Every week this season, Shore Conference football fans will get their chance to vote for the Sport Clips Football Player of the Week on our website, with more than 120,000 votes already cast in the first five weeks.

The latest recipient of the fans’ voting is Central Regional sophomore running back Mike Bickford. One of the top young running backs in the Shore, Bickford has been voted by the fans as the Sport Clips Shore Conference Football Player of the Week for his performance in 26-12 win over Pinelands in Class B South. Bickford posted a career-high 228 yards rushing and scored all four touchdowns to continue a breakout season as a sophomore.
