Stellar Student Athlete ’22 NJ HB/LB Colts Neck Cougar John Manos Eyes Pre-Law at Catholic University

You won’t find too many students stronger than John Manos around New Jersey.

But as good as the Colts Neck senior has been in the classroom, he has also been honored for his prowess on the athletic fields for the Cougars.

The two-sport star (football and track) will head off to Catholic University in the fall to continue as a collegiate student-athlete.

Manos, who is 5-9, 175 pounds, benches over 300 pounds, deadlifts 525 pounds, squats over 400 pounds, and runs a sub-12 100 meters (and that time should come down in his senior season on the track).

As much as Manos excelled on the field and the track for Colts Neck, he has been an elite student in the classroom. He had a 4.6 GPA in his junior year, and overall has a 4.2 GPA, with a 1380 SAT score. Manos wants to study Pre-Law at Catholic, while pursuing his football career.

His coaches withheld no punches in their praise for Manos, on and off the field.

“John is 175 lbs right now but plays the game inside the box like a player of 220 lbs. The reason Manos is such a defensive star is because of his ability to move to the perimeter and deep safety as well. His versatility is shown via his 64 tackles, 3 interceptions, five pass deflections, a forced fumble and fumble recovery. Remember those numbers, as impressive as they are, these stats were accomplished in a shortened season.

His contributions did not end there. He had a punt block, as well as 200 plus yards on the ground and three touchdowns. For good measure, he added 40 yards receiving to his resume on five catches from slot receiver.

Manos didn’t just put up numbers but did so when it counted. His interception, while covering a D1 offered receiver for Manalapan, sealed an overtime win for Colts Neck that also locked up the division title. John fulfills the adage of ‘big time players make big time plays.’”
