Montclair High School’s Mounties, along with new coach, John Fiore, looked good in blue today on Media Day. There’s a lot of excitement for this season. “This really is an exciting time for our football team! The new coach really cares about the guys, and we see a “new” energy in the players. My husband believes we had more people in attendance for a Saturday scrimmage than for many of last season’s home games. (Don’t know if that is accurate.) It certainly shows that Montclair is enthusiastic about what this year’s football season could bring, ” shares an excited parent.
The players are just as optimistic. Mounties safety and wide receiver Aamad Bush says, “Coach Fiore is great, I’m really happy he’s our coach; he keeps us focused and also makes sure we have fun while playing football. But we are very excited for this season. We have something to prove after last season and we are also excited to win games for our new coach. We wanna prove that Montclair football is still one of the best in the state.”
