Welcome to the 2020 edition of the Shore Sports Network’s top plays, highlighting the most dazzling and exciting moments from Shore Conference football action, brought to you by Jersey Shore Institute of Health and Wellness.

This week we take a look at the top clips from Week 2. We can’t be filming every game at once, so if you have a great clip on Hudl, YouTube, Vimeo or some other service where it can be embedded, or if you have the raw video file, feel free to email me a link at or tweet it to me at @Bob_Badders.

Now let's get to the top plays from Week 2, listed in no particular order.

Bonus clip: DJ Thomson, Keyport

We start off with a clip I inadvertently forgot to include last week. Keyport wide receiver DJ Thomson lays out to make a diving catch for a TD vs. Gov. Livingston.


John Volker, Rumson-Fair Haven

It's looking like Mr. Volker is going to be a regular contributor to the Plays of the Week feature. Volker had 156 yards and three touchdowns in a 28-0 win over Long Branch and although this was his shortest scoring run, he pulled off a sweet spin move close to the sideline to get into the end zone.


Mike Madera, Toms River East

The Raiders suffered a lopsided 47-7 loss to Donovan Catholic but Madera was able to make his mark by stepping in front of a pass for an interception that he returned 86 yards for a touchdown.


Jack Huber, Toms River South

Huber makes his second straight appearance in the Plays of the Week with this 82-yard touchdown run during the Indians' 42-6 win over Lakewood


Casey Larkin, Wall

It was a four-touchdown night for Larkin in Wall's 44-0 win over Neptune and this one was a dandy. He keeps his balance after the first hit before juking a pair of defenders near the sideline to finish off a 36-yard touchdown run.


Sha'Kim Shuler, Freehold

Freehold was literally unstoppable in the first quarter against Colts Neck, scoring on each of its first three offensive plays. On the Colonials' third play from scrimmage, Shuler busted loose for a 91-yard touchdown run.


Justin Hirsch, Jackson Memorial

Jackson's defense was the story in a 26-0 win over Manasquan, but Hirsch did his best to steal some of their thunder by winning a jump ball against the defensive back for a 16-yard touchdown catch on fourth down.


Najih Rahman, Red Bank Catholic

It's only been two weeks but it's clear that RBC sophomore Najih Rahman is among the Shore's best wideouts. Check out this fantastic one-handed catch to reign in a 20-yard touchdown. Also, props to senior quarterback Anthony Borriello for avoiding the sack to get the pass off.


Tom Schork, Middletown South

Schork had two touchdown runs in the Eagles' 32-25 win over Red Bank Catholic and also delivered this huge defensive play with a 68-yard interception return for a touchdown.


Jayon Farrar, Donovan Catholic

The returning first-team All-Shore wideout has made an immediate impact with Donovan Catholic and plays like this show why he's among the state's best receivers.


James Bivins, Donovan Catholic

Bivins is a burner, plain and simple. He takes a jet sweep, finds a hole, slips through a tackle and then turns on the jets to outrace three Toms River East defenders for a 74-yard touchdown run.
