Senior running back Leo Shimonovich provided all the offense Jackson Memorial would need in a 14-0 win over Southern Friday night and was named the Jersey Mike’s/Ocean Trophies Player of the Game.  Shimonovich ran for 118 yards on just 12 carries and scored both Jaguar touchdowns as they beat the Rams in the 53rd meeting between the two longtime rivals (Jackson leads 28-24 with 1 tie).

The game was the season opener for both teams who are now in the Constitution Division as part of the Shore Conference football realignment for this season.
