Bill Furlong returns to the Jersey Shore after coaching in the Pennsylvania high school ranks

Rich’s Take

Coach Furlong sees the talent he’s inherited at Manchester and simply wants to see the 2014 team come together and show off that talent.  The Hawks have speed and Robert Planter has a great frame on him.  Two tough road tests in the first three weeks (Barnegat and Lakewood) will be a challenge for sure.  It takes time to build a program, but Furlong has the track record to get it done.  Based on what I saw, this is a team that should definitely improve on last year’s three win season.
