Surf Taco Football Player of the Week: Colts Neck’s Tommy Fallon
Every week this season, Shore Conference football fans will have their chance to vote for the Surf Taco/Shore Sports Network Football Player of the Week on our website.
The Week 6 Player of the Week is Colts Neck junior quarterback Tommy Fallon, who had a great game on the ground and through the air to lead the No. 6 Cougars to a 34-0 win over Monmouth Regional that completed a perfect 6-0 regular season. Fallon will receive a $25 Surf Taco gift card.
Fallon ran for 135 yards and a touchdown on just five carries, averaging an unreal 27 yards per carry, and was perfect through the air in completing 7 of 7 passes for 44 yards and a touchdown. He started the scoring by breaking off a 73-yard touchdown run to give Colts Neck a quick 7-0 lead. He then tossed a 5-yard touchdown pass to Anthony Bonanno to send the Cougars on their way to a convincing win.
Fallon has piloted the Cougars power-running offense to perfection this year with bruising, downhill runs of his own and timely passes. The three-year starter has rushed for 368 yards and a touchdown on an average of 8.4 yards per carry and has completed 63 percent of his passes for 508 yards and four touchdowns with only one interception. Colts Neck is averaging 30 points per game.
After an undefeated regular season, Colts Neck will get an opportunity to test itself against a Shore Conference powerhouse in Week 7. For the NJSIAA Post-Season Groupings, Colts Neck has been placed in a pod with No. 5 Rumson-Fair Haven, No. 7 Freehold and No. 8 Southern Regional and will host Rumson on Saturday afternoon.
Fallon won a very close poll by securing 16.45 percent of the vote to win over Wall’s Colin Riley. Asbury Park’s Na’Jier Massey finished third.
