The North Jersey Chapter of the New Jersey Football Officials Association awarded the Livingston High School Varsity Football Team with the 2010 Sportsmanship Award.

The NJFOA is a professional organization dedicated to training football officials for New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association games.  The rules for high school football are very different than those of the NCAA or the NFL making the NJFOA’s role critical.

This award is a testament to the growth of the team and positive effect the coaching staff has had.  Student-athletes at Livingston High School not only work hard to enhance their skills on the field, but they are taught about the importance of sportsmanship and are expected to hold sportsmanship in the highest regard.  “This recognition by the NJFOA is not only a team accomplishment, but an accomplishment of the community that supports its student-athletes,” said Athletic Director Patrick Genova.
