12U Division Defensive Player of the Year
Mill Creek Hawks
Amazing the impact of one player and how much he means to a team. The GFL Championship was the stage that was set for Sterling to show his dominance. With his team up and looking like they were going to walk away with another GFL Championship Sterling goes down to injury and Lawrenceville being the great team that they are comes storming back. Once Sterling comes back in the game he is able to lead his team to finish up the drill as they put away Lawrenceville with their defense and Sterling was right in the middle of the action on every play. A smart player that is a phenomenal tackler and understand plays well enough that je consistently puts himself in position to make big plays to help his team. Congrats to Sterling Fleury for being named the B2C 12U Division Defensive Player of the Year.
12U Division Offensive Co-Player of the Year
Kimani Vidal and Dawson Ellington
Its hard to separate these two as they are joined at the hip because of their production. Think of them like Cadilac Williams and Ronnie Brown with Auburn at one time or even Reggie Bush and Lendale White with USC. Dawson was the guy you could put in space because of his world class speed. Jet sweeps, screens, returning kicks. Dawson was ready to do it all and be not only a contributor but his big play ability could literally break a game wide open. Kimani is a work hoarse. You can give the ball to him 20 times a game and he just gets stronger and stronger. Specializes in running between the tackles, as he would hit the hole hard, make one cut and look to pick up positive yards for his team. Both players were great this year for the team that went undefeated and ranked #1 from the beginning of the season till the end of the season. Only one team has ever done that at the 12U age group and that was Ben Hill in 2009. Congrats to Kimani Vidal and Dawson Ellington for being named the B2C 12U Division Co-Offensive Players of the Year.
12U Division B2C Player of the Year
WOW is what you come away with after seeing him play. Standing over 6ft and with speed and leaping ability out this world for his age group Nicolas put on a show every week. If you kicked to him he was looking to take it to the house. On offense he looked like a young Randy Moss as he consistently would go up and get the ball. on defense he played safety which allowed the defense to play aggressive because if a team passed it across the middle he would literately pick the ball every time. Helped lead his team to the GXYFL Championship and birth into the Frank Ski Youth Bowl. Congrats to Nicolas Manson for bing named the 12U Division B2C Player of the Year.
