New Rochelle High School are New York State AA Champs

New Rochelle wins Class AA State Championship

The New Rochelle Huguenots’ football team dominated the defending state champs, Orchard Park, in a blowout 34-6 win on Nov. 24 to capture the New York State Class AA championship.

The Huguenots’ offense was a bolt of lightning right from the start of the game, striking with four touchdowns within the first two quarters.

Senior QB Khalil Edney led the offensive onslaught, completing 6-10 of his throws for 82 yards and two scores. Edney also led the ground attack with 92 yards rushing on only six attempts, amounting to a mind blowing 15.3 yards per carry and a touchdown.

Senior RB Jason Ceneus was the game’s MVP, running the ball 12 times for 74 yards. He also added a 40-yard touchdown reception from Edney in the first quarter.

They took their 28-0 lead into the half, and then turned the game over to the defense, who came hungry.

DB Shayne Forbes recorded 9.5 tackles and three sacks to lead a defense that gave up only one touchdown in the fourth quarter. Senior DE Terrence Holden recorded seven tackles and a sack and senior DT Ray Ganley had an interception to go along with two tackles.

New Rochelle finished with a 12-1 record on the season. This was the Huguenots’ second state championship and the first since NFL star Ray Rice’s team won it all in 2003.
