Athlete of the Week

Maurice Sherrod

Each week, the Current will select an athlete of the week based on competition involving high schools, youth or adult sports and recreation.

Sherrod ended his high school football career with an offensive explosion, rushing for 280 yards and four touchdowns on 21 carries in a regional crossover win over Cherry Hill West, then rushing for 190 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Eagles to a 41-0 win over Mainland Regional on Thanksgiving Day. EHT won its last two games of the year at home to finish at 2-8 on the season.

We welcome suggestions for this honor. Just send the name of your "nominee" along with pertinent information and a picture, if possible, to sports@shorenewstoday.com by Monday of the week of publication.
