NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ – The New Providence High School football team will open its varsity season on Thursday, Sept. 12 at home against Brearley of Kenilworth.

The Pioneers are coming off an 8-3 season under head coach Joe Carollo. They reached the second round of the NJSIAA Section 2, Group 1 playoffs, where they lost to Roselle Park—the team which handed New Providence two of its three losses in 2012.

Junior quarterback Jack Harvey and halfback/linebacker C.J. Kliesch are among the players who’ll help steer the team’s “spin” offense, often run out of the shotgun formation.
