About

A Few Good Men is all about transforming our region’s student athletes into the total package. New Jersey has had the good fortune of seeing many of our state’s football players go on to college to play the game they love and some have even gone on to the professional ranks. But A Few Good Men is not satisfied with simply producing good players. We want New Jersey to be known for producing good men.

A Good Man is not only a football player; he is a leader; he is a student and an ambassador representing the character, values and way of life that when emulated by others, makes the world a better place.

A FEW GOOD MEN 2015 AWARD WINNERS

Position: QB

In a few sentences describe what it means to be a good teammate.
A good teammate is someone who does whatever it takes to help the entire team be successful. They do whatever job given to them by the coach and try their best to be the best at it. A good teammate doesn’t let good be good enough for him or for the rest of the team. He works hard and shows an example for the rest of the team to follow.


In a few sentences describe what made your team special this season
My team really came together this season. We had a lot of pieces that needed fit together for us to have a successful season. With help from our head coach Preston Brown and the rest of our amazing coaching staff we pulled off a season unseen at Woodrow Wilson for a long time. However, what was really special about our team was their ability to conquer the plethora of challenges that was put on front of them. Starting in the summer to our last game in November my team continued to fight and hunger to get better. They fought against the trash talking and doubt everyone presented us. Just as my coach used to say when we would huddle up after practice or before a game no one believed in us outside of our circle. It was our job to teach them to believe again.


What has been your favorite volunteer experience thus far?
My favorite volunteer experience would have to be when I coached a flag football team last year. I was used to being a player but I learned that coaching was a whole different beast. I can’t truly say that I totally understand how my high school coaches feel but I know how it feels to lead and be responsible for the success of others. Watching my athletes play, I wished I could step on the field and play with them. It was still a rewarding experience to even able to have the chance to coach any type of football team. I am currently coaching a team now as well


What is the best advice you’ve ever received from a coach/teacher?
The best advice I’ve ever received from a coach is to just “play how you know how to play”. I have had three very important coaches say this to me a number of times/. This is a consistent message. It shows me just how much trust they really have in my skills. Trust is something hard to come by these days and to know I have these coaches in my corner no matter how life plays out is a comforting feeling. If they can believe in my skills that strongly then I should believe in my skills just as strong.

 

What is your favorite quote or verse from the bible?
1st Corinthians 13:13 “And now these three things remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” To be a successful team you have to love the game more than life itself. One of my coach’s tells me all the time that for me to make it through college football I have to really “love the game”. Every time he tells me that I have to sit back and really think about if I do “love the game”. I’ve played football for just about twelve years including this year. I’ve been through a lot of teams and a lot of coaches. I can count on one hand how many coaches truly gave me the chance to show what I could do on the football field. If I didn’t love the game I would have quit a long time ago. Not everybody would continue on with football after all that I’ve been through but football is the sport I love. I’m not letting anyone take that away from me.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received from a coach/teacher?

The best advice that I have received from a coach was to be a "coach-able athlete". Coach Hinson stresses the importance of being a coachable player and doing the right things.

What is your favorite quote or verse from the bible?

Position: WR/K

In a few sentences describe what it means to be a good teammate.
A good teammate is someone who demonstrates leadership and character throughout their time with the team. A good teammate persists to augment the success of others on the team, not persisting to degrade it and indulge in the unproductive effects of jealousy. Our coaches always tell us that as teammates, yelling something like, “C’mon, why didn't you make that play?” isn't our job and that it isn't going to help anyone. A good teammate always looks to be selfless and towards the betterment of the team.


In a few sentences describe what made your team special this season
We had a lot of new guys come in this year and we didn't know if we would all work well together. We also lost a lot of seniors last year and the presence of leadership and maturity on the team was questioned. Although we struggled through these problems, we came out strong and won large majority of our games. In the end it wasn't necessarily guys playing for themselves, rather it was a whole team who won and lost together. We are conference champions and we overcame the words of the haters.


What has been your favorite volunteer experience thus far?
My favorite volunteer experience was working the annual Buddy Walk for Down Syndrome in the fall for eight hours. I set up and cleaned up, but the most enjoyable part was running the fishbowl station that I was at. After the walk, the kids got to play games; the game that I was at gave out goldfish to the winners. It put a smile on my face to be able to see those kids with down syndrome receive a goldfish for their efforts in the game and to know that I was a help.


What is the best advice you’ve ever received from a coach/teacher?
The best advice I've received was from Coach Madeira. He always says, “You are who you are when nobody's looking.” I really like that because you can get as far as you want on the football field, but if you’re a lazy, inconsiderate jerk, then no one will respect you in life. You can impress who you want and lie to everyone, but you can't lie to yourself.

 

What is your favorite quote or verse from the bible?
My favorite Bible verse is James 1:12. It reads, “blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.” It really represents the religious and humanistic values and goals that I wish to achieve throughout my life; it gives me hope for the future.

