Glen Rock football coach Jim Kurz honored by league


Glen Rock High School football coach Jim Kurz has been named Coach of the Year in the North Jersey Interscholastic Conference’s Liberty Division for 2020, and seven members of the team were selected as first-team performers on the division’s year-end all-star team.

Senior quarterback Ty Scherer, junior running back Andrew Sara, senior receiver Tommy Callahan, senior lineman Angelo Piazza and junior lineman Nolan Clark were named to the first-team offense, and senior lineman Ryan Burstiner and junior linebacker Mike McCarthy were named first-teamers on defense.

Glen Rock played the maximum eight games in a season that was discombobulated by the COVID-19 pandemic. There were no state playoffs, and teams were limited to six regular-season games, plus two additional, opt-in games that served as a postseason. The Panthers finished 6-2, the six wins being their most since 2015.
