In addition to the reader-selected Orthopaedic Institute of Central Jersey Football Player of the Week, we will also be selecting Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week for each of the Shore Conference’s six divisions. We’ll also choose an overall Shore Conference Special Teams Player of the Week to highlight any standout kicking performances or players that got it done in the return game.

Below we’ll focus on the best performances from Week 2.

 

SSN SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Alex Unanski, Jr., Holmdel

In a 45-7 victory over Spotswood, Unanski booted a 42-yard field goal, which is the longest field goal in the Shore Conference this season. He also went 6-for-6 on extra points as the Hornets improved to 2-1 and equaled last season’s win total.

 

SSN DIVISIONAL PLAYERS OF THE WEEK

CLASS A NORTH

Offense

Ashante Worthy, Sr., QB, Freehold

Worthy gets the A North Off. P.O.T.W. honor for the second straight week after a record-setting game against Howell. Worthy ran for 338 yards and four touchdowns on 38 carries while also throwing for 286 yards and a touchdown, setting what is believed to be the Shore Conference single-game record for combined yards with 624. Worthy did commit five turnovers in the 55-35 loss, but going for over 600 yards is an insane accomplishment.

Defense

Sal Tardogno, Sr., LB, Manalapan and Tommy Pearce, Jr., LB, Manalapan

We couldn’t possibly separate the Braves’ two defensive stalwarts after their dominant games in a 35-0 shutout of Southern. Tardogno made 20 tackles (10 solo, 1 for a loss), while Pearce had 19 stops (9 solo, 1 for a loss) as Manalapan recorded its second shutout in as many games this season.

 

CLASS A CENTRAL

Offense

Haaziq Daniels, Sr., QB, St. John Vianney

In a 55-7 win over Raritan, Daniels threw for 150 yards and four touchdowns on 8 of 10 passing, while also rushing for 72 yards and two touchdowns

Defense

Devin Williams, Jr., DB, Matawan

Williams made 15 tackles (8 solo) with three tackles for a loss as the Huskies defeated Red Bank, 20-7, for their first win of the season.

 

CLASS A SOUTH

Offense (Besides Overall Player of the Week, Brick Memorial’s Blaine Netterman)

T.J. Scuderi, Sr., QB, Toms River South

Scuderi ran for 132 yards and a touchdown on five carries and also threw a touchdown pass to help the Indians defeat Toms River East, 20-15, to snap an eight-game losing streak.

Defense

Cory Englehardt, Jr., DL, Brick

In the Green Dragons’ 17-14 comeback victory over Jackson Memorial, Englehardt made 13 tackles, including four tackles for a loss, to help Brick improve to 2-0.

 

CLASS B NORTH

Steve Lubischer, Jr., QB, Red Bank Catholic

Lubischer ran for 134 yards and two touchdowns on five carries and threw for 108 yards and two touchdowns in Red Bank Catholic’s 60-41 victory over Middletown North.

Defense

Sean Anderson, Sr., DL, Manasquan and Art Foreman, Jr., DL, Manasquan

Anderson and Foreman had two sacks each when Manasquan shut out Woodbridge, 30-0, to even the Warriors' record at 1-1.

 

CLASS B CENTRAL

Chris Webber, Sr., RB, Point Beach

Webber ran for 138 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries to help the Garnet Gulls blank Bishop Ahr, 18-0, and improve to 2-0.

Defense

Donte Abrams, Sr., DB, Asbury Park

Abrams had two interceptions plus five tackles, while also returning a punt 55 yards for a touchdown in Asbury Park’s 20-14 overtime win over Keyport. Abrams added 54 yards rushing on nine carries.

 

CLASS B SOUTH

Offense

Evan Burton, Jr., RB, Pinelands

Burton was sensational in a 27-20 victory over Marlboro with 244 yards rushing and three touchdowns on 22 carries, including the game-winning 61-yard touchdown run with 38 seconds left in the game. He also had touchdown runs of 70 and 20 yards.

Defense

Levin Musawa, Sr., DE, Barnegat

Musawa had a huge game in the Bengals’ 23-14 comeback victory over Shore with 7 tackles, including 5 for a loss, 2 sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
