Steve DiGregorio, Nutley High School alumnus and Head NHS VarsityFootball Coach, was named NJ.Com/Star-Ledger Coach of the Year. In a COVID-19 season that has left the football world limping across the finish line, Coach D., as he is affectionately known, led his team to a perfect 6-0 finish and a SFC Freedom Division Championship.  The Raiders offense averaged 278 yards per game on the ground, and scored 204 points in 6 games.  Defensively the Raiders let up only 11 points per game.

The six-win season bumps his career win total to 62 games making him the second winningest football coach in Raider history behind the legendary George “Chief” Stanford.
