Burger 25 Football Plays of the Week
Donovan Catholic's Kyree Drake
Drake is a highlight machine for the Griffins and this play was more of the same. On the first play of Donovan's second series, a simple screen pass turns into an 80-yard touchdown thanks to his blazing speed. Drake totaled 114 scrimmage yards and three touchdowns in a 35-0 win over Colts Neck.
Lacey's Noah Brunatti and Michael Abode
The Lions fell to No. 1 Rumson-Fair Haven, 28-6, but hung tough with the Bulldogs in the first half. They got on the board via this trick play as quarterback Noah Brunatti takes a flea-flicker and fires a 25-yard touchdown pass to Michael Abode. Rumson actually defended the play pretty well but Brunatti's pass was on target for six.
Long Branch's Christian Rodriguez and Sekou Kamau
Long Branch senior quarterback Christian Rodriguez had himself a great night with five touchdown passes in a 35-21 win over Jackson Memorial. This was a wild play where Rodriguez scrambled all the way to his right before throwing back across the field to Kamau on a play that ended up working like a middle screen. Kamau did the rest for the 17-yard score.
Marlboro's Matt Cassidy
The pass was tipped at the line of scrimmage and was ripe for the picking. Cassidy looked like a centerfielder ranging back to make the catch and was able to lay out for the diving interception that helped Marlboro to a 20-16 win over Freehold Township to improve to 3-0.
Middletown South's Tom Schork and Jack Latore
The Eagles pulled out a dramatic 13-7 overtime victory over Manalapan to remain undefeated and it was this 14-yard touchdown pass from Schork to Latore that went down as the walk-off score.
Point Boro's Matt Oliphant
Not sure how much longer teams are going to kick the ball to Oliphant. For the second straight game, Oliphant returned a kickoff for a touchdown, this time taking the game's opening kick 91 yards for a touchdown. The Panthers were off and running from there on their way to a 48-14 win over Manchester to improve to 4-0.
Rumson-Fair Haven's Geoff Schroeder
Schroeder rushed for a career-high 241 yards and three touchdowns in the top-ranked Bulldogs' 28-6 win over Lacey, including this great 58-yard touchdown run where he shakes a pair of tackles at the line of scrimmage before turning on the jets with a convoy of blockers in surrounding him.
St. John Vianney's Antonio Rosato
Talk about getting what you wanted and then some. St. John Vianney junior quarterback Antonio Rosato turns a quarterback sneak into a 27-yard touchdown run during the Lancers' 46-7 win over Toms River South. Check out the devastating downfield block by tailback-turned-fullback-on-this-play Pete Pezzullo to help spring Rosato for the score.
Central Regional's Chase Gumbrecht
The Shore Conference's leading rusher had another huge game in the Golden Eagles' 41-17 win over Raritan with 288 yards and five touchdowns, none better than this weaving 49-yard touchdown run.
