Wall High School Long Snapper and North Carolina State commit Joe Shimko is ranked 4th in the Rubio Long Snapper Rankings for the Class of 2019, and on Thursday, he was presented with his All-American Bowl jersey. The Top 100 High School Football players are chosen to play in the Bowl, and Shimko is the first Wall football player to receive this honor. A long snapper is a niche player, and Joe has been working on perfecting his craft for two years. Shimko says he wanted to get playing time his sophomore year, and he thought the position as a long snapper would give him that opportunity. Joe’s friends, family and teammates gathered on Thursday morning for his ceremony at Wall High School to share this special moment. JSZ’s Madison Bess has the story:
JSZ has been there for each of the New Jersey All-American Bowl jersey presentations so far this week: Penn State commit and Hun School offensive lineman Caedan Wallace, Alabama commit and Colonia defensive end Antonio Alfano and Shimko. Tomorrow JSZ will be at DePaul Catholic for WR/DB Ronnie Hickman’s ceremony. Stay tuned for more great football coverage from Jersey Sports Zone the rest of this season!
