This 2019 season, the East Brunswick High School football team presented with extreme improvement, leaving the team with a 4-4 record, which hasn 't been done at EBHS in 10 years. The team tied for the last spot in the New Jersey South Group 5 Playoffs with Hunterdon Central, where they lost the spot to the 2-7 team. Everyone - including the Hunterdon Central coach - agreed that this was unfair and that East Brunswick deserved the 16th spot. Both teams are tied with a 17.8 UPR (United Power Ranking), and the tiebreaker was the teams opponent strength index,  East Brunswick with a 40.96 OSI and Hunterdon Central with a 43.54 OSI.

The Bears Football team has worked insanely hard to make this season one of the best, and to help their seniors make their last season and Coach Steinfeld's first season as head coach as memorable as possible. Currently on gridironnewjersey.com , which is the official website that NJSIAA uses for statistics,  East Brunswick is ranked 16th and Hunterdon Central as 17th, yet Hunterdon Central is still in the playoffs and East Brunswick is not. The boys on the team and their coaches have put 110% into the team and improving their own skills while pushing their teammates to grow. 

In order for the tiebreaker to be decided by wins and not by schedule, a minimum of 1,000 signatures is needed for the NJSIAA to consider it. Help the decision be fair for the teams involved and sign to help out the team! Although it may not make a difference this year in the decision, it can help future seasons.
