April 6th, 2017- nj.com feature article "Who's next? After St. Anthony, who can be the preeminent hoops coach and program?"

"Brian Feath, Ridge

While Feath has not won a state title while at Ridge, he has turned the Red Devils into one of the best public programs in the state and a perennial Group 4 contender. Feath's teams are regularly among the most disciplined and fundamentally sound squads in New Jersey. This was not a great season for Ridge, but it's clear that the man can coach."
