Congratulations to Rutgers University football players and Hudson County products Joe Radigan of Hoboken and Pedro Sosa of Union City for earning All-Big East honors this season.

It's been a dream season for the Scarlet Knights, who have won 10 games for the first time in 28 years and will head to the Texas Bowl to face Kansas State in Houston later this month.

Part of the major reason for the team's success has been the play of punter Radigan, who was named as the First Team punter and ranks among the nation's leaders in punting average and Sosa, the offensive tackle, who made Second Team All-Big East...

Josh Lopez is making his presence felt right away with the New Jersey City University basketball team. The freshman guard, who was an All-Area honoree last year by the Hudson Reporter when he was playing at St. Mary's, was named the New Jersey Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week last week for scoring 20 points, all in the second half, in a game against The College of New Jersey.

Lopez has been the team's designated long-range threat and hit four more three-pointers in a loss to Rutgers-Newark Wednesday night, a game where he scored 14 points off the bench. It looks as if Lopez has found a happy home with legendary coach Charlie Brown and the Gothic Knights....

Another local basketball player doing well in the NJAC is Union Hill graduate Melissa Beyruti, who is the team's leading scorer at Kean University in the early going of the season.

Beyruti, now a sophomore at Kean, is averaging close to 18 points per game and has been named the NJAC Player of the Week twice already this season. Beyruti is clearly the team's leading scorer thus far as Kean has jumped out to a 7-0 record in the early going...

Bayonne's Joe Borowski has landed on his feet again, signing a $4 million contract with the Cleveland Indians. Borowski set a new career high in saves last year in a comeback season with the Florida Marlins. He will do nicely in Cleveland...

Former St. Anthony standout Obie Nwadike had his first double-double of the season last week for Central Connecticut in a win over Delaware. Nwadike, picked as a preseason All-Northeast Conference selection, had 10 points and 11 rebounds in the 63-60 win. Central Connecticut is now 3-6 in the early going...

One last thing. The Great Hagueini was abysmal this year. The St. Peter's Prep loss put the wide one at a non-descript 5-5 for the state football playoffs. It's time to put the crystal ball and turban away for another day...
