Washington State coach Mike Leach had some interesting comments on his radio show last week that portrayed high school football in New Jersey negatively. Coaches in the Garden State, unsurprisingly, haven’t taken kindly to Leach’s words.
From Braulio Perez of NJ Advance Media:
“One year we went to New York and New Jersey,” Leach said. “Basically, New Jersey has good players, but bad football. They got a lot of people and some of them can play, but overall, my opinion, they start the season late and end it early.
“Statistically, they send a lot of players to the NFL. They tend to have smaller schools population wise. There’s a bunch of teams I could play on.”
Perez talked to multiple high school coaches, who voiced annoyances with the Cougars’ head man. One of them even offered to get together five of the top New Jersey teams and play the top five from Washington on Sept. 5.
Obviously, this probably wont’ happen, but would you like to see it happen? What five teams from Washington would you want to see play?
