Delgado on Daily’s success: The guy is a magician

With Livingston winning the North Jersey, Section 1, Group 4 championship on June 3, it didn’t take long for the accolades to come to the Lancers’ head coach, Jason Daily.

Montclair’s lead man, Phil Delgado, who many feel has produced a Coach of the Year performance himself, couldn’t help but laud a man he’s called a mentor for some time.

“The guy is a magician, brother,” said Delgado. “We’re all battling for second place, when it comes to coaching, when you discuss Jason. He’s had some great teams, and some good teams, but the bottom line is, he just wins. I’m not surprised they won a state championship today. Never count Livingston out.”

Ironically, Livingston’s last loss, before its run in the state tournament, came to Montclair, in the semifinals of the Essex County Tournament.

jdEarlier this season, Daily won his 300th career game at Livingston.

“We played really well that night, and we had to if we were going to beat Livingston,” said Delgado. “I always told my kids, win or lose, when the game is over, make sure you congratulate Coach Daily on being a great coach.”
