YAIAA Division III

Player of the Year

Trevor Hildebrand, Littlestown: Trevor Hildebrand waited his time. He received a few plays under center last year while playing behind two-year starter Dustin Crouse.

Hildebrand was finally given the keys to the Littlestown offense with confidence from Littlestown coach Mike Lippy this fall. In turn, he led the Thunderbolts to an undefeated regular season, which culminated into a postseason run to the District 3 Class AA title game.

When asked about Hildebrand this season, Lippy said the senior's composure was just one of the attributes he liked about him. The rest of Division III's coaches agreed enough to vote him their player of the year.

Hildebrand's composure was put to the test with the division title on the line in Week 9 at Bermudian Springs.

Littlestown trailed the Eagles 10-6 when the offense took the field with fewer than six minutes left in the matchup of then-unbeatens. Hildebrand not only drove the Thunderbolts the 63 yards needed to score but engineered three fourth-down conversions. Finally, he scored the winning touchdown as time expired.

No other stats really matter.

Littlestown won its first 12 games before running into Berks Catholic in the Class AA district title game at Hersheypark Stadium. Lippy was selected as co-coach of the year with Fairfield's Darwin Seiler, who guided Fairfield to a school-best 6-5 finish and playoff appearance.
