Congratulations To This Week’s High School Athlete of the Week

NJ high school sports have returned! 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!

Congratulations to our first winner: Connor McGlynn, Sr., QB, Howell!

In his season debut, McGlynn erupted for a career-high 367 yards passing and threw five touchdown passes in a 39-18 win over Toms River North. He went 25-for-34 passing and also ran for 23 yards and a score to give him six total touchdowns to help the Rebels start the season with a victory after finishing 1-9 last season.

On Monday we’ll post more student athletes for you to vote for. Each week, we have a new group of NJ student-athletes who have shined for their respective teams.

You will be able to cast your vote for your favorite athlete. 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 other student-athletes:

Football – Aqeel Daniels, Sr., RB, Edison

Daniels accounted for four touchdowns in a stunning 34-22 upset of perennial power Piscataway to mark Edison’s first win over the Chiefs since 1994. He had touchdown runs of 3 and 7 yards, caught a 6-yard touchdown pass and also threw a 52-yard touchdown pass to Nick Wales on a halfback option play.

Field hockey – Morgan Lojek, Sr., F, Hunterdon Central

Battling plantar fasciitis and shin splints, Lojek came up with the game-winning overtime goal to help Hunterdon Central upset one of the state’s top teams, Bridgewater-Raritan, with a 2-1 victory on Sept. 10.  Lojek scored off a penalty corner to give the Red Devils their second straight win after a season-opening loss to Ridge, and helped Hunterdon Central pull out the victory despite being outshot 20-5 by Bridgewater-Raritan.

Cross country – Eryn Mills, Jr., Red Bank Catholic

Mills won the individual title at the St. Dominic Invitational in Jersey City on Saturday to help lead Red Bank Catholic to the team championship as well. Mills finished 15 seconds ahead of the second-place finisher, covering the 3.3-mile course in 19:45 as the Caseys set a course record with an average time of 20:09 for their seven runners.

Boys soccer – Anderson Asiedu, Jr., Midfielder, St. Benedict’s Prep

Asiedu snapped a scoreless tie against Summit with his first of two goals to trigger a 5-0 victory on Sept. 7 that gave St. Benedict’s Prep the state record with its 57th straight win. The Gray Bees beat their own mark of 56 set between 1997-99. Asiedu also had a goal in a 4-0 victory over Chaminade (N.Y.) High School on Sept. 15 for St. Benedict’s 58th straight victory.
