2018 All-Shore Football Final Vote Winners
The All-Shore Final Fan Vote is complete and we have our last nine members of the 2018 Shore Sports Network All-Shore Football Team. Below are the players you, the readers, selected, to be named to the All-Shore team. Congratulations to all the nominees on great seasons and, of course, to the winners.
Collin Coles, Jr., Rumson-Fair Haven
In his first year as Rumson’s starting quarterback, Coles threw for 1,275 yards and 15 touchdowns to pilot an offense that averaged 29.3 points per game. Coles was an All-Colonial Division selection by the coaches and helped Rumson go 10-2, win the division title, win the Central Jersey Group 3 title and win the Central/South Group 3 Bowl Game.
Romeo Thomas, Jr., Colts Neck
Thomas likely would have cracked the 1,000-yard rushing mark if had played in all 10 games, but he had a very good season nonetheless by rushing for 960 yards and eight touchdowns on an average of 7.0 yards per carry. Thomas was an All-Liberty Division selection by the coaches. He will be the centerpiece of Colts Neck’s offense in 2019 as the Cougars try to build in the second year under head coach Matt Ahearn.
Aidan Campbell, Sr., Middletown North
Campbell, who was a second-team All-Shore wide receiver last season, put together another solid season despite missing three games. The Lions’ top wideout hauled in 23 passes for 310 yards and four touchdowns, averaging 13.8 yards per catch, and was an All-Colonial Division selection by the coaches.
Logan Baxter, Sr., Brick Memorial
Baxter was the top lineman for a Brick Memorial triple-option offense that ran for 2,504 yards and 29 touchdowns en route to reaching the Central Jersey Group 4 semifinals. He was an All-Colonial Division selection by the coaches.
Paul Damato, Jr., Marlboro
Damato recorded seven sacks along with 12 tackles for loss and 47 total tackles, and was selected to the Constitution Division All-Division team by the coaches.
Colin Chatto, Sr., Red Bank
Chatto had 80 tackles with six tackles for loss and three sacks for a Red Bank defense that allowed 16.8 points per game. Chatto’s play helped the Bucs rebound from a 2-8 season to finish 7-3 and reach the Central Jersey Group 3 semifinals.
Nick Ferrogine, So., Red Bank
Ferrogine stepped in as a first-year varsity player and made an immediate impact on a Red Bank team that went 7-3 and reached the Central Jersey Group 3 semifinals. He recorded 72 tackles with three tackles for loss and a forced fumble on a defense that allowed 16.8 points per game.
Rashid ‘Scooby’ Tuddles, Sr., RB/DB, Manasquan
Tuddles was an integral two-way standout for a Warriors team that went 8-3, won the Liberty Division title and reached the Central Jersey Group 2 sectional final. Tuddles ran for 683 yards and added 130 receiving yards with eight total touchdowns, and was also a thunderous blocker who led the way for Canyon Birch to rush for over 1,200 yards. On defense, Tuddles made 49 tackles with three tackles for loss, three interceptions, four passes defensed and one interception return for a touchdown.
Alex Unanski, Sr., Holmdel
Unanski was 49-for-51 on extra points and kicked two field goals with a long of 40 to help Holmdel to its best season since 2007. The Hornets went 8-2, won the National Division title and reached the Central Jersey Group 3 semifinals.
