CHATHAM, NJ - The weather made it feel like a perfect September day when new head coach Jason Izsa ran the team through drills with just helmets and no padding on Wednesday, Aug. 14 at Cougar Field. It was the team's second day of practice.

Chatham opens its season on Thursday, Sept. 12 against Montville High, which is now headed by last year's Chatham coach Don Morgenroth. It's early and Izsa is still looking for a quarterback to engineer the Delaware Wing Team offense he's installing this fall.
