The toughest test of the season is looming tonight for the South Brunswick High School football team as the Vikings honor the greatest athlete ever to suit up for SBHS.
Mohamed Sanu will have his jersey number 2 retired Friday at halftime of the game against Sayreville. But first, the 6-1 Vikings must take care of business against the 7-0 Bombers.
The Vikings went on the road and scored a resounding victory over Middletown North High School last week by a score of 40-17. After suffering their first loss of the season on Oct. 5 at Piscataway, SBHS rebounded with two straight dominating victories, including a 35-7 win over J.P. Stevens.
T.J. Perkowski led the way for the Vikings last week with 104 rushing yards, 108 passing yards and two touchdowns. Dontae Strickland also added two touchdowns for the Vikings, including a 93-yard kickoff return.
Sayreville has been the class of the GMC all season, as the Bombers have yet to let up more than seven points in a single game. The closest any team has come to beating Sayreville was the same Piscataway team that crushed SBHS. Sayreville defeated Piscataway by a score of 14-7 on Oct. 12.
The action kicks off Friday at 7 p.m. at SBHS, located at 750 Ridge Road in Monmouth Junction.
