Nine Wayne Hills Football Players Charged with Aggravated Assault

Football players attack two Wayne Valley High School students Oct. 29, police said.

Nine football players have been charged with aggravated assault after attacking two students on Urban Club Road Saturday Oct. 29, Police Chief John Reardon said.

The players, including star senior receiver Andrew Monaghan, 18, were charged Tuesday night, Reardon said; the other eight are juveniles.

responded to a call about a loud party at about 10:20 p.m. Saturday on Urban Club Road, Reardon said. When officers arrived, they discovered the victims, one of whom was unconscious and in the street, the chief said.

The victims were taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Wayne.

Reardon said the boys were walking on Urban Club Road when the Hills students drove up in an SUV and perhaps another vehicle, got out, and assaulted the Valley students.

Wayne Hills, a seven-time state football champion, is scheduled to play Vernon in the first round of the North 1, Group 3 playoffs tomorrow night in Wayne.

Wayne Hills football coach Chris Olsen and principal Scot Beckerman could not be reached to see if the players will play in the game.

Great job caoach Olsen for adapting to the loss of 3 high impact players who had to be replaced from the 9. As far as football he gets results and reloads & adapts at the half. He teaches the kids discipline and practicing till they get it right. For all you women that dont get it and it appears some men(who are not capable of playing) too football is the most intricate sport. Players just dont go out and hit each other and tackle, it is a physical chess game. Until you learn the came please just be quiet. Now lay off Olsen, his wife, football and let the court decide to handle these 9 players. Women & Mothers on these blogs you have seen what a great coach can do. Now stop complaining and maybe you can make your husbands happy!

John M. , wow could are you trying to be obnoxious, or did you take too many hits without a helmet as you probably were capable of playing. The truth of the matter is even at Hills Olsen is a divisive figure. Get ten Hills Parents together and you'll hear stories of fights or shouting matches with other coaches, kids bullied or pushed around, scores run up,other sports mocked, favored players. Olsen's job is to be a coach and educator. He does one well the other not some much. One wonders Olsen has a reputation throughout North Jersey of running up scores. What ever started the fight it should have ended with the kids being knocked down, instead his players ran up the score and left the others badly hurt. Where did they learn that.
