Six high school football teams claimed state championships last month and now it’s time to determine who is the best senior player in Maine this year.
The 50th annual Fitzpatrick Trophy will be awarded on January 16th and this week a list of 12 semi-finalists was revealed. The list of 12 will get narrowed down to three finalists with the Fitzy winner being honored on January 16th.
The list includes players from all four 11-man football classes and two players from the 8-man classes. Seven of the 12 players are quarterbacks.
