A Summer Weekend In October
Bouncing around a bit on the first Friday of October which is more likely to feel like the first Friday of August:
If you want to meet a Super Bowl champion then 21 South in Jackson is the place to be on Sunday. Lee Woodall played six of his eight NFL seasons with the San Francisco 49ers and in that time won a pair of Super Bowl rings and was selected to the Pro Bowl in both 1995 and 1997. A trainer who now works with elite athletes Woodall will be at 21 South on Hope Chapel Road from 1-5pm and will be signing autographs and talking football.
The fourth weekend of the high school football season includes a Friday Night meeting at venerable Detweiler Stadium, one that could feature fireworks on the field as undefeated Lacey visits Toms River South. The Lions have averaged 46 points a game while winning their first three games and feature what might be the shore’s best passing combination in quarterback Tom Kelly and wide receiver Christian Tutela.
The Indians are coming off a loss to Brick but Tymere Berry leads an offense that averages 30 points a game and South will have a sense of urgency as another loss would virtually knock them out of the Class A South title picture. This one is the Shore Sports Network’s Sonny’s Recycling Game of the Week on 105.7FM.
By the way a little shout-out this morning for the Toms River South Girls Soccer team which improved to 9-0 with a 2-1 win at Jackson Memorial Thursday as Taylor Troutman scoring both Indian goals. Coach John Crowley’s tribe will next visit Toms River North Monday night for a rematch with the defending Class A South champion Mariners. South beat North last month in double overtime when Troutman scored the game winner with six seconds remaining.
Last fall Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ocean County broke the Guinness Book of World Records for the most sandcastles built in one hour. Next up for the child-mentoring program is a Sand Pumpkin Carving Contest featuring Ed Jarrett who of course is working on his second edition of the Sandy Castle at Jenkinson’s Boardwalk in Point Pleasant Beach. That’s where he Big Brothers Big Sisters fundraiser will take place on Saturday, October 19th and for information or to register call BBBSOC at (732) 505-3400.
