Top 10 Plays of the Week, 10/1/14
Welcome to the latest edition of the Shore Sports Network’s top plays, highlighting the most dazzling and exciting moments from Shore Conference football action.
This week we take a look at the top clips from Week Three. Every week, if you have a great clip on YouTube, Vimeo or some other service where it can be embedded, feel free to email me a link at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet it to me at @Scott_Stump.
Here we go.
10. First-round J.O.
Let's kick things off with a...kickoff. One in which Brick's Jay Obenauer smashes the ballcarrier during the Green Dragons' win over Toms River East.
9. Piner power.
Speaking of smacking returners on special teams, here's Lakewood's Datrell Reed against Manchester.
8. Nick the quick.
Keeping with the punt theme, here is Red Bank Catholic senior Nick Lubischer juking a few Neptune defenders out of their shoes on a pair of punt returns for the Caseys.
7. Jaguar on the loose.
One more punt play. Southern does a quick kick, and Jackson Memorial's Aaron Curet scoops it off the ground, makes a few defenders miss and then spins around another defender at midfield.
6. Chicks dig the long ball.
There were a lot of great bombs for touchdowns, so here's a sampling from Week Three.
Manalapan's Dan Anerella unloads a strike to Brian Conforth in Manalapan's strafing of Sayreville.
Lakewood's Chapelle Cook finds a wide-open Adiam Palmer against Manchester.
Toms River North's Mike Husni hits tight end Jordan Craig, who stiff arms a defender on the way to gliding in for a score against Toms River South.
Brick's Carmen Sclafani hits sophomore wideout Ja'Sir Taylor, who has gone nuts with seven touchdowns in the past two games, and Taylor does the rest, juking a defender on his way to the house
Barnegat's Cinjun Erskine chucks a bomb to Paul Wickwire in the Bengals' win over Jackson Liberty.
5. 'Field' of dreams.
Manalapan's Imamu Mayfield went off for a career-high 247 yards and five touchdowns in a 64-28 burial of Sayreville. He looks like he's playing at a whole other speed on this one. You can watch them all here.
4. Indian party.
You could probably do a top 10 of highlights for Tymere Berry alone every week. First, though, let's give his teammate, Javion Harris, some love for this double okey-doke on a quick wide receiver screen.
Now we get to Berry, who scored five touchdowns in the loss to Toms River North. First is the 26-yard TD where he puts the brakes on and dusts two defenders to bring the house down at Detwiler Stadium.
Berry then added a 16-yard touchdown run and did what any reasonable human being would do in the midst of a performance like that. He busted out the Schmoney dance as amateur "Dancing With the Stars" judge Ed Sarluca of Shore Sports Network looked on.
3. Let's see some Moorer that.
These last couple are all awesome. It's debatable which one could be the play of the week. Here is Toms River North's tank of a running back, Asante Moorer, bouncing off tacklers against Toms River South.
2. The Tyler Twist.
Lakewood's Amir Tyler cuts it back and then busts out a video game-worthy spin move before pulling away from another defender's last grasp for a TD against Manchester.
1. What 'chu talkin' 'bout Willis?!
I'm talking about the No. 1 play of the week, turned in by Long Branch senior standout Dahmiere Willis. He seemingly got hit by every member of Wall's defense and kept spinning and churning until he found the end zone for a pretty crazy run. I also threw in one of him snatching a pitch with one hand that looked like it was going over his head and cutting across the field for another TD.
