The only difference between this year's contest and the previous two meetings is that the Cardinal football faithful will have a high interest in the game that will include Louisville commit Darius Mann of Bosco and Brian Cushing of Bergen, who has become one of the most desired prospects.
"This will be the biggest game of the year in North Jersey," Mann told Inside the Ville. "Whenever we play it is a good game. Both teams are always prepared very well."
Cushing, who's Bergen squad fell to Bosco earlier this season 42-21, shares similar thoughts to the season-ending state title game.
"It'll be real big," added the 6-foot-3, 230-pound Cushing. "This will be my last chance to get a win against them in the title game."
In addition to defeating Bergen earlier this year, Bosco has won the previous two meetings in state championship, including a narrow 14-13 win in 2003.
Mann and Cushing have grown to have quite a bit of respect for each other's abilities over the past season and have nothing but compliments for each other.
"He's all over the field," Cushing said of Mann. "He's the kind of guy that if you come anywhere near him, he'll make the play. He makes great tackles and will chase anyone down."
"He's a Big East, Big 10 kind of guy," said Mann of Cushing. "He's a smashmouth type of player. He'll come up and hit you."
While the two are projected by most as defensive players in college, Mann a safety and Cushing a linebacker, they have each claimed a larger role on the offensive side of the ball later in their senior seasons.
"We didn't see much of Darius on offense against us the first time, but he still scored on us twice," said Cushing, who has recorded 102 tackles, 8 sacks and an interception on the season. "He's just as good on offense."
"I saw Brian play against St. Joesph's and he had a huge game on offense," explained Mann, who, despite missing two games leads the team with 65 tackles, including 8 for a loss and 2 sacks. "He is a big and powerful running back."
While the meeting between the two rival school's will provide plenty of excitement, the chance to play on the turf at Giant Stadium also adds to the game experience.
"It's awesome to play there and to know that you are playing on the same field as the NFL guys," Cushing explained. "The whole atmosphere will be great."
With the game not until the first weekend of December, both teams will have ample time to prepare for each other, however, Bosco will play its annual Thanksgiving game, while Bergen won't play again until the championship game.
"It could both help and hurt us," Cushing said of the layoff. "We'll get a good rest, so we should be healthy, so I think it'll help us more than hurt us."
The title game between the two national high school powers will be broadcast on the MSG network.
