Holmdel showed signs of life in the late part of 2016 scoring back to back wins over Manchester and Matawan followed by a heartbreaking 21-20 loss to Bordentown in the consolation round of the state playoffs.  Head coach Jeff Rainess saw a large number of sophomore starters gain invaluable experience at the varsity level.  Now, that group is ready to make the next step and get the Hornets to play winning football and contend for a playoff spot.  Jersey Sports Zone’s Jay Cook continues our Football Preview Tour with a look at the 2017 Hornets:
