Burger 25 Football Plays of the Week
Shore Regional's Jamie Mazzacco
Mazzacco dazzled on this 86-yard touchdown run during Shore's 42-0 win over Pinelands
Freehold Township's Mark Augello and Anthony Long
Augello set a school single-game record with five touchdown passes in the Patriots' 35-33 win over rival Howell, including this Long strike (pun intended).
Raritan's Joe Campanella and Ben Hutchins
Big plays have been a regular part of Raritan's game this season and this was another between quarterback Ben Hutchins and dynamic wideout Joe Campanella.
Brick Memorial's Jake LaRocca and Connor Dietz
The Mustangs pulled off this trick play against Marlboro with LaRocca taking the ball on what looked like a reverse only to pull up and hit Dietz, Brick Memorial's QB, for the pass. Dietz does the rest with some moves downfield for a 55-yard touchdown.
Donovan Catholic's Dante Vernieri
There was Revis Island and now there's Dante's Inferno. The Donovan Catholic junior linebacker now has five interceptions on the season, including four(!) that he has returned for touchdowns. The latest was a 70-yard pick-6 in the Griffins' 42-0 win over Rahway.
Holmdel's Jaden Gallo
Two highlights from Gallo from his 199-yard performance in the Hornets' 30-24 win over Raritan. Check out the stiff arm on the 57-yard touchdown run.
Lacey's Noah Brunatti and Matt McClung
The Lions rallied for a dramatic 27-21 victory over Colts Neck and this touchdown pass with 25 seconds left provided the winning points.
Manalapan's Michael Bimonte
Bimonte had two touchdowns in Manalapan's 39-7 win over Freehold, headlined by this 72-yard scoop and score.
Manasquan's Patrick Woodford
This long touchdown run in the second broke the game open in Manasquan's 41-0 win over Toms River East. Great move by Woodford at the 25-yard line to shake the final defender and get into the end zone.
Marlboro's Zach Mendes
Mendes had a huge day in the Mustangs' win over Brick Memorial with 224 yards rushing and four touchdowns, including this 49-yard scoring run.
Middletown North's Brian Haddow
Middletown North scored the go-ahead touchdown with 51 seconds left on a pass from Tommy Giannone to Zac Searight during a 24-21 win over St. John Vianney, and it was this fantastic catch in traffic by Haddow that put the ball at the 2-yard line and set up the winning TD.
Neptune's DaVon Craft
The Scarlet Fliers have rebounded nicely after a tough start and this past weekend knocked off Brick, 22-8. This long touchdown run by Craft with under four minutes to play sealed the deal.
Point Beach's Joe Beley and Andrew Laumbach
Point Beach fell to Barnegat, 27-7, but the Garnet Gulls' only touchdown was a thing of beauty. First, Beley does a great job avoiding a sack and scrambling to get off a throw. He launches a bomb 40 yards in the air to Laumbach, who makes the catch and shakes off the defender for a 60-yard TD.
Point Boro's Connor Cilento
Point Boro's offense continues to ring up opponents. This past Saturday it was a 49-6 win over Monmouth Regional and Cilento had a huge day with 146 yards rushing and three touchdowns on just five carries, including this 49-yard TD.
Red Bank's Gus Dal Pra
Red Bank's special teams were extraordinary in the Bucs' 42-34 win over Matawan with three touchdowns, one of which was this blocked punt and scoop and score from Dal Pra.
Howell's Nick Vecchiarelli and Kevin Maloney
The Freehold Township-Howell game had some huge plays and this tops the list. Vecchiarelli takes the swing pass, avoids the pass rush, and hits a wide-open Maloney for a 72-yard score on a WR pass. Maloney had a monster night with six catches for 194 yards and three touchdowns.
Red Bank Catholic's Torin Harmon
Harmon gave the Caseys the lead in the second quarter with this 48-yard touchdown run during RBC's 21-14 win over Rumson.
Keyport's DJ Thomson
Thomson has had an incredible senior season and that continued during the Red Raiders' 30-14 win over rival Keansburg to improve to 6-1. How about this 80-yard jet sweep for a touchdown.
