Players of the Year Announced
The 2019 Player of the year honors were announced at the end of the Section Five Championships. The winners were Jack Brennan from Irondequoit, Sutton Boland from Victor and Devin Campbell from Bloomfield-Honeoye.
Offensive Player of the Year
Jack Brennan - Irondequoit Senior
Irondequoit senior attackman, Jack Brennan was named the Offensive Player of the Year. Scoring over fifty goals and over thirty assists this year he averaged more than five points per game. He finished his career with the Eagles with 289 points. In both 2018 and 2018 he was a first team All-League player and D&C AGR first team pick.
Coach Terry Coholan says: "For a player as talented as Jack it would be easy for him to be arrogant, but he is humble and is respected by all of his teammates and our coaching staff. Jack is going to be successful in whatever he chooses."
The US Lacrosse All American will be moving on to the University of Maryland in the fall.
Defensive Player of the Year
Sutton Boland - Victor Senior
The senior defenseman, and long stick midfielder is a three-time All-Tournament Team member and a two-time first team All-League defenseman. He finished the regular season with fifty-two ground balls and sixteen takes and was recently selected as a US Lacrosse All-American.
Coach Jim Andre says: "Sutton Boland is the complete package. He is both an outstanding player and an outstanding person. He was selected by his peers as team captain. He is a role model both on and off the field."
Next fall, Sutton will honor the commitment that he made early in his career at Victor to play for the Penn State University.
Sportsman of the Year
Devin Campbell - Bloomfield-Honeoye Senior
Coach Brandon Trombley says: "Last year he was a three-year starter as a goalkeeper. He was the leader of our defense. Devin Campbell won first team all-league goalie in the Finger Lakes. However, as we needed offensive help in our league tournament, I switched Devin to offense in the middle of the game and he scored three goals in the 4th quarter to help us come back. Thinking I would hurt his chances of getting recruited as a goalie, I did not want to make this permanent. Devin texted me the next day and said, "Coach I just wanted to let you know that I can play middie or attack if that's what you feel is best for the team. I'm also willing to work with Owen if that's the way you decide to go." Owen was our freshman backup goalie."
"Devin went from a 1st team all-league goalie in 2018 to a 2nd team all-league midfielder in 2019. He is still the leader of our defense, but this year was different. He led our team in goals, points, ground balls, and was also the leader of our offense. It is clear to see that our two-time captain, Devin Campbell, is more than worthy of this award."
