The Wayne Township Council honored the DePaul Catholic High School Football team this week with a proclamation recognizing its accomplishments this past season.
The Big Green captured the NJSIAA Non-Public Group 2 Title by beating Holy Spirit 25-16 in a championship game in December.
The win marked the first state title for the school in football since 1992, and only the third overall in school history.
Ward 4 Councilman Joseph Scuralli, a DePaul grad, presented the award, noting that the team was able to win thanks to a “roster exploding with skill, superior speed, and talent.”
Coach John McKenna thanked the council for the honor.
“I am so proud of [the team]. Football is a year-round commitment and these guys put in the work…It’s been a great year at DePaul.”
