PrepNation 101 Preseason Countdown: No. 88 Wayne Hills continues the most comprehensive package of preseason high school football rankings ever published. We are counting down the PrepNation 101 Preseason High School Football Rankings, from No. 101 to No. 26, leading up to the release of the official preseason National Prep Poll on August 3.

88. Wayne Hills (Wayne, N.J.)
Last season: 12-0, North I Group 3 state champion
Coach: Chris Olsen
Key players: QB Mike Quinn (6-3, 205, Sr.), RB Brian Dowling (5-10, 185, Jr.), OT Chris Fonti (6-7, 310, Sr.), OG-DT Ryan Salerno (5-10, 260, Sr.), OG-DT Nick Tumminello (6-1, 255, Sr.), WR Max DeCarvahlo (6-3, 200, Sr.)
Outlook: The Patriots have won 52 consecutive games, the second longest active streak in the nation among 11-man teams. There are six starters returning on each side of the ball, including the team’s field-general Quinn. As a junior, he completed 69 percent of his passes for 1,919 yards and 18 touchdowns. Fonti, a Rutgers recruit, is the top returning player on the offensive line. Tumminello was practically unblockable last season, racking up 22 tackles for loss and 10 sacks. The Patriots’ win streak will get a major test when they host nationally ranked St. Joseph Regional (Montvale) on October 2.
