It would take a miracle. The year was 1985, and Northern Valley Regional High School at Old Tappan had just made the football playoffs for the first time in its history. The reward was a cruel joke. They would face No. 1 Hoboken, a menacing squad that played on a dirt field flecked with rocks and glass. Old Tappan, those softies from the suburbs, was expected to lose by three touchdowns.
