Orthopaedic Institute of Central Jersey Football Player of the Week: Point Beach’s Luke Frauenheim
Every week this regular season, Shore Conference football fans will have their chance to vote for the Orthopaedic Institute of Central Jersey/Shore Sports Network Football Player of the Week on our website, with over 55,000 votes cast so far this season.
The winner of the Week 3 readers' vote for the Shore Conference Football Player of the Week is Point Beach quarterback/linebacker Luke Frauenheim, who ran for 116 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries, threw for 101 yards and a touchdown and made seven tackles, including two for loss, to help lead the Garnet Gulls to a 22-19 comeback victory over Asbury Park.
Frauenheim had a 27-yard touchdown pass to Josh Yates in the first quarter and ran for a 6-yard touchdown in the third quarter as the Garnet Gulls closed to within 19-14 after trailing 19-8 at halftime. He also had a two-point conversion pass, and his defensive play helped Point Beach shut out Asbury Park in the second half.
The Garnet Gulls are now 3-0 and tied with Mater Dei Prep for first place in Class B Central. They'll look to move to 4-0 when they host Middlesex on Friday night.
Frauenheim edged out Red Bank Catholic running back Zack Bair with 42.04 percent of over 30,000 votes cast during the three-day voting period. Bair ran for 187 yards and four touchdowns on just 10 carries in the Caseys' 47-0 win over Ocean. Brick Memorial running back Tony Thorpe was a distant third in the voting after a 158-yard, three-touchdown effort in the Mustangs' 35-0 win over Toms River South.
