The Star Worth a Thousand Points

On February 14, 2018, the Nutley High School Varsity Basketball team played against Cedar Grove High School. Tensions were rising this day because it was Senior Night for NHS, and Matt Schettino had the opportunity to score 1,000 points. Scoring 1,000 points is a huge honor to achieve for a high school basketball player, and Matt would have the chance to do it on such an important day.

New York Jets' Free Agency: Sports Column

The New York Jets ended the 2017 regular season 5-11. They have the thirrd pick in the NFL draft and over $90 million in cap space. They have many holes in the team, but the biggest hole is the quarterback position. They are going to continue being mediocre until they find the guy that can lead the team. They don’t have a quarterback for the future. Over the past few years they have used bridge guys to fill the spot. They drafted Mark Sanchez, Geno Smith, Bryce Petty, Christian Hackenberg, signed Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh McCown and none of them got the Jets to the next step.
