WARREN, NJ - Sunday is reserved for the NFL, Saturday for college football, but Friday night is when the lights shine on High School football teams in America. At Watchung Hills, those lights will be shining brighter. 

New Watchung Hills Head Football Coach Mike Katz has a dream and he is instilling that dream, and a reason to believe in themselves and their successes, in his players and in the players that are soon to follow in their footsteps.

On an August night two weeks ago, Coach Katz invited players from the Junior Warriors and Pop Warner football teams to interact with the Watchung Hills Warriors' football team. Running through drills, learning skills, and working together as one team showing the young players that High School football is the destination they want to achieve.

Split into groups, the group of 165 young athletes moved through stations where tackling, running, passing, and catching were taught by the WHRHS football players. Head Coach Mike Katz stated: “This is not the Warrior program from past years! We are a new improved and dedicated program working to be the best."

The evidence was in the smiles on the faces of the WHRHS football players instilling  Warrior pride in the young players.


The Warrior’s first home game is September 11 where the team will be selling commemorative  t-shirts and donating monies to the Wounded Warrior Foundation. Come out and support the team.
