West Essex finished with two interceptions and notable performances came from Chris CorboChrisCorbo6'3" | WRWest Essex | 2022StateNJ, Vincent Panzarino and Joseph Visaggio. East Orange: East Orange made quite a statement this past Saturday afternoon in a 36-0 rout of then-undefeated Clifton. It was a complete two-way performance, too. East Orange had its fourth shutout performance of the year. Jaguar quarterback Raeden Oliver, despite only completing 50 percent of his throws, went for 206 yards and found receiving weapon Quahlee Chambers seven times, and on both passing scores. Chambers was a nightmare matchup for Clifton, as he finished with 142 receiving yards. Chambers was good on slants, on vertical routs, on curl routes. He took advantage of man coverage. DeAndre Harrison and Sharif Bryan both scored on fumble returns, and the Jaguars were just as strong defensively. East Orange had eight sacks in total, with Harrison and Moungue Nyame each with two sacks. Locksley BurkeLocksleyBurke5'9" | LBEast Orange | 2021StateNJ played with force on defense with 19 tackles and a sack.

Jaden Leggett, Notre Dame: Notre Dame rallied from an 18-7 halftime deficit and defeated Trenton, 24-18, in Week 7. While Ricky Spruil finished with 112 rushing yards and did his damage on the ground, Leggett was the weapon at receiver, and he made some big plays in the passing game. Leggett hauled in TD passes of 36 and 42 yards from quarterback Shane Johnson that ignited Notre Dame in key moments. Josh Harmon, Rumson-Fair Haven: Harmon and Rumson-Fair Haven handed Colts Neck, one of the remaining undefeated teams in the Shore Conference heading into the week, its first loss of the season. While John Volker and Geoffrey Schroeder did the majority of the work in Saturday’s game – combining for 38 carries, 150 yards and two TDs – Harmon made the most of his opportunities in the passing game. While he just threw seven times, Harmon was effective, completing six of those passes, two for scores. His receiving weapon was Patrick Jamin, who made TD receptions of 11 and 23 yards, including a big score in the fourth quarter to make it a two-score game. Matt Garatty, Phillipsburg: Garatty and the Stateliners dominated Ridge this past Friday night. The Phillipsburg senior went 10-for-15 for 261 yards and three touchdowns in the team’s 42-17 win. Garatty spread the ball around, connecting with Matt QuetelMattQuetel5'10" | RBPhillipsburg | 2021StateNJ, Jalil Terrel and Declan Marron on his TD throws. He got it done in the short game and on long throws against the Red Devils. Dean Denobile, Morris Catholic: Denobile led Morris Catholic to 5-2 behind a 46-35 victory over Hopatcong this past Friday night.

Tyler Holzworth, Delaware Valley: Holzworth, a Delaware Valley senior, scored on a 12-yard run in overtime that propelled the Terriers to a massive 20-14 victory over Hillside. On the team’s first play in OT, Holzworth ran to his right side and found an opening for the score that gave Delaware Valley the victory. The team bounced back from a tough loss to Bernards the week before. The Holzworth score came after Delaware Valley stuffed Hillside on a 4th-and-1 on the Terrier 16-yard line. After an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, Holzworth followed his blockers and forgot about the muddy conditions on his way to the game-deciding 12-yard run. The Del Val playmaker also scored on a 5-yard run earlier in the game, and he finished with six receptions for 55 yards. Logan BlakeLoganBlake6'6" | WRDelaware Valley | 2022StateNJ had a strong showing as well for the Terriers with 12 receptions for 55 yards and a 10-yard reception for six. Holzworth also made an interception on defense.
