Thursday Night Football Show/Condolences to Dambach Family/Tabb to Visit Iowa

September 30, 2010

Red Bank Catholic senior tight end Jack Tabb will be in the house in Iowa City on Saturday night when Penn State takes on the Hawkeyes as he is making an official visit to Iowa this weekend. The Caseys take on Long Branch at Count Basie Field on Friday night. I visited Iowa City once on one of the most epic college road trips of all time from Northwestern, taken with about 20 people in the back of an illegally rented U-Haul. Unfortunately those are about all the details I can publicly divulge, but it was something I’ll never forget. Pretty fun town, especially given the usual stereotype of Iowa as a boring Midwest place.

As for tonight, the St. Barnabas Health Care Thursday Football Show will be live from Boston’s in Toms River from 7-9 p.m., broadcasted live on the radio at 105.7 “The Hawk” f.m. and 1310 a.m. as well as streamed live on your computer at http://www.1057thehawkfm.com. Matt Harmon and Ed Sarluca will be running the show without maestro Kevin Williams, who is probably flying to Iowa to intervene in Tabb’s visit and convince him to come to Penn State.

Guests include Matawan head coach Joe Martucci at 7:15 p.m., myself at 7:26 p.m., Toms River North head coach Chip LaBarca Jr. and senior quarterback Demetri Davis live on location from 7:45-8 p.m., Monmouth University head coach Kevin Callahan at 8:05 p.m., Howell head coach Cory Davies and his son, prolific junior quarterback Ryan Davies, at 8:18, the Asbury Park Press’s Rob Ziegler at 8:45, and then Ed and Matt’s picks of the big games in Week 4 to close the show. Always worth checking out.

Howell, which has a big game against Middletown South at home on Friday night in Class A North, has endured yet another heart-wrenching loss. Mark Dambach, the father of senior starting linebacker Ryan Dambach and sophomore lacrosse player Alec Dambach, died at 47 years old on Tuesday. Our condolences from everyone here at ASM to the Dambach family, and from everything I’ve heard about Mark, he was a beloved Pop Warner coach in Howell who also had coached Little League.

This is the latest tragedy the Rebels football community has gone through, as 2010 graduate John Bukowiec died in a car accident in late July, and former quarterback Bobby Dierolf died of a heart attack at 27 years old earlier in July.

A pair of the Shore Conference’s star tight ends, Point Boro’s Ryan Malleck and Red Bank Catholic’s Jack Tabb, along with Northwestern-bound Raritan lineman Shane Mertz and Rutgers-bound Neptune running back/defensive back Charles Davis, have been selected to play for the North team in the inaugural Chesapeake Bowl in Maryland on Dec. 30. The North team will consist of players from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, and will face a South team made up of players from Maryland, Washington, D.C., West Virginia and Virginia.

Adding extra meaning to it is that Malleck is a University of Maryland recruit. Click here for more.

Scott Meeker Out 2-3 Weeks for Midd. South, Furlong Out 2 Weeks for Raritan

Middletown South senior quarterback Scott Meeker will be out 2-3 weeks because of a partially fractured fibula in his left leg suffered early in a 17-0 win over Freehold Township this past Friday, according to Eagles head coach Steve Antonucci. That means back-up Howie Brey, a junior who played extensively in the Freehold Township game and has seen snaps in other games, will step in for Meeker, who had eight touchdown passes and also ran for a touchdown in the Eagles’ first two games before getting hurt.

Another significant injury this past weekend was Raritan senior wide receiver/safety Kevin Furlong, who suffered a high ankle sprain in the Rockets’ loss to Matawan and will be out for two weeks, according to Raritan coach Anthony Petruzzi. That means he will miss A Central games vs. St. John Vianney and Red Bank. He scored Raritan’s only touchdown in the 45-6 loss to Matawan and had three interceptions and the game-winning touchdown catch a week earlier against Manasquan.

Here is some extra stuff from this weekend and some thoughts/extras on some Week 3 games.

—Red Bank Catholic senior tight end Jack Tabb, who caught the game-winning touchdown pass with 12 seconds left in a 14-7 win over Neptune last week, will not be attending this weekend’s big SEC match-up between Alabama and Arkansas on an official recruiting visit to Arkansas, according to RBC coach Jim Portela. (This is RBC’s bye week).  Tabb will instead be taking an official visit to Boston College, which signed former Barnegat star tight end Jarrett Darmstatter from last year’s senior class.

In case you missed it this summer, you can read about Tabb’s backstory here.

Also, check out this recent video feature done on Tabb by Prep Ticket. If you have Pat Summerall doing voiceovers in features about you, you’re definitely doing something right.

Tabb will also be on the radio on Thursday night as part of the St. Barnabas Health Care High School Football show from 7-9 p.m. on 105.7 “The Hawk” f.m. and 1310 a.m. Tabb will be calling in at 7:15 p.m. You can also stream the show live on your computer at http://www.1057thehawkfm.com. Other guest include Brick Memorial head coach Walt Currie, Pinelands head coach Sean DeRosa, Monmouth University head coach Kevin Callahan, either Steve Falk or Rob Ziegler of The Asbury Park Press, and I will be doing a spot as well starting at 7:26 p.m., so make sure to check it out.

Taking unofficial visits to UConn this weekend will be RBC junior defensive tackle Joe Coscarelli, who had 15 tackles and a forced fumble in the win over Neptune, as well as junior fullback/linebacker Chris Donald. Both were invited by the UConn staff to attend the UConn-Buffalo game, according to Portela. Obviously, there is a connection between UConn and RBC because of former Caseys star running back Donald Brown, who went on to become a standout at UConn and was a first-round draft pick of the Indianapolis Colts in 2009.

RBC-Neptune Thriller Highlights Friday Action

September 18, 2010

While the featured game of the night between Red Bank Catholic and Neptune in Class B North was ugly and penalty-filled for much of the way, the ending sure delivered.

You can read the game story about the heroics of Jack Tabb and Ryan Spahr and the great play of RBC’s defense by clicking here, and here are some extras from the evening:

—The game was sloppy for both sides, with a combined 21 penalties for 156 yards, and many of them were costly, from the two that cost Neptune some field position near the end when it had to punt to RBC for the final drive, and one that really hurt Neptune before the half. Jaheem Woods hit David Gutzmore on a rollout and it would have been first-and-goal from the 3-yard line, but an illegal shift wiped out a 27-yard gain and the ultimate result was Neptune having to try an unsuccessful Hail Mary pass at the end of the first half.

“In my heart, and I’m sure (Neptune) coach (Don) Sofilkanich will tell you the same thing, I don’t feel like we played our best game,” said RBC coach Jim Portela. “I feel like this was a big match-up in the early season when teams don’t necessarily play their best, but we’ll get better.”
