Paramus Catholic, ranked #21 in the latest High School Football America Top 25, beat St. Peter’s Prep 33-28 Friday night at MetLife Stadium to capture the New Jersey Non-Public Group 4 state championship, the school’s first since winning back-to-back titles in 2012 and 2013. It was quite a turnaround for first-year head coach Dan Sabella‘s team. Last season, Paramus Catholic missed the postseason with a 3-6 record.
