Don Bosco Prep Myth or Reality

Everyone wants to know if DBP's program is real or just a myth.
Just watching the 2010 Ironmen of Ramsey go about their business on a
daily basis one has a tough argument to uphold to say anything different.
 The Ironmen believe in hard work, brotherhood, and mental toughness
as their daily supplement for success in a discipline program at Ramsey.

 Many critics believe that the 2010 year was suppose to be a rebuilding
year and one which would involve growing pains for the young and
inexperience Ironmen. Instead wide receiver Leonte Carroo got healthy
and focused, Freshman phenom defensive back Jabril Peppers played
like a veteran, transfer standouts from Paterson Catholic defensive
lineman Alquadin Muhammad, safety play maker Elijah Shumate
prove to be the intregal piece of the puzzle the Ironmen needed
to solidify the defense.

 Leadership is very important for any team's success and there are
three players that exemplify just that every weekend, senior quarterback
Gary Nova with his cool demeanor and pinpoint accuracy, senior linebacker
Lars Larsen who is a tackling machine has a nose for the football, junior defensive
lineman Darius unblockable Hamilton who is a man playing amongst boys.

 A lot of programs tries to imitate and duplicate DBP's intense program but
what make this program so unique and successful is that everyone buys into
the system faculty, kids, coaches, and the community.

 On the cusp on winning its fifth state title in a row thirteenth in all the
Bergen Catholic Crusaders ( 10-1) will have to invade the Ironmen (11-0)
prohibited island to dethrone them.
 If the Ironmen win another state title and Star Ledger top team Trophy
under the lights at the New Meadowlands Stadium on December 3rd there will be
no more questions about the legitimacy of their program.
