CHATHAM, NJ - Chatham football coach Jason Izsa was named the recipient of the New York Jets High School Coach of the Week award, which is sponsored by Chase.

"I told the guy who called, it's a slow day in high school football coaching if you're giving me this award," Izsa said. "I asked him if there was anybody else he could give it to.

"It's a great honor. I just look at some of the other guys I coach against and wonder how some of them don't have this award. I appreciate it. I feel a little humble being with these other guys who have won it."

The Chatham football program will receive $2,000 for the award and coach Izsa will receive a certificate and an award ball. Izsa is invited to watch the Dec. 21 Jets-Patriots game in Chase's suite at MetLife Stadium.

"My girlfriend is a Jets fan and they're playing the Patriots," Izsa said. "It should be a good game to see."

According to the press release put out by the Jets, "The award, in its 19th year, is given to coaches in the tristate area who serve the best interests of the game through the teaching of sound football fundamentals, the motivation of young players to achieve, and the promotion of youth football by way of dedication to their communities, their schools and their student-athletes."

Izsa gained notice from the Jets after Chatham's 33-0 victory over High Point last Friday, which snapped the school's 23-game gridiron losing streak.

Imagine a Chatham Toboggan Ride from the Top of Fairmount Avenue to Main Street

Did you know….
there was a time when Chatham kids could ice skate from downtown Chatham all the way to Florham Park? And that a toboggan ride could last from the top of Fairmount Avenue down to Main Street and beyond?

Those were the days!

This was back in the early to mid-1900s. The Passaic River meandered through grassy meadows and woods on the north side of Chatham. The marshy ...
