2008 Union CountyAll County Awards
by Jim Whelan

2007-2008-Player of the Year
Desmond Wade

It seems like he has been around forever, the only bad thing about Des? departures is the Direct TV packages that Linden fans will have to get to
watch him play at the University of Houston. Becoming the alltime assist leader, scoring 1,500 points, two back-to-back state championships, one county championship, four sectional finals, and one T of C championship
appearance for the fouryear letter winner. Desmond is one of the best under 6?0 players to come out of New Jersey in a long time with a record of 103-20 (837). The torch has been passed from Coach Colicchio to Coach Tom Penders. In the next four years I am sure you will see Desmond and the University of Houston in the NCAA tournament.
