Fresh off his appearance at the Rally for the Republic, as well as his recent press conference with Congressman Ron Paul and Monica Ramos (wife of imprisoned Border Patrol agent Ignacio Ramos), Baldwin is excited to bring his message of lower taxes and government reform to the people of the Garden State.

Hanratty took over a GL football program in 2004 that failed to make the states in the nine previous years. Since Hanratty took over, the Highlanders have qualified for postseason play every year. “That is our goal every year, to make the post season,” the Highlander coach said. 

Every year, the team has a different dynamic due to graduation and maturation of players. “Our offensive and defensive lines are going to dictate how we play this year. That is definitely our strength” said Hanratty, referring to his lineman core.
