Jada Byers of St. Joseph has scored 110 points this season – in four games!
He has scored 15 times running from the line of scrimmage, twice returning an interception and four two-point conversions. He is on pace to score 303 points this season which would be a new South Jersey record. The current record is 272 points in 2008 by Shawnee’s Chris LaPierre, who went on to become a two-time All-American in lacrosse at Virginia. The record for a player at a Cape-Atlantic League school is 226 by Holy Spirit’s William Washington in 2007.
Byers has scored 312 career points, the most ever by a CAL player less than halfway through his junior year.
Ryan Yost of Holy Spirit, who threw four TD passes in a win over Hammonton last Friday, took over the CAL lead with seven, one more than Ocean City’s Ian Aungst.
The Spartans’ Ahmad Brown caught two of those touchdowns to move into a tie with Ocean City’s Brandon Lashley for most receiving touchdowns.
Sean Carey of Mainland leads CAL kickers with 20 points and has kicked three field goals.
St. Joseph (43.0) is currently the highest scoring team and Buena (5.0) gives up the fewest points.
