PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Austin Reynolds, Littlestown: The Thunderbolts senior quarterback put up absurd numbers in his first-and-only season as the starter. Reynolds' 2,069 passing yards were tops in the YAIAA, as were his 23 touchdown passes. A dynamic athlete, Reynolds also ran for 569 yards and three touchdowns.
Reynolds was also a solid contributor at safety. He finished the season with 55 tackles and four pass deflections.
Sean Doherty, Littlestown, RB: The bruising senior turned in a stellar season, highlighted by his YAIAA-best 26 rushing touchdowns. Doherty also piled up with 978 rushing yards.
Tyler Fitzkee, Bermudian Springs, RB: The junior put on a late-season surge to finish as the YAIAA's leading rusher with 1,424 yards. In a Week 10 bashing of Biglerville, Fitzkee put up an incredible 328 yards rushing and five touchdowns.
Kodi Reed, Delone Catholic, RB: The senior took advantage of his touches. Reed averaged 8.9 yards per carry, and finished the season with 1,228 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Austin Keller, Bermudian Springs, FB: The second-half of Bermudian's ground-it-out duo. The senior finished third in the YAIAA with 1,308 yards, and ran for at least 100 yards in seven of his team's 12 games.
Karem Bentajar, Littlestown, WR: The senior was a constant big-play threat. Bentajar averaged 26.7 yards per catch, finishing the season with 427 receiving yards and five scores.
Gary Laucks, York Catholic, WR: Yet another member of the Irish's stacked senior class, Laucks didn't disappoint. Twelve of his 33 catches went for touchdowns, and racked up 657 receiving yards.
Seth Wren, Littlestown, WR: The senior led all Division III receivers in yards (910) and receptions (50). Wren averaged 18.2 yards per catch, and also hauled in six touchdown grabs.
Matt Haines, Fairfield, TE: The senior transferred from Delone in the offseason, and provided leadership and production to a rebuilding Green Knights squad. Haines finished with 26 catches for 361 yards and four scores.
Shane Anderson, Biglerville, OT: The offensive line played a big role for the run heavy Canners (2,229 rushing yards), and no player was more vital than the senior Anderson.
Dan Crowe, Littlestown, OT: The 220-pound junior, along with Crouse, should give the Bolts a nice foundation along the offensive line for next season.
Nate Elsen, York Catholic, OT: The senior was yet another member of a big and experienced line that helped York Catholic average 210.1 rushing yards per game.
Adam Conner, York Catholic, OG: The monstrous senior (6-3, 270 pounds) was one of the Irish most fearsome and effective players. On offense, he led a line that helped carve out 316.1 yards and 33.2 points per game.
Mitch Crouse, Littlestown, OG: The Bolts' high-flying skill players got much of the attention, but it was the big boys up front, like the 240-pound junior Crouse, who helped to pave the way for them.
Matt Wolf, Bermudian Springs, OG: Wolf was a lynchpin at both guard and linebacker, and helped open holes for the YAIAA's most prolific running attack (3,264 rushing yards in 12 games).
David Baker, Bermudian Springs, C: A 6-foot-1, 182-pound senior, Baker helped set the tone up front for the Eagles' grinding, Wing-T attack.
Cameron Marquette, York Catholic, C: The Irish had one of the better front-fives in the division, starting with Marquette, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound senior.
Erik Moore, Eastern York, K A senior with a powerful leg, Moore nailed seven field goals and added 25 extra points for the Golden Knights.
Ian Bosserman, Hanover, DE: A standout as a junior, Bosserman was a versatile player along the Nighthawks line. He even had a key, first-quarter interception in Hanover's Week 9 win against Fairfield.
Aidan Carroll, Delone Catholic, DE: The senior wasn't the most imposing lineman in the division (5-10, 175) but he was one of the best. Carroll led the Squires in sacks with 5.5, and pitched in 76 tackles.
Luke Frymyer, Littlestown, DE: A team captain, the 6-foot-2 senior finished with 53 tackles, including 25 solo stops.
Noe Aguilar, Biglerville, DT: The junior was an ideal anchor for the Canners. Aguilar was one of the more consistent members of a unit that allowed an average of 9.6 points in the Canners' five victories.
Adam Conner, York Catholic, DT: Conner led the Irish in tackles (61) and also tallied three sacks and a fumble recovery.
Isaac Dori, Littlestown, DT: It was hard to miss the Bolts' junior. At 6-7, 375 pounds, Dori plugged up the middle of the line and piled up 66 tackles in eight games.
Payton Caler, Hanover, OLB: The two-way senior led the Nighthawks in rushing yards (664) and was also a vital member of defense that allowed an average of 15.5 points during the final six games (four wins).
Sean Doherty, Littlestown, OLB: An all-around force on both sides of the ball, Doherty amassed a team-high 118 tackles (62 solo) and four sacks.
Gary Laucks, York Catholic, OLB: Known for his work at receiver, the 6-3 senior still piled up 40 tackles, an interception and a sack.
Nate Bell, Delone Catholic, ILB: A tackling machine, the senior led Delone with 114 stops (69 solo). He collected 19 of those in a Oct. 29 win against Eastern York.
Tyler Fitzkee, Bermudian Springs, ILB: The league's leading rusher was pretty good on defense, too. Fitzkee led the Eagles in both tackles (123) and sacks (6.5).
Nick Full, York Catholic, ILB: The promising senior's season was marred first a separated shoulder, and then by a torn ACL. Full still had 43 tackles, including 14 stops and an interception against Delone Catholic.
Tyler Trone, Littlestown, ILB: A key cog at linebacker, the senior ended up with 68 tackles and two sacks. He had 11 stops in a Week 9 victory against Bermudian Springs.
Matt Wolf, Bermudian Springs, ILB: The senior chipped in 84 tackles, including 16 in a standout performance against Eastern York on Sept. 17.
Kyle Bobo, Biglerville, DB: The senior was a two-way standout for the Canners, rushing for 860 yards and 12 touchdowns while also leading Biglerville's secondary.
Steve Shaffer, Hanover, DB: Shaffer was one of the catalysts behind the Nighthawks' 2010 turnaround, playing both quarterback and in the defensive backfield.
Tyler Smith, Delone Catholic, DB: The two-way junior had 10 touchdowns, but also stood out on the defensive side. Smith had 45 tackles this season for the Squires, along with a pair of interceptions.
Tyler Redding, Biglerville, P: In his final game, a loss to Bermudian, Redding averaged 40.8 yards on five kicks.
COACH OF THE YEAR
Jon DeFoe, Bermudian Springs: The 12th-year coach inherited a young roster and helped turn it into a winner, guiding the Eagles to a 7-3 regular season. But Bermudian's biggest moment came in the first round of the District 3 Class AA playoffs, when the Eagles stunned second-seeded Littlestown, 37-0.
