Burger 25 Football Plays of the Week

Asbury Park's Jai'Sun Brown

Brown completed 10 of 13 passes for 186 yards and two touchdowns in a 42-7 win over Barnegat and this one was a beauty of a throw as he moves to his left and then throws back across his body to drop a dime to Jashawn Carter for a 38-yard score. The quickness with which he pivots his hips before firing an off-platform throw to connect with Carter on the run is marvelous.


Asbury Park's Jashawn Carter

Carter's touchdown catch on Brown's fantastic throw was just a small part of his effort in the Blue Bishops' 42-7 win over Barnegat. He ran for 157 yards and three touchdowns on just 10 carries, including this electric 52-yard score.


Middletown North's Brian Haddow

This is an impressive run by Haddow as he breaks a tackle in the second level and races to the end zone during the Lions' 35-10 win over Brick Memorial. Haddow finished with 130 yards rushing and three touchdowns.


Holmdel's Jaden Gallo

Now you see him, now you don't. Gallo has had a great season thus far and on this 58-yard touchdown run he hits the hole and is gone in a flash. He finished with 155 yards rushing and two touchdowns to lead the Hornets to a 35-16 win over Jackson Memorial


Howell's Conner Gordon

Howell rallied for a wild 33-28 win over Lacey after being down 21-0 in the first half. This special teams play helped jump-start the Rebels on their way to their first win of the season. Gordon also ran for 132 yards and three touchdowns on 14 carries.


Jackson Memorial's Albert D'Alessandro

This is a great fake by D'Alessandro, luring the entire Holmdel front seven toward the running back before pulling it and taking it all the way for an 88-yard touchdown.


Lacey's Michael Abode and Matt McClung

The Lions pulled off another trick play this past week with Abode taking the handoff on a jet sweep before pulling up and hitting McClung for the touchdown.


Manalapan's Anthony Macchio

The turning point in Manalapan's 21-15 win over Southern came after the Rams cut Manalapan's lead to 7-6 in the third quarter. Macchio took the ensuing kickoff and raced 91 yards to the end zone to put the Braves back up by a touchdown.


Manchester's Tyrone Benjamin and Savon Myers

Benjamin runs a quick slant over the middle, takes the pass from Myers and outruns Jackson Liberty's defense for a 65-yard touchdown that helped the Hawks earn a 34-20 victory.


Rumson-Fair Haven's John Lista

Rumson's standout linebacker has been exceptional this year and on Friday came up with a game-changing play by returning an interception 90 yards for a touchdown in the Bulldogs' 37-7 win over Toms River North.
