Three senior football players from Brentwood High School were named academic all-state.
The postseason recognition continues for Brentwood football players, who fought to a successful 10-2 season this past fall. Seniors Nick Featherston, David Rivera and Evan Sigler were named academic all-state. "We talk a lot about trying to excel in all areas of your life," said Coach Keith Herring in a Tuesday email to Patch. "Not only is school the most important aspect of being a student/athlete, but it will have an effect on your performance on the field. If you are not handling your business in an area such as academics, relationships and citizenship, it will creep into the athletic area in a negative manner." For Rivera, who played as a lineman on both sides of the ball, the awards keep piling on. He made 3rd Team Defensive Line on…

Brentwood and Maplewood Richmond Heights have their first round district games at the same time. Help Patch decide how to cover them.
On Friday Brentwood football plays Principia, and Maplewood Richmond Heights plays Cleveland NJROTC in first-round district play. Both games are at home at 7 p.m. Unfortunately there's only one Patch editor to cover both games. Here's how it works: I'll go to the first half of one game and the second half of the other. That way both teams get a half's worth of photos. The thing is, the team that gets me the second half will get better game coverage because I'll be there in the end to interview the coach, and there's a better chance I'll get stats. So, instead of your Patch editor making the decision it's up to you. Vote below, and which ever team get's the most, by 4 p.m. on Friday, that's the way it will be. Thanks! And see you Friday …
