Let’s take a look at who made some head-turning plays in Week Four.
7. Maxx-iumum Effort
Middletown South's defense has come up with big plays each week for the 4-0 Eagles, and here Maxx Imsho takes an interception back 67 yards for a touchdown against Freehold Township.
6. Late Heroics
Donovan Catholic pulled out a 23-20 double overtime win over Barnegat on a Gian Carlo Stigliano 24-yard field goal, and Pete Schlendorf sealed the victory with a fumble recovery.
5. Brock on the Spot
In Middletown North's huge 18-8 win over Manalapan, Brock Zenker came up with a crucial fumble return for a touchdown after Dwight Wilkerson jarred the ball free.
4. Tony the Truck
Brick Memorial sophomore fullback Tony Thorpe runs over a Toms River East defender on a 30-yard touchdown run. Thorpe ran for 212 yards and four touchdowns in the Mustangs' 44-6 win. He was breaking tackles on every run, including a 38-yard touchdown later in the game.
3. Brown Bomber
The intense wind and rain that fell last Friday made passing an adventure, but somehow St. John Vianney senior quarterback Anthony Brown found a way to unleash a 75-yard touchdown pass to Marcque Ellington in a 13-6 win over Rumson.
2. Saved by the Ark
Senior Arkeyel Brown had a huge all-around game in Keansburg's 18-13 win over South River, and made the play of the game when he takes the ball right out of the South River quarterback's hands at the 2-yard line with just seconds left in the game. He also had a 70-yard rushing touchdown earlier in the game.
1. Husni Hammer
This came in a blowout, but was a ridiculous individual effort. Toms River North junior quarterback Mike Husni cuts back across the field twice on an incredible 81-yard touchdown run on the first play of the game versus Marlboro.
