Football: RBC’s Shawn McCord Commits to St. Francis (Pa.)
Red Bank Catholic senior defensive end Shawn McCord, a Shore Sports Network first-team All-Shore selection, verbally committed to St. Francis (Pa.), a Football Championship Subdivision program, on Monday night.
One of the top pass rushers in the Shore Conference, McCord was a force off the edge for a Caseys’ defense that allowed only 7.7 points per game, the second-best mark in the Shore Conference. The defensive end, who was an All-Class A Central pick by the coaches, had 66 tackles, 10.5 sacks and 8 tackles for a loss for the Caseys. In a state playoff win over Immaculata, he had 9 tackles and a season-high 3 sacks, and he added 7 tackles in a win over Central Jersey Group II champion Rumson-Fair Haven.
