Athlete of the Week: Adam Mansur

Parsippany linebacker shines on defense.

It’s been a rough start to the season for the Parsippany High football team, with losses to Kittatinny and Wallkill Valley both highlighted by the Red Hawks’ inability to find the end zone.

While the Parsippany offense continued to struggle in Friday’s , there was one shining light, which came in the form of linebacker Adam Mansur.

Mansur stepped up in a big way on Friday night, recording 10 tackles (two for loss), two sacks and forcing two fumbles. And despite his teams’ struggles, head coach Mike Adams acknowledged Mansur’s terrific play on the field.

“He had a strong defensive performance and is always moving and finding the ball on the field,” Adams said. “He leads the linebacking group and is a key component to our defensive scheme.”

Parsippany is a “work in progress,” according to Adams, but it’s becoming clear that when progress is eventually made, Mansur will surely be a reason why.

“He always looks to improve week by week,” Adams added.

Up next, Parsippany will look for its first win of the season as the Red Hawks welcome Madison High School (1-0) on Friday.
