It's the coolness of the autumn breeze, roar of the fans around you, the hype of great teams with great players and the smell of the snack stand surrounding you as 22 players battle it out on the gridiron.

Things felt like that at Toms River High School East on Friday night's when Nico and Mario Steriti were wearing the silver and black of the Raiders uniforms on teams with a heap of talent all over the field.
