The Green Wave took a huge hit to graduation, losing six District medal winners. As a result, this will be a young team with several new faces in the lineup. Long Branch has a strong, active feeder program from which to restock the shelves with, so don't expect there to be some sort of huge drop off here.

The bulk of the returners LB has come in the 113-145 range. Junior Chris Dean is a 2-time District medal winner with 54 career wins through his first two seasons. He's joined by Ray Guzman, coming off a 15-win rookie year, and Carlos Irizarry, a 3rd-place finisher in the District last year who can provide senior leadership in the lower portion of the lineup. The lower half of the lineup also features returning starters Isaac Shohet, a junior, and sophomore Luke Arnold. Long Branch has a lot of numbers down here, especially with their incoming frosh, and will have a lot of lineup options when they need to shuffle things around.

Long Branch lost their big 1-2 punch at 220/Hwt to graduation, but head coach Danny George has always been one of the best at developing talented upperweights. He has two solid returners, junior Pete Wersinger, a 19-bout winner who placed 3rd in the District, and senior Hunter Marhan, in which to rebuild the upper part of the lineup around, from a pool of promising newcomers.

Long Branch is another one of those teams that is tough to get a read this early on. I'm kind of putting them in the same boat as CBA and Ocean. We know they lost a lot, but we also know they're going to be able to insert some tough newcomers. A lot of these young guys have had success at the feeder levels and will look to make an immediate impact. The B-North division is solid with Wall, and Ocean, and now Middletown North joining the fold, but it would be foolish to count the Green Wave out of that race. With a team this young, and a great coaching staff in place, this is probably a team you're going to want to face early in the year, as opposed to later on once things get rolling.
