Football – Video Plays of the Week, 10/2/13
Welcome to the second edition of the Shore Sports Network's top plays, highlighting the most dazzling and exciting moments from Shore Conference football action.
This week we take a look at the top clips from Week Three. Obviously, we can't be filming every game at once, so if you have a great clip on YouTube, Vimeo or some other service where it can be embedded, feel free to email me a link at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet it to me at @Scott_Stump. Also, if any coaches or video coordinators for teams have a great play and can export it from Hudl and email it to me or load it on to YouTube, feel free to also reach out so we can truly get a large amount of great plays from across the Shore.
I also will be looking to post the top fan videos from each week, so all those rowdy fanbases out there, make sure to send me your best stuff.
This week's fan video is courtesy of Brick Memorial. The Mustangs may have lost to Jackson Memorial, but it wasn't for lack of spirit from the student section.
PLAYS OF THE WEEK
Yeah, yeah, I know it's not a play, but Long Branch head coach Dan George celebrated the milestone of his 100th career win with the Green Wave with a heartfelt speech to his team.
Monsignor Donovan senior Joey Fields takes a kickoff 80 yards to the house in a loss to Barnegat.
A big reason George was able to get that 100th win for Long Branch was because of a clutch, one-handed overtime interception by senior safety Myson Pennington to end Neptune's OT possession.
The always-entertaining Tymere Berry of Toms River South ripped off this touchdown run that was called back for a penalty near the goal line (the Indians eventually scored) in a loss to Brick. He bobbles the snap yet still makes it happen.
And just for fun, here is one more Berry play that might have been the play of the year if he had completed the pass.
Ray Fattaruso is known as a rugged running back, but he went to the air for a halfback touchdown pass to teammate Mike Muratore in a win over Toms River South. He said they practiced it twice during the week, and he airmailed the first one and threw an interception on the second one. He nailed it when it counted.
Manalapan is all about a physical rushing attack, and that extends to junior quarterback Charles Lombana. He trucks a defender in the win over Middletown North in the opening clip of this video. Watch it here.
It was desperation time for Ocean in the fourth quarter against Matawan, and sophomore tailback Tyler Thompson pulled the Spartans out of the fire with a 55-yard touchdown on this screen play for a 7-3 win.
Call this the Glover 720. Jackson Memorial tailback Khani Glover with the nasty double spin move on a touchdown run against Brick Memorial. Khani see that again? Watch it here.
Keansburg's loss to South River was generally forgettable except for a school-record play by senior cornerback Yacir James. Watch as he takes an interception 106 yards the other way for the Titans' lone score of the game.
Jackson Liberty senior C.J. Bailey did James one better. Not only did he take a pick 98 yards to the house, he did it in the fourth quarter to win the game, 13-7 over Manchester, and give new coach Jim Sharples his first win with the Lions. Tim Osborn was smiling somewhere on this one.
