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 120,000 votes cast so far this season.

The winner of the Week 7 readers’ vote for the Shore Sports Network Football Player of the Week is Point Boro senior quarterback James Fara, who accounted for 288 total yards and four touchdowns in a 48-7 victory over Jackson Liberty that clinched at least a share of the Class B South division title.

Fara completed 7 of 9 passes for 181 yards and a touchdown and ran for 107 yards and three touchdowns on 14 carries. Fara had touchdown runs of 26, 10 and 1 yards and tossed a 16-yard touchdown pass to senior fullback Tanner Gordon. Fara now has 853 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns on 118 carries along with 401 yards passing and four touchdowns with a 57 percent completion rate this season.

Point Boro is undefeated at 7-0 and ranked No. 8 in the Shore Sports Network Top 10. They face Ocean (1-6) in a nondivisional game on Friday night but can clinch the B South title outright if Lakewood defeats Barnegat. If not, Point Boro faces Barnegat in Week 9 and can clinch the title in that game.

Once again, the Player of the Week vote was a two-man race between Point Boro and Lacey. Fara edged Lacey running back Jason Giresi by five-tenths of a percentage point with 44.7 percent of the vote. Giresi ran for 190 yards and two touchdowns in a 56-28 win over Donovan Catholic.
