CHATHAM, NJ - When Jason Izsa said that the selection of his starting quarterback was going to be a "game-time decision," he wasn't kidding.

Chatham's new head football coach waited until 1:45 p.m. on Thursday to tell senior Sean Landofli that he will get the start over sophomore Alex Sands for the 4 p.m. kickoff at Cougar Field against visiting Montville.

Landolfi will run the first series of the game for Chatham, which is unveiling its new Delaware Wing T offense. Sands, however, will be waiting in the wings and is likely to get his chance to call the quarterback signals as well, according  to Izsa.

Chatham's old offense - the triple option - will be run by the opposition, led by last year's Chatham head coach, Don Morgenroth. In his four years, Morgenroth guided the Cougars into the playoffs twice. But Chatham was 0-10 last year and has lost 11 straight, dating back to 2011.

To the Editor,

I told my daughter I needed to write about gun violence. Know what she told me? “Mom, be sure you’re not too polarizing. People won’t listen.” She’s right. At age eleven she’s figured out that we adults need to be reminded how to speak to one another in order to fix a problem. But I have hope and belief that we can fix that discourse in our ...
