The proof of Barnes’ impact is in the pudding for the Cougars, a team that doubled its win total from two to four last season.

JSZ Blog: Even the Story Teller Has a Story
To the players, coaches, parents, and fans out there. To the readers, followers, and viewers of our content. To those who have supported Shore Sports Zone over the past three years, and to those who are new. Jersey Sports Zone is officially here, and I would like to welcome you to this new and exciting company, and say how thankful I am to have you along for the ride. I would like to introduce myself, and tell you about my passion and plans for this new venture. I have always been the “behind the scenes” guy, my focus being on on finding and telling the stories of others. Editing, creating, and mixing, piece by piece, video by video. None of which ever really included myself. But, even the story teller has a story. Right? I remember a cold January afternoon in Neptune, New Jersey. I was an eight year old boy, gripping my father’s hand as we headed into the gymnasium for the Scarlet Flier’s annual Holiday Jubilee. We grabbed what seemed to be the only available seats in the building. Just as I settled into my seat and picked up my head, there was a flash across the gym. A player had stolen the ball, sprinted down the court and rose into the air, throwing down a rim rattling acrobatic dunk like nothing I had ever seen before. I turned to my father and asked “Who is that!?” He simply replied “That’s J.R.”. That player of course being NBA Champion and Cleveland Cavalier Guard JR Smith, who at the time was a long and lanky 11th grader at Lakewood High School. There was no internet fame, or multi million dollar contract yet, but you certainly wouldn’t know it by being in his presence. There was an aura around JR, and it was an entirely fresh experience for me. He was a star. I knew it, every fan in the gym knew it, and most undoubtedly, JR Smith knew it. That “aura” is not a requisite of greatness, but the great ones usually have it. It’s when a player can walk into a room full of people that know nothing of him or her, but know immediately that he/she is someone. From that point on, I was hooked, I wanted to find more players that captivated audiences, drew crowds by the thousands, and ticket lines so long that my legs would ache by tip off. My father and I began traveling the state, tri-state, and eventually all over the Northeast. Attending showcases, tournaments, and games featuring the best players in the country. Every season was a new start, a chance to discover another star, and the opportunity to years down the line say ‘I was there when..” I was there when LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony squared off as high schoolers, dazzling college and pro scouts while drawing ooh’s and aah’s from the crowd in Trenton. I was there to see many of DaJaun Wagner’s unfathomable and entertaining state record 3,462 career points. I was there at Rutgers in 2011, for what some considered the game of a life time, No. 1 St. Patrick’s vs No. 2 St Anthony. A sold out National Championship prizefight, disguised as a Non-Public B North Final. Bob Hurley’s Friars getting the better of Kevin Boyle’s Celtic’s en route to a perfect 33-0 season and Hurley’s 26th State Championship. Then came 2013, I wanted a way to document my experiences at these events. The amazing players and moments deserved to be archived and shared. I began filming the games I attended, sitting in the stands with my iPhone, anxiously awaiting an exciting play or exhilarating slam dunk. The footage certainly wasn’t award winning. It was out of focus, not in frame, and a bit shaky. I wasn’t entirely sure of what I was doing, but it seemed to be working, and I was loving every minute of it. Video by video, my views, followers, and subscribers began to grow. This was all thanks to the amazing players I covered. I would like to name a few that helped me me along the way; Mike Gesicki, Karl Towns Jr., Isaiah Briscoe, Ben Simmons, The Ball Brothers, Leondre Washington, Bryan Antoine, and Scottie Lewis. The names, games, teams, and moments could be listed on and on. All of which have contributed to where I am today. Bringing high definition highlights to all of you, and telling the stories of New Jersey’s best athletes. Providing exposure and shining light where it belongs. From an iPhone, to a Best Buy CamCorder, to a full on professional camera that I use today. The evolution and progression has been steady. Self teaching, and practicing. Perfecting my craft to the best of my ability. Nothing was planned, only discovered along the way. Art is truly about finding a way to express yourself, and video is my way of doing that. The camera is my paint brush, this laptop is my canvas. Creating something special and sharing it with others is what I love to do. This is what I will continue to do with Jersey Sports Zone and I cannot be more thrilled about it. Whether it be a simple game highlight, or a long form documentary. Shining a light and providing exposure for young athletes and their dreams, the only way I know how to. Rich Chrampanis had asked me put something together to get people excited about our new company. I chose what only came natural to me. Here are some of my favorite and most memorable basketball moments from the last few years. Enjoy and Thank You for your time! Alexander Lorenzo Videographer/Producer Jersey Sports Zone ATTENTION ATHLETES We want to give you a space to tell your story. We take great pride in providing positive promotion of high school athletes. Throughout the year, we’ll ask athletes from all sports to contribute their own blog entries to learn what it takes to succeed on and off the field.

