Schork also mentioned that he loved the look and feel of the campus. 

"They had a beautiful football field. The campus was nice. It was country-ish," added Schork. 

This past season, Cranford football finished 6-4 and made it to the North Jersey Section 2, Group 4 semifinals before falling to Phillipsburg 21-0. A two-way player at tight end and defensive end, Schork also saw some reps at running back when starter Jimmy Shriner missed time due to injury. In total, Schork rushed 67 attempts for 442 yards and three touchdowns while also catching eight passed for 94 yards and two touchdowns. On defense, he had four sacks, 40 tackles, a fumble recovery, and an interception. 

Of all his memories, Schork said this year's 25-12 comeback victory over Summit on Senior Night was his favorite. Schork registered seven tackles and a fumble recovery in the game.

When asked what lessons from playing in high school that he will take to college, Schork credited his head coach Erik Rosenmeier for teaching him to have a good work ethic and to be the best he could possibly be.
