will start at 5pm and go until approximately 8pm.

As always, the coaches can have it go long or end it a bit early - be prepared to adjust your schedules and make sure anyone giving you a ride or expecting you at a certain time is reachable.

This is where it starts, the hard work, the sweat and the effort. The payoff is a championship a few months from now. 

Let's get to it!

Go Blue!

Practice Schedule for the Week of July 25-July 29

We've got a little over a month before school, but for the Mounties, the Summer has just one more week in it.

That's because we're just one week away from training camp and the kick off of the Mounties 2016 season.

This is the last week of voluntary work. After that, it's time to grip it and rip it.

Weight Room is open Monday through Thursday from 11-5. Workouts will be available so come in any time during that span and get going.

Practice will continue to be Monday through Thursday, from 5pm to approximately 8pm. We've ended earlier more than once so if you need to arrange a ride or catch a bus, make sure you know the schedule is a bit open and be prepared to adjust accordingly.

Finally, the Mountie store is open for just one more week.

Friday is an off day this week.

Just two more weeks before training camp and then football season is finally here!

NO PRACTICE THIS WEEK - WEIGHT ROOM OPEN

We hope you had a fun and safe Fourth of July, and we want to thank those of you who came out to the Montclair Parade for making time for it.

This week is a mandatory black-out period, which means there are no practices scheduled. The weight room is open from 11am-5pm all week.

While we love to see you in the gym, we encourage you to rest, relax and take some time to enjoy the time off.

We get back to the grind next Monday.

Mountie Practice Schedule: June 27-30

Schoool's out, but that just means it's time to get to work for the Montclair Mounties Football team. Championships take hard work, and it's time to punch the clock.

This week's practice schedule looks like this:

Weight Room Open: 11am- 5PM, Monday through Thursday

Practice: 5pm-8PM, Monday through Thursday

Show up, get a workout in and then hit the practice field. Remember: sweat in the summer, championship in the fall!

 

Coach John Fiori inducted into Essex County Hall of Fame

Varsity Head Coach John Fiori has led his teams to five straight Section 1, Group 5 Championships, winning three in a row between 2012 and 2014.

Monday night, Fiori received another honor when he was inducted into the Essex County High School Hall of Fame.

We all know coach, and what he does for the kids. Not only has he (and the staff) pushed them to great heights on the field, but also helped them reach their potential off it.  

His commitment to excellence in the classroom has helped his players move on to great things once they are done with school. He has also helped over 75 players use their football skills to help them continue their education at the collegiate level.

The Mountie Family is proud of Coach Fiori and congratulate him for this great honor. 
 

Mounties Football: Important Dates

School might be wrapping up but for the Montclair Mounties football program, things are just getting started to prepare for the  2016 season.

If you or a family member are planning on playing this coming fall, here are some important dates to be aware of.

Sports Physicals (valid for 365 days - if you had one this time last year, you likely need another before camp starts)

  • PARENT OR GUARDIAN MUST BE PRESENT IN ORDER TO HAVE A PHYSICAL
  • June 6th, June 13th and June 27th
  • From 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm in the LGI of the Main Building.

Impact Test (Valid for two years)

  • Football - 3pm June 20th

You can find all required medical forms here. They must be handed in no later than July 11. If they are not you may not be able to take part in August camp as it can take up to three weeks to process the paperwork.

Forms can be submitted at the time of your physical or on June 9th, June 16th, June 30th and July 11th from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm in the LGI of the Main Building.

Other details per the Mountclair High School Athletics website:

  • History Form, Supplemental Needs (even if it is not applicable), Physical Examination and Clearance Form need to be submitted. (This applies to all 9th)
  • For 9th graders you will need to submit the signed History Form and signed Athletes with Special Needs (even if it is not applicable). Physical Examination and Clearance Form must be submitted from your last valid physical.  Bring the physical form to your Doctor to complete, if the physical was dated after August 10, 2015.  If any student’s physical is dated more than 90 days from the first day of practice, she/he must submit the Health History Questionnaire. 
  • All 10th, 11th and 12th graders; if we have a valid physical in the Nurse’s Office from last year dated after August 10, 2015, the only form you need to hand in is the Health History Questionnaire. 

We'll post more information here as you need it regarding activities, training and other team dates.

Go Mounties!

Sophomore Daniel Webb gets offer from Illinois

After a season where he ran for 1,335 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns while adding another 125 yards on seven receptions, it's no surprise that sophomore running back Daniel Webb is getting interest from FBS schools.

The University of Illinois got there first, though, as NJ.com has reported that the Fighting Illini became the first FBS school to offer a scholarship to the explosive Webb. According to NJ.com's Todderick Hunt, Webb has chiefly been recruited by tight ends/special teams coach Bob Ligashesky.

Webb's elusiveness in space, speed and ability to change direction on a dime make him an ideal candidate to return kicks at the collegiate level (he had a 93-yard kickoff return for a touchdown last season) and his explosiveness could give a team a dangerous weapon coming out of the backfield as a third-down back.

Webb has literal track speed as well, showcased as he runs the 4 X 100-meter relay, the 100-meter dash and 200 for Montclair High Schools Track and Field team.

The Mounties congratulate Daniel on the first of what we expect to be many great achievements going forward.

Go Blue!
