New Woodbridge varsity football head coach Jed Bell takes over the program from former coach Ed Manlove, who retired last year after winning a state title for the second time in three seasons. Manlove, a former assistant coach at Middletown, also led Laurel to a state championship game before coming to Woodbridge.

“Coach Manlove was great in letting my role grow as an assistant coach under him,” said Bell.

Bell said he is not looking to change very much with the Raiders’ football program. Many of the assistant coaches are the same as they were under Manlove.

“We’re just going to do what we do,” Bell added.

Among the assistant coaches is former Laurel football head coach Eston Ennis, who was an assistant coach at Woodbridge before becoming a head coach at Woodbridge. Ennis played for Manlove his senior year with the Bulldogs.

All in the Family- Sussex Tech senior quarterback Ricky Kane returns this season after suffering a torn meniscus in week one last year. Kane was able to return in mid-season of last year’s basketball season.

Kane, who served as a leader off the field while he was hurt, has a familiar face on the Ravens’ coaching staff. His brother, Kani, is one of head coach Mark Quillin’s assistant coaches.

“He’s been a big motivator for his brother,” said Quillin. Kani Kane is a former Sussex Tech football player.

Sussex Tech freshman boys’ soccer player Timothy Hitchcock also follows in his brother’s footsteps. Anthony Hitchcock was a goalie for the Ravens.

Reunion- Delmar High School will be recognizing the 1959 and 2009 varsity football teams during Homecoming this year. The players in attendance will be recognized prior to the game.

The 2009 team started out 1-3 before going on to win the rest of its games and take the Division II state championship. Alex Ellis, then a junior, was the team’s quarterback. Ellis was one of the Philadelphia Eagles’ final cuts over the weekend, however, he was signed to the team’s practice squad and may end up on the roster going into the season opener against the Washington Redskins.

Delmar head coach David Hearn, in his 29th season as the Wildcats’ head coach and 39th season overall, is looking to make this recognition an annual tradition.
