The "Super 100 Team" recognizes the top senior class football players and head coaches in the state. The NJFCA was established in 1984 with a purpose to maintain the highest possible standards in football and in the profession of coaching football; to promote the highest level of interscholastic competition and to honor the young men who play this great game.

"Kevin is a prime example of how perfecting a craft will open doors that no one ever expected to be opened," said Kostibos. "When Penn State Coach James Franklin is sitting in your office talking about how excited he is for Kevin to get up on campus and get going, you know you have a special kid."