SSZ’s Top 10 Videos of 2016
An incredible year of high school sports in the Shore Conference is capped off with a look back at the best moments captured by Shore Sports Zone cameras Looking Back on 2016 by Shore Sports Zone owner and managing editor Rich Chrampanis 453 Four hundred and fifty three is the number of games and events that Shore Sports Zone cameras were able to capture in 2016. We are grateful for the generous support of each and every one of you who fuel us with kind words and compliments and support us by watching the great moments we capture on a daily basis. Coming up with Top 10 lists are always subjective and it’s just one man’s opinion, but the process is fun. The fact that dramatic overtime wins, walk-off moments and historic victories did not crack this list is a testament to how many great moments the athletes in the Shore Conference produces. #10: Frankie Tagliaferri’s Mastery in the SCT Finals It would have been so easy for the Colts Neck soccer star to “big time” high school soccer after playing for the US Under 17 National Team in the World Cup and scoring two goals in international competition. Yet, she returned to the Cougars and scored a season’s worth of goals in about a dozen games. This story is just beginning and soccer fans across the world will watch these videos years from now. #9: Scottie Lewis/Bryan Antoine Top 10 Dunks It’s almost unfair to hype a 9th grader, but that was the case for the Ranney duo of Scottie Lewis and Bryan Antoine, yet these two young men met the hype and then some. If you really love the game of basketball, make it a point to watch these two players showcase their wares in our backyard, because before you know it, they’ll be in the big time. #8: The end of the Dalatri/Martorano era CBA’s dominance on the diamond was a team effort, but the battery of Luca Dalatri and Brandon Martorano were the catalysts. Watching the numbers for Dalatri’s senior season were a benchmark that will be hard to replicate and Martorano has the tools on and off the field to not only be a big leaguer, but to be a true star in MLB. Watching them on the diamond for the last time as high schoolers in Lakewood was the perfect ending to their careers. #7: Saint John Vianney wins the T of C You can go all around the country scouring gyms looking for the best high school girls basketball and when it’s all said and done, it will be very hard pressed to find a better league than the Shore Conference. The Tournament of Champions is the ultimate barometer as state champions go head to head to claim the true best team in New Jersey. It was only fitting that the T of C finals was a Shore Conference affair and Saint John Vianney and Manasquan put on a spectacular show. #6: Sebastian Rivera wins state wrestling title The atmosphere of Atlantic City is tops when it comes to high school sports. Thousands of people watching one mat in the center of the arena. CBA’s Sebastian Rivera was down big in his finals match and it would have been easy to give up. But his last second pin (literally it came with one second!) was a sight to see. It’s why sports is always better than any reality TV – you can’t write a better script than this. #5: Colts Neck wins at the buzzer for sectional title Two locals battling so late in the season is always a treat. Someone is going to be happy and the atmosphere in Colts Neck’s gym was electric. Brendan Clarke will no doubt be sharing this video with his kids and grandkids many years from now. #4: PJ Ringel’s emotional tribute to Dad When PJ Ringel scored his first goal in the state soccer playoffs, I didn’t know what was going on. Sure, goals bring great emotion from the entire team, but this was different. At the half, I found out that PJ’s Dad passed away the day before in a car accident. His golden goal was something that truly transcends sports and it reminded me that there’s a lot of great kids that we cover each and every day who are on the path to great things on and off the field. #3: The Mater Dei Miracle Shore Sports Zone is all about video. We put almost all of our energy and effort into it. We don’t just want to get the highlight, we want to get it better than anyone else. Sometimes it takes a little good fortune and people staying out of the way of our lens and every once in a while it’s perfect. Alex Lorenzo got the biggest football play of the season, the Eddie Lewis hook and ladder to win the state title. He didn’t just get it, he shot it perfectly, so good that I’m worried that NFL Films is going to be calling and taking him away from SSZ. We love shooting all sports all year long, but high school football is our calling card. We love breaking down big games like ESPN breaks down the NFL and major college football. We could do a Top 10 Football list alone, but instead we give you the best of our best: #2: Jason Groome’s 19 strikeout no-hitter It’s funny, the record books will never have Barnegat’s win over Central Regional because of a forfeit due to NJSIAA transfer rules, but this video will cement forever that it actually happened. Jason Groome, in front of a sea of MLB scouts, showed why we was the first round draft pick of the Boston Red Sox. As I said in the highlights, Barnegat didn’t need to take their mitts out of the dugout for the final half of the game, because it was nothing but K’s. #1: Mater Dei’s improbable comeback in the SCT Before the Mater Dei football miracle, there was the basketball miracle. I still can’t believe it happened. In front of thousands at Monmouth University, this video will be a part of Seraphs history forever. Our New Year’s Resolution for 2017? To be back here this time next year with another Top 10 list. We talk about sponsors all the time, because it’s important to educate our audience that we can not exist without them. Every time a new business joins our team, we get to more games. We need one sponsor for every school and to continue to add sponsors like the US Army and Monmouth Building Center to allow us to showcase athletes year round. A special thanks to every one of our sponsors who have given us the chance to capture so many great moments. On behalf of every member of the Shore Sports Zone team, have a safe and Happy New Year. We won’t waste any time in 2017 – our first Monmouth Building Center Game Balls and Avon Game Puck nominees will be posted on Sunday morning!

Jack Ringel was a New York state high school basketball Hall of Famer after leading Grady High School in Brooklyn for 24 seasons winning three NYC titles and a state championship.
