Hackettstown looking to take the next step (NJ)

Joey Andes is now entering his fourth year as a starter on both the offensive and defensive lines for Hackettstown without yet being a part of a team that has finished over the .500 mark.

The Tigers have been the epitome of decent over that time, finishing right around that .500 level each of those seasons, including going 5-5 last year.

Andes is looking for Hackettstown to push over that mark in the final shot for him and his senior teammates.

“Being around a 5-5 team since I was a freshman, I’m just hoping to do better than that and advance in the playoffs,” Andes said.

“It would mean everything to me. It’s the dream to get a ring on your finger, right? You have to do the best you can to get as far as you can.”

To be able to take that next step, many of the Hackettstown players agreed that they had to do one thing better: finish games. If a couple of close games had gone the other way for Hackettstown last year, it would have achieved that winning season.

Two double overtime losses last season — a 15-14 loss at home against Newton on Oct. 21 and a 13-10 defeat at Warren Hills on Nov. 4 — were the difference between a winning season for the Tigers and potentially getting a higher playoff seed to be better positioned to be able to do some damage.

With Hackettstown’s ball control, triple option attack on offense and very good defense, many games this upcoming season could very well come down to similar situations.
