Shore Sports Network Player of the Week - Week 8

Jason Tango, Howell

In a resurgent season for Howell boys soccer, the Rebels have relied on a strong defensive unit, led by Tango. The junior has looked for chances to push forward and he found a couple of them when his team needed him most.

In a thrilling, 3-2 road win over Eastern in the first round of the NJSIAA South Jersey Group IV Tournament, Tango scored twice to make the difference in the game. He pushed up out of the back to score two goals, including the golden goal in overtime.

Tango won this week's Player of the Week vote with more than half (51 percent) of the 21,690 votes cast in a little more than 24 hours. He beat out Pinelands junior Aniello Lubrano (34 percent) and Freehold Township senior Alex Langa (10 percent) to win the second-to-last Player of the Week of the 2017 season.
