Vote for This Week’s High School Athlete of the Week
Wesley Hills does it again. The Wildwood standout has picked up his second 97.3 ESPN High School Athlete of the Week award, as he continues to pile up the yards and touchdowns.
Meanwhile, we have a new batch of local student-athletes who have proven themselves on the field this week. You can vote for your pick, and hear the winner announced on the South Jersey Sports Report with Tyler Donohue Saturday morning at 9:00.
Jarren McBryde, Football, Atlantic City — The Vikings quarterback connected on two touchdown passes and accumulated 210 yards through the air to lead Atlantic City to a 19-7 victory over Hammonton. McBryde came up big on defense as well, snatching an interception that halted Hammonton’s best second-half scoring chance.
Jake Bleyhl, Soccer, Buena – The Chiefs goalie blanked Lower Cape Regional Wednesday to become the school’s all-time leader in shutouts. Bleyhl broke a 15-year mark with his 16th career shutout. He’s served up nine bagels so far this season.
Amber Cobb, Soccer, Cedar Creek – She led the Cedar Creek charge with a hat trick against Sacred Heart. Cobb collected three goals in the Pirates 6-0 win.
Wes Hills, Football, Wildwood – The senior running back has become a mainstay as a nominee on this list throughout the fall. Hills scored five total touchdowns, including a 60-yard punt return, during a 42-16 victory over Salem.
The St. Joe offensive line – We often throw the spotlight on individual playmakers who routinely reach the end zone, but it’s time to give a nod in the direction of the Wildcats front five. St. Joe rushed for 401 yards in a 39-0 victory over Oakcrest, as six Wildcats gained at least 30 yards on the ground. St. Joe has won 23 consecutive contests.
