Garden State Herd lead by Saftey #3 Darryl Kennedy

Monmouth County, NJ - The Garden State Herd decided to set the internet on fire last week with its announcement to take its talents to the National circuit and join the GDFL (Gridiron Developmental Football League).

The Herd spent the 2023 season playing in “The Den” finishing with a 6-3 record and a 1st round exit, losing to the Jersey Jackals. Garden State Herd showed promise early starting off the season 3-0 losing QB Stephen Panasuk to injury. New Jersey high school All time leading passing Marc Taylor stepped i for the injured Panasuk going 2-3 in his absence.

“Look, at the end of the day it’s about 2 things; the brand & the players. Moving to the GDFL was about opportunities for our players & The Herd itself to gain exposure outside of New Jersey, the opportunity to have guys seen by outlets in California, Ohio, Alabama etc. If one guy gets an opportunity to move up the ranks then coach Dabney & myself did our jobs.” Meacham (Co-Owner of GSH) told me.

The 2024 campaign looks to be off to a great start on the recruiting tip, big time players are looking to show up to “Camp Compete” and earn themselves a spot on this Garden State Herd roster. When speaking to coach Dabney he made it very clear that competition in camp is what’s gonna Somerset the men for the boys. “Everyone can’t party in kennel, those spots are reserved for dawgs and that’s all we want on this roster! 58 dawgs ready to be let off the leash!”  Dabney, who goes by the motto “your coach could never,” sure seems to be proving that statement true early on in the recruiting circuit. Definitely looking forward to seeing day one of camp and all the talent that shows up looking for a spot on this roster.
