Boys Basketball – 2023 All-Shore Final Vote Winners
2022-23 Stats: 15.4 points, 72 3-pointers, 76.6 FT%. Schorr introduced himself to the Shore with an impressive scoring season for a sophomore that was rooted in smooth shooting stroke and ability to get himself space for clean looks. It was not all smooth sailing this season for the Bulldogs sharpshooter: after starting his career with a 25-point performance on opening night, he was bottled up in Rumson’s next two games – including a one-point outing against Colts Neck and its standout defender, Mike Belcher. Schorr, however, made adjustments. The first time through the division schedule, he averaged nine points per game; the second time through, he went for 18 per game with three 20-plus-point performances. Schorr closed the year with scoring games of 27 and 21 in the NJSIAA Tournament and will go into 2023-24 as one of the Shore's top juniors to watch.
