Previewing the 2023 North Jersey High School Football Season

The 2023 North Jersey high school football season is set to kick off with Week 0 games starting this Friday. The New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) governs high school sports in the state, but it operates under the larger umbrella of the National Federation of High Schools (NFHS).

The NFHS is responsible for establishing the rules and regulations that govern high school sports across the nation.

These rankings take into account team quality, division strength, and more. While some may disagree with the rankings, they reflect the overall landscape of high school football in North Jersey.
