NJ101.5 is doing something very special this year to honor those special athletes who excel in any given week in their respective sport. And YOU help determine the weekly winner! It’s time to cast your vote for this week’s NJ101.5 High School Athlete of the Week.

Here’s how it the voting works: Each week, we have a new group of NJ student-athletes who have shined for their respective teams. You can cast your vote for your favorite athlete. Voting ends on Friday at NOON. Find out the winner when they are announced on at 2pm. Each weekly winner will get a plaque and at the end of the school year we’ll honor all our winners with a very special awards banquet.

Here are this week’s athletes:

Football – Thomas Jefferson, Sr., RB, Passaic Tech

Jefferson exploded for a career-high 348 yards rushing, the highest total in the state this past week, and four touchdowns in Passaic Tech’s 34-6 win over Hackensack. Passaic Tech is now 3-0 and Jefferson has rushed for 721 yards in three games, nearly matching his entire output (888 yards) from his junior season.

Football – Adonis Jennings, Sr., WR, Timber Creek

Even though it came in a 50-41 loss in a wild shootout with Eastern, the Rutgers-bound Jennings was sensational with 13 catches for 288 yards and three touchdowns in addition to a 71-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. Timber Creek quarterback Dan Williams also finished with 488 yards and four touchdowns passing in the loss.

Field Hockey – Jessie Kent-Cutillo, Sr., Midfielder, Montclair

A four-year varsity starter for Montclair, the Mounties’ co-captain scored the lone goal in a 1-0 upset of Oak Knoll on Sept. 21 that ended Oak Knoll’s 27-game winning streak dating back to 2011.

Girls Volleyball – Jessica Ciandella, Sr., Setter, Roselle Catholic

Roselle Catholic knocked off two top-15 teams in New Jersey last week with wins over Watchung Hills and Livingston with Ciandella leading the way. In the win over Livingston, a top 10 team in the state, she had 23 assists to help Roselle Catholic win 25-17, 25-15. Her 138 assists and average of 23 assists per game this season rank fourth in the state.

Boys cross country – David Mugavero, Sr., North Hunterdon

Mugavero won the boys Senior Division race against a talented field at the 33rd annual NJCTC Bernie Magee Class Championships at Warinanco Park in Elizabeth on Sept. 21, running a time of 16:18, which was 36 seconds better than his time in last year’s race. He finished nine seconds ahead of a field that included a county champion and a two-time NJAC champion.
