SUMMIT, NJ - Summit High School Varsity Football Team senior linebacker Liam Dougherty, captain and three-year starter, has been named to the New Jersey 'Super 100' team as sponsored by the New Jersey Football Coaches Association.

Dougherty, who will continue his football career at Bowdoin College in the fall, led the Hilltoppers in tackles each the past two season, his total of 142 tackles in 2016 setting a new school mark as he was named the team's Defensive Most Valuable Player.

The two-time All Mid-State 38 and Second-Team, All Group 4 selection, is the second Dougherty to earn the honor, following his brother Colm who was selected in 2013. He is the sixth Summit Varsity Football student-athlete to be selected for the 'Super 100' in the past four years.

"Liam is a throwback football player," said Kevin Kostibos, Summit High School Head Football Coach. "He is as tough as anyone I've coached and truly loves the sport of football. Anyone that has watched him play can see his passion for not only the game but for the maroon and white as well. No one wears the "S" bigger than Liam."

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
