2013 Week 9 Player of the Week: Boonton’s Runningback Josh Smith

A few weeks ago, after losing to Mountain Lakes, it became apparent to Boonton that they would not make it into the playoffs. Although a young team, this fiesty group had every right to hang their heads low. Instead, they did the opposite. They went on to battle for wins against Whippany Park and Kinnelon in games that were all but meaningless. But Boonton is playing for something more…PRIDE.

In this past week’s victory against Kinnelon, the Bombers shelled out 35 points and kept the Colts to just 19 in an impressive road victory. During this game, Butler’s junior runningback Josh Smith jetted for 161 yards and 4 touchdowns in what turned out to be this young man’s best output of points in his whole career. This performance, backed by his teammates passion, earned Smith Morris Sussex Football’s Week 9 Player of the Week.

Morris Sussex Football caught up with Smith to talk about his team’s gumshen, this past season and what we can expect from the 2014 Bombers.
