Surf Taco Football Player of the Week: Monmouth Regional’s Yassin Moore
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 7 Player of the Week is Monmouth Regional senior Yassin Moore, who had three scoring plays to help the Falcons edge Pinelands, 16-15, and pick up their second win of the season. Moore will receive a $25 Surf Taco gift card.
Moore ran for a career-high 117 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries and also ran for a pair of 2-point conversions to account for 10 of Monmouth’s 16 points. He also recorded a team-high eight tackles on defense and averaged 33.5 yards on two punts, including dropping one inside the 20-yard line.
In six games played this season, Moore has rushed for 429 yards and five touchdowns on an average of six yards per carry, caught a touchdown pass and scored 10 two-point conversions.
Moore and the Falcons will conclude their season this Thursday night in a road game vs. Matawan.
Moore was the runaway winner in this week’s poll, securing nearly half of all votes cast.
