Hopewell Valley Set to Host Spring Showcase for Football Recruits
May 06, 2017
Dave Caldwell has done well over the past five years with the Hopewell Valleyfootball team, including winning an NJSIAA sectional title.
Now the Bulldogs head coach wants to bring his brand of success to players from all over the East Coast.
Hopewell Valley will play host to the Spring Showcase NJ on Saturday from 4-10 p.m. There will be a college fair, combine testing, position specific drill work and competitions for the players in attendance.
It will be the first time Caldwell has hosted the event, but he hopes this is just the beginning of a successful yearly camp.
"The mission of the NJ Spring Showcase is to bring together college programs that actively recruit New Jersey and high school prospects (ninth through 11th grades) from around the state, to one central location," Caldwell said. "The purpose of this showcase is to maximize both the colleges' ability to evaluate a number of prospects in a single location and to increase the exposure opportunities for high school prospects.
Hopewell Valley’s Ben Schutsky, Pennington’s Tony Morency are Next Scholars Up
March 03, 2017
Ben Schutsky and Tony Morency are each kept pretty busy with athletics. Throw in their academic workload and it doesn’t give either much time to enjoy an ice cream cone at Uncle Ed’s Creamery, located directly between their two schools on Delaware Avenue in Pennington.
But they still have some pretty sweet achievements when it comes to sports and education.
The Pennington School’s Morency and Hopewell Valley Central High’s Schutsky will be awarded for their excellence on and off the gridiron as their respective schools’ honorees at the 55th Annual George Wah Scholar-Leader-Athlete Awards Dinner.
