The City of Hoboken honored the Redwings with a parade along Washington Street yesterday to celebrate their 10th N.J.S.I.A.A. Football Championship.
The parade began at 3 p.m. as city officials, cheerleaders, the high school band and the state champions were paraded along floats down Washington Street.
Local community members showed support for their teamsâ€™ victory by attending the parade which stretched from 10th and Washington Streets and convened at Town Hall (94 Washington St.).
An energetic team rode the floats after a stunning 34-12 victory over David Brearley Bears, which took place on December 5, 2015 at Kean University.
The Redwings football team ended this season with a successful 6-3 overall record that landed them in the state playoffs against the Bears.
When asked about the teams approach to the season, Head Coach Louis Taglieri responded, â€œYou hit some crossroads and you can go one way or the other, we decided to go the right way and things paid off.”
Hudson County View later asked how a victory like this reflects towards the community and Taglieri continued, â€œItâ€™s a great town, itâ€™s a great school and we get some great players that we get to coach.”
“The parade was a way for the school to share its victory with the community, give back and show support for those that support them throughout the season.”
