2015 Preview

Lower Half (106-145): The lower half of the lineup for Long Branch is strong, and DEEP. LB goes at least two-deep at each weight class here, and in the case of the area around 126-145, they could be as deep as anyone in the state, giving them all kinds of flexibility and matchup options. D22 champ Jason Hernandez returns, as do D22 runner-ups TJ Conlon and Andy Hernandez, and 3rd-place finisher Tommy Flannigan. In addition to those four, Mike Jones was 3rd-place finisher in 2013, and Grant Brown, a transfer from Ocean, was a 4th-place finisher in the Region in 2012 while at CBA. This will be among the best lower halves in the Shore.

Upper Half (152-Hwt): The Wave lost three District placers, and 111 wins, to graduation, but there are very few coaches around that have the track record of consistently producing solid upperweights as Danny George. He does have a pretty good core to replace the four departed starters in sophomore Austin Cannon, who had a very impressive freshman campaign with 14 wins in the 2nd half of the season, and the returning 220-Hwt starters Joey Jasio (21 wins) and John Tomlinson (3rd D22).  Senior John Mimes, a 15-match winner back in 2012 for Middletown North, is among the new starters breaking into the lineup.

Outlook: There will be some matches that LB will win strictly based on the depth they have in that stretch from 113-160. Any team that survives that gauntlet, still has to worry about what should be an imposing group trio at 195-Hwt. There just aren't many breaks in this lineup and it will have LB back among the very top teams in the Shore. From a team title perspective, expect LB to contend for the B-North Title with Wall, the District Title with CBA, and the Sectional Title with South Plainfield. Potential for another very big year for the Wave.
