South Football’s Impossible Dream Movie
South Football’s Impossible Dream explores the rise to glory of a team that competed in an epic battle known at the Jersey Shore as “The Greatest Game Ever Played.” On a bitter cold day in November 1969, No. 1 ranked Toms River High School South faced No. 2 ranked Middletown High School before thousands of fans for a mythical state championship. Rare film footage from the game will be shown publicly for the first time.
The film uncovers the techniques used by former Toms River South Head Coach, Ron Signorino, Sr., in the 1960s, to turn a losing football program into a powerhouse that racked up a 19-game winning streak. Coach Signorino is a local legend known for his deep understanding of the game, his ability to motivate his players, and his knack for analyzing game films to better understand his opponents.

GENESIS STUDENT PORTAL!
Prior to the winter break, our students participated in tons of winter and holiday activities including our theme days like “Holiday Movie Character Dress Alike Day” and “Mistle-toes - wear your favorite holiday socks/SPIRIT Friday!”. We continue to express our school spirit with pride and enthusiasm.
This week some of our distinguished students will take the Seal of Biliteracy exam. We wish them much success!
This time of year offers a unique opportunity to refocus on goals. Although it may be difficult to get back into the swing of things again, we are determined to encourage and remind our students to stay focused on their academic goals.
We are so grateful to be a part of each students’ journey and to continue to share our amazing experiences at South!
