Liva’s Leg: From World Class Soccer Player to JV Kicker
Liva Helt might be the most interesting high school kicker in New Jersey you’ve never heard of. The 16-year-old from Little Silver is soft-spoken yet determined, and that combination inspired her to step out of her comfort zone on the pitch and line up seven yards behind center. As a native of Denmark who bounced around Europe and California before permanently landing in New Jersey, Liva is a world class soccer player. She’s a member of Denmark’s Youth National team and as a junior is already committed to play Division I soccer at Columbia University. But instead of lacing up her cleats for her high school team, she decided to try something new and kick for the football team — the Red Bank Regional Buccaneers. JSZ’s Jay Cook takes us through her decision to try out, a very special varsity moment from this past weekend and how two months of high school football has impacted her life: Sponsor Shoutout! Jersey Sports Zone is built on telling fantastic stories about remarkable student athletes throughout the state, and we could not do that without help from our great sponsors. Thanks to Ryser’s Landscape Supply in Little Silver for supporting coverage of Red Bank Regional athletics throughout the next school year!

LA Rams linebacker gives back at Red Bank Regional
Garrett Sickels returned to his high school alma mater to give the Red Bank Regional defensive line a 30-minute tutorial on technique and what it takes to get to the quarterback. The 2012 RBR graduate was a US Army All-American during his high school days and went on to Penn State where he had 6.5 sacks and 47 tackles in his redshirt junior campaign earning defensive MVP honors in 2016. Sickels chose to enter the 2017 NFL Draft over returning to Happy Valley as a redshirt senior. Many were surprised when the Nittany Lions defensive end was not drafted. What followed was a roller coaster trip on NFL practice squads. After stints with the Indianapolis Colts and Cleveland Browns, Sickels landed on his third practice squad in Los Angeles. Switching from a 4-3 defensive end to an outside linebacker, Sickels was activated for the Rams final regular season game. He was re-signed by Los Angeles for 2018 and enters training camp looking to contribute to the Rams linebacking corps. Thanks to head coach Nick Giglio and Garrett, JSZ gets an inside look of a young NFL player inspiring high school players with great instruction and the mindset it takes to succeed on and off the football field: Thanks to Ryser’s Landscape Supply for sponsoring our Red Bank Regional coverage on Jersey Sports Zone
