He is one of five New Jersey players selected to play in the 2019 All-American Bowl and is committed to play for Nick Saban’s Alabama Crimson Tide. Alfano dominated his competition in the Greater Middlesex Conference with 79 tackles and 10 sacks this season, along with a staggering 28 tackles for losses. JSZ’s Jay Cook gives you the inside-look at what makes Alfano such a highly-touted prospect: Jada Byers, St. Joseph (Hamm.) Running Back Byers was as electric as they come in the Garden State during his junior campaign. He looked like he was shot out of a cannon with the ball in his hands, rushing for 1,741 yards and 29 touchdowns on the season, all while helping power his St. Joe’s Wildcats to yet another Non-Public Group 2 championship. JSZ’s Nery Rodriguez takes you down to Hammonton for a behind-the-scenes look at South Jersey’s most electrifying runner: Jalahn Dabney, Somerville Quarterback Dabney took over the starting quarterback job in Somerville at the end of the 2017 season and showcased his dynamic playmaking ability well throughout 2018. He compiled 3,444 yards from scrimmage this season and reached the end-zone 56 times to lead one of New Jersey’s most dangerous offenses. JSZ’s Courtney DuPont tells us what makes this dual-threat quarterback tick: Nick Kargman, Woodrow Wilson Quarterback Kargman will graduate from Woodrow Wilson with plenty of state records compiled during his senior season. The decorated South Jersey passer broke the state record single season passing mark with 3,963 yards and his 41 passing scores rank atop the state lists, as well. But what’s even more impressive is Kargman’s character off the field, as it’s made him an important part of the Woodrow Wilson community. JSZ’s Nery Rodriguez tells us what makes Kargman so special: Rahmir Johnson, Bergen Catholic Running Back Johnson became the first Bergen Catholic rusher to break the 1,000-yard mark since 2008, a true testament to the level of competition that the Crusaders face on a week-to-week basis. After teammate Josh McKenzie went down with a torn ACL, Johnson assumed the full-time starting role and showcased his elite speed and craftiness all season long. He closed 2018 with 1,334 yards and 11 rushing scores. JSZ’s Jay Cook has the story about this humble teammate and Nebraska commit: Steve Lubischer, Red Bank Catholic Quarterback Intelligence and athleticism is the blend of characteristics that has made Lubischer one of New Jersey’s most talented signal callers. At Red Bank Catholic, Lubischer blossomed into a premier dual-threat passer who had the ability to break the game on any down. JSZ’s chief operating officer Rich Chrampanis followed Lubischer’s trajectory all season long and tells us why this Boston College commit is so special: Other Top Vote-Getters Only the top-six vote-getters are on our Zoneman podium, but there were other plenty of players around the Garden State who had great seasons and garnered votes from coaches and media around the state. Those players were: 7th Place: Taquan Roberson, DePaul Catholic quarterback: Roberson, a Penn State commit, closed out his senior season in masterful fashion for the Spartans. He threw 29 touchdowns for 2,432 yards and will go down as one of the most decorated quarterbacks to play in New Jersey. 8th Place: Jalen Berger, Don Bosco Prep running back: Berger led one of New Jersey’s most talented backfields at Don Bosco Prep by displaying elite patience and explosiveness. Only a junior, he holds offers from top-tier Power 5 college football programs and has plenty more in the tank for his senior year. 9th Place: Juwon Jackson, Piscataway running back: Jackson was a main reason why Piscataway reached a 13-0 record and won both a sectional title and a newly-minted “Bowl Game” at MetLife Stadium. He rushed for 1,898 yards and 31 touchdowns on the season. 10th Place: Ronnie Hickman, DePaul Catholic wide receiver/defensive back: Hickman was arguably the most dangerous two-way player in New Jersey. Committed to Ohio State, Hickman was one of five New Jersey football players selected to the 2019 All-American Bowl. His senior season was unfortunately cut short due to a torn ACL late in the year. Josh Henderson wins JSZ 2018 Prep Player of the Year Hun running back and University of North Carolina commit Josh Henderson was named JSZ’s 2018 Prep Player of the Year. Henderson accepted his award during JSZ’s 2nd annual All-Zone football banquet in Woodbridge.

The 2018 high school baseball season saw sensational performances on the mound, incredible web gems, and clutch hits. Jersey Sports Zone captured hundreds of great moments and here are the Top 10 most viewed games on Jersey Sports Zone from last season in New Jersey high school baseball: #10: Toms River South 6 Brick Township 5 Legendary Coach Ken Frank and The Toms River South Indians found themselves in a rare position on Monday afternoon, winless through the first 3 games of 2018. Tied at 5 with Brick Township in the bottom of the 7th, South got a clutch double down the line in left by Jordan Erbe, followed up by an infield single off the bat of Shane Gibson to give the Indians a 6-5 walk-off win.

2018 Gordon Conference Cup Playoffs Don Bosco Prep – 5 St. Augustine Prep – 4 in OT The undefeated Don Bosco Prep Ironmen found themselves in unfamiliar territory on their home ice, trailing twice in the final two periods to St. Augustine Prep in the Gordon Cup Semi-Final. Both times that Don Bosco found themselves down, they were able to mount a comeback. Captains George Weiner and Mickey Burns scored crucial goals in the 2nd, to give the Ironmen a 3-2 lead, but we would end regulation tied at 4 and head to a sudden death overtime. Tsubasa Konishi put in the game winner for Don Bosco just nine seconds into OT to keep the Ironmen unbeaten and secure a spot in the Gordon Cup Final vs Delbarton School.

Trenton Catholic 56 No. 20 St. Augustine 54 With county tournaments starting this week it marks the closing of the regular season for basketball. Trenton Catholic might have eight losses on the year, but when you consider six of those are to NJ Top 20 teams, the Iron Mike’s are still one tough opponent. SNo. 20 Aut. Augustine led for three quarters and went ahead by as much as 15. Khalif Battle began to slowly make a dent in the lead to the lead to bring TCA within three. Late in the fourth Trenton Catholic was ahead by one when the Hermits drew a foul that sent Travis Stroll to the foul line where he would tie it up at 54 with eight seconds remaining. However, it would be the heroics of Quashawn Lane who delivered a last second buzzer beater to help upset the No. 20 team in the state. Watch the highlights and post game reaction now!
