It is now time to announce the winners of the 2015 Batavia’s Best Football Awards:
Batavia QB Greg Mruczek
Greg was undoubtedly the most impressive high school football player in the area this season. With 1,832 passing yards to go with an elite 31/4 TD-Interception ratio, Greg proved each week why he was the player who deserved our MVP.
(Runner up: Jack Sutherland – Notre Dame RB)
Offensive Player of the Year
Batavia QB Greg Mruczek
In putting together such a fine season for a Sectional Championship team, Greg is the sure-fire choice for this award.
(Runner up: Alex Piechocki – Attica RB)
Defensive Player of the Year
Batavia LB Dom Mogavero
Dom has propelled a Batavia defensive attack which has allowed just 125 points through 10 games this season. In total during 2015, Dom has totaled over 100 tackles, 10+ of which have gone for a loss, while also picking up an interception and 3 sacks.
(Runner up: Andrew Gottler – Elba/Byron-Bergen LB)
Special Teams Player of the Year
Cal-Mum K Josh Roides
Josh was fantastic for the Red Raiders this season, and was surely the top kicker in the area this season. Perhaps his finest moment this season was when he made two field goals in Cal-Mum’s 12-0 win over York/Pavilion.
(Runner up: Ray Leach – Batavia KR)
Lineman of the Year
Austin Bremiller – Attica
Austin received the highest number of recommendations from a pool of area football coaches whom I asked to assist me in deciding the linemen awards this season. It is tough for me to truly determine which individual linemen on which teams are performing the best, as I do not have the benefit of game tape following each contest. Therefore, I rely on the coaches’ opinions for this one.
(Runner up: Riley Kusmierski – Alexander OL)
Coach of the Year
Mike Cintorino – Elba/Byron-Bergen
Elba/Byron-Bergen was a team in transition this season having replaced their top three threats out of the backfield from a season ago, along with many other key players. Therefore, I did not have very high expectations for this group entering the year. However, despite my utter idiocy, Cintorino led his group to a fine season within the GR League, along with a Sectional berth.
(Runner up: John Walther – Cal-Mum HC)
Underclassman of the Year
Ray Leach – Batavia
Leach has contributed greatly to this Batavia attack through his play out of the backfield, on special teams, as well as on defense. Only a freshman, I’m sure we will see Ray up for the MVP, as well as all other top awards in years to come.
(Runner up: Zach von Kramer – Pembroke)
