Lezgus Plumbing Football Player of the Week: Red Bank’s Jack Navitsky
Every week this regular season, Shore Conference football fans will have their chance to vote for the Lezgus Plumbing/Shore Sports Network Football Player of the Week on our website, with tens of thousands of votes cast this week and over 100,00 votes cast this season.
The Week Eight recipient is Red Bank senior quarterback Jack Navitsky, who accounted for 193 total yards and three touchdowns in the Bucs' 37-6 victory over Holmdel that moved their unblemished record to 7-0. Navitsky completed 7-of-9 passes for 143 yards and a touchdown, connecting with senior wide receiver Sadiq Palmer five times for 105 yards and a score. Navitsky also ran for 50 yards and two touchdowns on eight carries. Navitsky has thrown for 734 yards and seven touchdowns while rushing for 365 yards and four touchdowns to help Red Bank to its best start in over a decade. Red Bank plays at winless Manchester this week as it looks to move to 8-0, and will seek its first state sectional title in 40 years when the NJSIAA sate playoffs get underway next week.
Red Bank's fans had a dominant showing in the virtual voting booth in securing Navitsky over 50 percent of the votes to pull away from Manasquan running back Parker Day, who ran for 225 yard and two touchdowns in a loss to Matawan.
