1. Middletown South

The Eagles have dominated all year, and thus hold onto our number one spot entering the North Jersey Section 2 bracket.

2. Saint John Vianney

It was an interesting summer for the Lancers of SJV, but they now enter the playoffs as our #2 ranked team – led by dynamic signal caller Anthony Brown.

3. Toms River North

What a season the Mariners have had! Mike Husni and Asante Moorer have energized an offense that has dominated the Shore, landing TRN at #3 entering the South Jersey Group 5 bracket.

4. Red Bank Regional

Do not adjust your monitor (or phone screen), the RBR Bucs have put together a great regular season, highlighted by a mega-upset of RBC, and are well deserving of our #4 spot. They will play in the Central Jersey Group 3 bracket.


5. Brick

Brick has been consistent all season long despite presenting a lot of new faces to the lineup. They land right in the middle of our rankings entering the Central Jersey Group 4 playoffs.

6. Brick Memorial

One spot below rival Brick comes Brick Memorial, who will represent the Shore in the Central Jersey 4 bracket as well. Rematch anyone?

7. Rumson Fair Haven

RFH’s defense keeps them in every game, giving us reason to like their chances as our #7 team in the Central Jersey Group 3 playoffs.

8. Ocean Township

Ranked eighth, Ocean will be playing as the #2 seed in Central Jersey Group 3. A strong running game and defense that shutout Colts Neck will give them a chance to contend.

9. Shore Regional

Jack Britton, our latest Player of the Week, leads Shore Regional as the top seed in Central Jersey Group 3 – good for number nine in our countdown.

10. Red Bank Catholic

The Caseys have certainly been tested this season, and now will look to play their best stretch of football in the playoffs – trying to defend as champions.
