2017 MR. PANTHER
I am proud to announce the winner of the 2017 Mr. Panther-Ed Test Memorial Award to Mr. Christopher Jackson. I am so honored to rename my award this year to include the memory of our beloved football coach Mr. Ed Test. Coach Test became our football coach in 1981 and remained so until 1987. Only 3 other head coaches had longer stints since 1900 at that position. He led our team to 46 victories including a 10-1 record in 1983. Coach Test brought "winning" back to Jersey and like coach Test, Christopher Jackson is a "Winner"! Christopher is shown here after the awards banquet tonight with Lisa Test-Schuenke and Joanne Test.
