Brian Deakyne’s pick: Eric Puma, Hillsborough
Hillsborough hasn’t finished over .500 in six years and Puma has this team on track to not just do that – but so much more. Hillsborough, ranked No. 11 in the NJ.com Top 20, is unbeaten through its first 11 games and added a signature road win over Pingry this week. Hillsborough should be the favorite entering the final rounds of the Somerset County Tournament and is certainly a big player in the upcoming Central Jersey, Group 4 state tournament.
Richard Greco’s pick: Rob Auriemma, Paramus
In his second year at the helm, Auriemma is certainly making quiet the impact for Paramus. After going 6-12-2 last season, Paramus is sitting pretty with a 10-1 record. Its resume has seen it knock off Bergen County powers Ramapo and Bergen Catholic, in addition to knocking off a St. Joseph (Mont.) team that is piecing together an impressive season as well. Paramus won just two games two years ago and hasn’t had a season over .500 in over nine years. That will likely change this season.
