It happened a lot last off-season and it looks like the trend is starting again.  

What trend?

Former NFL players returning to the roots of the game by becoming head football coaches at the high school level.

The latest, according to a report in the Star-Ledger, is NFL veteran wide receiver Irving Fryar, who reportedly will become the head coach at Robbinsville High School in New Jersey.  NJ.com reportsthat Fryar, who played at 17-years in the NFL, will probably be announced as the school's new head coach in January, replacing Jason Gray, who resigned at the end of the regular season after seven years at the Ravens' head coach.

Gray, who started the Robbinsville program, retired with a 27-41 overall record.

Fryar is a New Jersey native, having played at Rancocas Valley before playing his college ball at theUniversity of Nebraska.  In 1984, Fryar was the NFL's #1 draft pick.

Fryar retired in 2000 with 851 catches for nearly 13,000 yards and 84 touchdowns.

North Bergen Stripped of 2011 High School Football Title

by Jeff Fisher
High School Football America

Recruiting will not be allowed in New Jersey.  That's the message that the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association sent to schools through the state Thursday when it stripped North Bergen of its 2011 sectional football championship.

Last month, the NJSIAA placed the school's entire sports program on two years probation after the state's governing body found that the school's longtime football coach Vincent Ascolese had recruited two players to play for the Bruins.  However, that ruling didn't include the stripping of the North Jersey 1, Group 4 title the team won in a 14-13 victory over Montclair when North Bergen scored a touchdown on the very last play of the game.

Thursday, the NJSIAA's executive committee voted 24-0 in favor of taking away the title, which marks what many believe is the first time that the state has every stripped a school of a championship.

Ascolese, who is currently battling cancer, retired at the end of the year as one of the state's winningest coaches.

Before the investigation began earlier this year, I spoke to Coach Ascolese about his long career in New Jersey football.

Garden State to Crown Four More Football Champs in 2012

by Jeff Fisher
High School Football America

The New Jersey Interscholastic Athletic Association voted against a statewide playoff system last year, but on Wednesday it decided to add a fifth classification to its public school football playoffs.

The NJSIAA executive committee voted 21-5 with three abstentions to expand the number of sectional football champions from 20 to 24 by adding a Group V classification.  The vote means that 32 additional teams will make the playoffs in 2012.

The new classification means that each section will be reduced to about 15 teams from the current 19.  The NJSIAA also passed a rule allowing teams with a record below .500 to be eligible to fill remaining postseason openings based on power points.

The non-public playoffs will remain unchanged for the time being, although a proposal is in the works to change the non-public format as well.

North Bergen Investigated for Recruiting Players

by Jeff Fisher
High School Football America

The Montclair Times is reporting that an investigative report in Sunday's Star-Ledger is leading to the New Jersey Interscholastic Athletic Association investigating allegations that 2011 state sectional champ North Bergen recruited players.

North Bergen beat previously unbeaten Montclair 14-13 to win the North Jersey I Group 4 title in December.  It was a memorable game because it ended when North Bergen's Debray Tavarez caught a 22-yard touchdown pass as time expired.

It was the final game of head coach Vince Ascolese's 50-year career that saw him retire as the state's third winningest head coach with a record of 359-128-7.

Publish reports indicate that two of Ascolese's players will be looked at during the investigation by the NJSIAA.  The Star-Ledger is also reporting that the North Bergen School District has retained a law firm in the case.

If North Bergen is found guilty, it could be stripped of the title.

Coach Ascolese was a guest on the High School Football America radio show before the allegations broke.  Click here to listen to the interview detailing his career.
