Don Bosco-Paramus Catholic Feud Fueled By Former Player

University of Michigan freshman Jabrill Peppers recently upped the rivalry between top New Jersey football schools Don Bosco Prep and Paramus Catholic after sending a lengthy text about Don Bosco recruitment practices to a Record reporter.

Peppers, who started his high school career with Don Bosco and later transferred to Paramus Catholic, claims in the exclusive report that Don Bosco coach Greg Toal had his eye on the all-star defensive back since middle-school.

In a text to a Record reporter, Peppers said: "You guys want the real story, here it is: 8th grade year, when I was playing Pop Warner, coach Toal and his staff back then would call me and my mom repeatedly, show up at my Pop Warner games, take my Mom out to dinner and other things that I will not mention."

These allegations have put the Don Bosco Prep coach in a very uncomfortable situation regarding rules against attracting students to enroll or transfer for athletic purposes. While Don Bosco school officials challenge much of what Peppers is saying, the situation has still painted the school in an unflattering light amidst a very high- stake season for both football power-house schools.
