Phillips’ Viral Run Captures First 2018 Top Football Play Award

After dazzling Weequahic football fans and then over 2 million viewers around the world, Weequahic High School senior Tyler Phillips captured the first JSZ Top Football Play award this season. Phillips took a botched punt snap on 4th down for 65 yards to the house against Morris Catholic in Week Zero while breaking almost a dozen tackles on the play. The play went viral in under 24 hours and was featured on ESPN’s First Take and social media pages for House of Highlights and Bleacher Report.

Here’s JSZ’s presentation to Phillips with our newest award:
