Coach C has nothing to do with the WS or Jersey express's bracket. Good try though.

You think it was coincidence? It is a known fact that the WS reaches out to program directors for feedback on the pools well before the event. That is not even a secret. Regardless, Jersey Express is probably the 4th best team in NJ at 2026. At best.

Giving feed back and "making sure" are 2 different things. He has no more influence over bracket setup than the other local coaches for the event. As far as you ranking them #4 in the state i'd say that makes them a pretty decent team. I wouldn't say "Jersey Express is not that good". Enjoy your weekend of ranking 8th grade teams.

Fair to say JE is downright terrible. At this age Towermen, BBL, LE, true are way better. Maybe patriot, riot, lakers are even or better. Any of the talent at 2026 or 2025 left last summer.


You clearly don’t follow this age group. JE, BBL and LE all competed at a similar level last year while Towerman was the best team in NJ, but not by a wide margin. TBD on this year as little to no games have been played by most teams

It's actually comical how much older the Jersey goalie is. Looks like he's 25. Plays like he's 10 though.

So how often is your team practicing this fall? And how many tournaments are you playing?

Their rank will likely correct itself as they play more teams.

1X/week, 2 tournaments. That's impressive that you can get 2 practices in. Lots of kids missing for football and soccer?

2x week practice
5 tournaments

It's understood that they play multiple sports. In our case we're able to make practice after football. A handful of kids show up late or not at all.
Overall pretty good turnout.

Express beats s2s by + 18 (being nice)

91 beats s2s by + 10 (give or take)

Igloo beats s2s + 8 (shutout)

The reason is simply that those teams are better. Express is the gold standard with 91 & Igloo not far behind. Every other team on L.I. is a glorified town team with nice helmets. Legacy is off the map and they were next up.

s2s is in the B/C category with the Rebels, Rush, Empire, Outlaws, ECE, and the other glorified town teams. Not sure how good [ChillLaxin] or ROAR is at this level but the top dogs are the top dogs and Express sits alone.

If you want to see where your team stands Coach C will set up a scrimmage and you'll know pretty quick. Glad that your sons team is getting commits but reality will set in quickly when the first wave of Express hits them. It's a mans game now. Be ready.

Express was scheduled to play the Rebels in a Delaware tournament last weekend. After Express was 2-0 and the Rebels were 0-2 in the tourney the schedule quickly changed so they wouldn't play each other. I guess the tournament director (Rebels owner) changed his mind seeing a blowout was in order.

Yes express would have easily crushed the Rebels. But based on the results of the first 2 games it was guaranteed to have express CoachC vs express jersey in the final. So they changed the 3rd game and had CoachC play jersey for the “final”. This way everyone could hit the road for a four hour plus drive.
Was CoachC in Delaware? I thought he was in Jersey???
