Two years after making its full-league season debut, the D-E Ultimate Team had its best year yet, placing 5th in the New Jersey High School Boys Division I after a 20-5 season. According to Coach Mike Bell, “This was our strongest season to date, having placed 10th last year and 2nd in Division 2, and 14th in 2013.”
The team, which refers to itself as The Plastic Bulldogs, attended the 2015 New Jersey High School Boys Division I State Championship as the #5 seed in late May. “The boys played very hard… and came within one point of taking down the #4 seed, West Windsor South, who won the game in overtime at 12-13,” noted Coach Bell. “We went 3-3 in the tournament and ‘ultimately’ (pardon the pun) finished fifth in the state.”
“Captain Jacob Snyder ’15 set a new record for touchdowns scored in one season, 50,” Coach Bell added. “He was the previous record holder, scoring 48 in 2014.”
With their 24-member team made up of a good mix of freshman, sophomores, and juniors, we look forward to future successes from the Plastic Bulldogs!
