Shorter Gets a ring and Talks The new Offense
Penn State commit Justin Shorter brought home the Central Jersey Group Five title with an 18-14 win over Manapalan. Shorter hauled in seven catches for 86 yards and one touchdown, capping off his senior season with a total of 43 catches for 608 yards and eight touchdowns.
After the game, Shorter told 247Sports he's excited to see what Ricky Rahne does in his new role as offensive coordinator. Judging by what Shorter said, it appears the offense will be quite similar to the system Joe Moorhead ran.
Fleming will be a force
While we're on the topic of talented receivers, Julian Fleming did a thing. The 2020 prospect made nearly an entire defense look like fools with this insane catch and run over the weekend.
Are you kidding me, Julian Fleming? Not sure which is better, the catch, the spin move, or the run after the catch ... Just ridiculous ... pic.twitter.com/fScsXO0mUe
