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 140,000 votes cast so far this season.

The winner of the Week 9 readers’ vote for the Shore Sports Network Football Player of the Week is St. John Vianney senior defensive end Nick Densieski, who recorded eight tackles, including four hits for a loss, while also notching two sacks in St. John Vianney’s 48-7 win over Monmouth Regional.

St. John Vianney’s defense is among the best in the Shore Conference allowing just 10 points a game, and Densieski has had another great season as a pass-rushing force. His 10 sacks on the season put him near the top of the Shore Conference, and he also has 37 tackles with eight hits for a loss. Densieski was a Shore Sports Network first-team All-Shore selection last season.

The Lancers’ win over Monmouth completed a perfect regular season and clinched the program’s fourth straight Shore Conference Class A Central division title. St. John Vianney has also now won 38 straight games versus Shore Conference teams.

Densieski and the Lancers earned the No. 4 seed in the NJSIAA Non-Public Group III playoffs and will host Camden Catholic (7-1) in the quarterfinals. SJV is looking to win its second state championship and first since 1980. The Lancers last reached the Non-Public Group III final in 2015.

The St. John Vianney faithful voted early and often to give Densieski the win with 65.65 percent of the vote.
