Hoboken honors Redwings Football Championship with Washington St. parade


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 teams’ 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, “You 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, “It’s a great town, it’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.”
