Hello Wildcats family,
Week 2 Recap
After terrible weather in week 1 we had a perfect Sunday as our Wildcats travelled down to Flemington. Another successful weekend for our squads, as we left with 3 wins and a tie.
Our 5th grade team started bright and early Sunday morning winning a shootout 24-22, a very high scoring and exciting game for 5th graders as our crew moves to 2-0. Our 6th grade team followed them in a semifinals rematch from a year ago, two of the stronger teams on that level played to a 6-6 tie. The 7th graders then bounced back from a week 1 loss scoring on their first two possessions and then letting the defense take over in a 13-0 shutout victory to get their first win of the season. Our 8th grade team made it 12 wins in a row with a 35-0 victory, before our 4th graders closed the day with a "win" of their own.
It is easy to get wrapped up in wins and losses (and it's always fun to win) but development and fun remain our number one goal as a program, and we will continue to stress that across all levels.
Also, a big thanks to our amazing Cheerleaders...they are doing a great job and get better every week!! The atmosphere is so much better when our cheerleaders are there cheering us on.

Flag Football - Friday Night Lights/Bake and Coffee Sale
What a start to Friday Night Lights!! Twice as many flag teams this year, Cornine was packed on Friday night. Was awesome to see the future of the Wildcats on the game field and all the great families there supporting them. Also, for the first time since we implemented Friday Night Lights, we had cheerleaders there and it made the night that much better.
Friday nights are also Bake Sale nights as the Wildcats love to support the Morristown Schools. Frelinghuysen Middle School will be hosting this week's bake sale, and they are adding coffee sales to the mix this week. So please bring some cash to enjoy some treats and a hot cup of coffee and support a good cause!
Our K/1 Flag program is also rolling along, I look forward to getting to Lidgerwood soon to see the youngest Wildcats!!
Vote for Jasiah Brown Player of the Week
Jasiah Brown (Soph at MHS) has been nominated for the Morris/Sussex HS Football Player of the Week. Jasiah played 9 years with the Wildcats (K flag through 8th grade), and was on the first flag team I ever coached. Jasiah and many other ex Wildcats are flourishing as Morristown High School is off to its best start in years. Let's all vote for Jasiah at the link below and bring that honor home to Morristown.
As always a huge thanks to all our coaches, they truly are the best in the league, and of course the best fans out there. Let's keep it rolling this weekend!!

Not sure where to begin, after more than 4 months the Wildcats season has come to a close and it did so in great fashion yesterday in Old Bridge.
Huge congratulations to our 5th and 7th grade teams for winning their respective Super Bowls. Our 5th grade team beat Chatham 18-0 and a few hours later our 7th took home the title with a 12-7 comeback victory over Old Bridge. This is the first time the Wildcats have ever won two Super Bowls in the same season, quite an accomplishment (only town with multiple Super Bowls). Our 7th grade team finishes a perfect 10-0 and our 5th grade team closed the season on an 8 game winning streak ending it with a shutout in the Super Bowl! All 7 of our teams had something to be proud of this year, it truly was our best season yet.
Like I have said all along it is great to win but there is just so much more than just winning to be proud of right now with the Wildcats. Huge crowds at the game yesterday and all season, our awesome cheerleaders, our huge number of participants, our Friday Night Light flag games, and our great coaches and players. We truly are a family and it showed all season.
So many people to thank, most notably my VP Ryan Flynn, I don't think anyone realizes how much Ryan does for our program. He is there every minute I am and more. Thanks to all our tackle, flag, and cheer coaches, it is a HUGE time commitment and you ALL do an amazing job. Thanks to our amazing fans, no other town even comes close the gameday experience we have at Cornine, we even bring it better than anyone else when on the road. Just a big thanks to everyone who is a part of this program top to bottom. We have only begun to get where I think we can, and I look forward to future with all of you!
We will now take a few weeks off but we will be in touch in early 2023 with updates and news.
All the best and on last time Go Wildcats!!
