It’s double the RFH pride when the Bulldogs win the varsity state football championship, you’re a player and your cheering section is headed by your RFH grad mom.

Of course, moms are number one fans; but, the RFH connection between this mother and son just makes this on-the-field capture all the more Bulldog meaningful. That’s because the moment is one between 1993 grad Jenny Jones Costello and son Nick, an RFH senior and linebacker for the team.

Yes, by now, most know that the RFH Varsity Football team won the state championship with Friday night’s playoff win against Hazlet’s Raritan High School 34-27, making them the NJSIAA South Jersey Group 2 champions.

Those winning two-generation RFH smiles say it all.

Congratulations Bulldogs! Cheers!