A FEW GOOD MEN 2014 AWARD WINNERS

Position: SS/LB/RB

In a few sentences describe what it means to be a good teammate.
Being a good teammate means you have the ability to carry your teammates and encourage them. Individually each player in theory fights for one another. It is our duty as teammates and comrades to lift each other up when we are down. It’s important that the guy next to you in the huddle or in the locker room is your brother. You are your brother’s keeper on the field and off.


In a few sentences describe what made your team special this season
My team was very optimistic no matter the circumstances we came across. We pushed through adversity day in and day out and still managed to have fun. Each individual on the team had something to prove and that contributed to any success we might’ve had. Regardless of our record or who we played, we competed. Despite our record we found a way to sneak in the playoffs and put up a fight against one of the best teams in the state (Timber Creek). I believe things happen for a reason and god gave us an amazing opportunity that I enjoyed thoroughly.


What has been your favorite volunteer experience thus far?
I enjoy working as a volunteer at St. Matthews Baptist Church in Williamstown, New Jersey.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received from a coach/teacher?
The best advice I received from one of my coaches is to be confident in everything you do. No matter the challenge or situation he preached I must go into it with a high head and an optimistic mind set. He also reminded me that fear is an illusion and is the only thing that can hinder me from reaching and meeting my goals. He used to say “go into the fire with your sword drawn”. That statement affected me because it meant that whatever troubles that are in front of me I must confront them head on with no fear, to use the weapons of strength, intelligence, and passion to hurdle over any obstacle. These principles have surely helped me for the better.

I also attended several camps over the summer to improve my Linebacker skills.

 

What is your favorite quote or verse from the bible?
First Peter chapter 5, verse 6 “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.” In this verse I learned that humbleness is a sign of true leadership, and confidence. At the end of the day GOD, is the one that is going to bless you not anyone else.


A FEW GOOD MEN 2013 AWARD WINNERS

Grade: Junior
Position: LB

A Good teammate is not just an on the field thing. It is an off the field thing too. A good teammate takes the time to know you well enough to help you get to the next level in your performance. A good teammate doesnʼt let you give up and throw away opportunities. A good teammate will let you shine even if they personally get nothing out of it. Being a good teammate means giving up your time and energy to let others know youʼll be there for them when needed, not for another win together, but because itʼs the right thing to do.”


Clayton Football was special this season because of the dedication and enthusiasm shown by our team. Clayton is a small town so we donʼt get the crowds that some of the other high school teams attract. Our 3-0 start this season led to a lot of excitement for this area though and we were grateful.”


My favorite volunteer experience to date was volunteering for the National Honor Society turkey drive. We collected turkeys for families in need and those who are homeless in our community that would have likely gone without a Thanksgiving meal.”


The best advice Iʼve received was from Coach Bowen. I recall him telling me, “I might not be the best player on the team but I owed the team my best every day.” That challenged and inspired me to give my best no matter what it was, from running sprints to getting on my gear, I gave my best effort.”

Grade: Senior
Position: DB

A Good Teammate puts others before himself. He is more aware of the name on the front of his jersey than the one on the back. A good teammate realizes putting others before himself creates the bond and chemistry that brings out the best in everyone.”

Timber Creek Football was special for me this season because it was like a second family. We were hungry to win and had the desire to carry the tradition of our program. Being a part of this team influenced me to push even harder in what God has called me to do in life, beyond football.”

The best advice Iʼve received was from Coach Hinson. He taught me to always be hungry. He taught that life on and off the field is about preparation. I learned a host of other things from my teammates that they learned from our coaching staff. Each of those learning experiences has made me a better man and Timber Creek a better team.

My favorite verse from the bible is Proverbs 3:14, “Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that gets understanding.”

Grade: Senior
Position: DB

“One may say a great teammate is someone who can play the game well, but I say it's all about understanding your teammates. Itʼs about knowing what they strive to accomplish, what the game means to them, and helping to push them along and hold them accountable. A good teammate is not only a leader who demonstrates good sportsmanship, but one who sets an example for teammates and everyone else they encounter.”

 

Winslow Football was special this season because our team came together. No matter if it was a win or a loss we learned to stick together and finish strong. After this season, I feel like Winslow Township Football is turning things around and making our approach to football not just for sport, but a lifestyle.”

 

My favorite volunteer experience to date was when our high school team united with the Winslow Township Maulers (youth football program) for a day of training together. During this volunteer event, we showed the younger players how we ran our practice and taught them how to train. To this day when I see one of those youth program players, they are excited to see me as If I was already an NFL superstar. The day really positively impacted them and planted the seeds for a new football tradition in Winslow.”

 

The best advice Iʼve received from someone would have to be from Officer Mike OʼRourke when he told me, "You have the chance to be great!" Those words pushed me in practice, the classroom and at home to be different. He believed in me and knew I had the potential to be the one to make a positive change.”

 

My favorite verse from the bible is Proverbs 16:9, "The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps." This verse is my guide through everyday obstacles. I choose what I want to accomplish and with the Lordsʼ help, He walks me safely through the ditches that try to stop me from the goals I set both long and short term.
