COACH OF THE YEAR: Jamie Tucker, Nashoba Regional (Bolton)

Tucker led Nashoba to a perfect 14-0 season and the school’s first-ever state championship this fall. Long a Central Massachusetts power, this was Nashoba’s first title under the revamped playoff system that has been crowning true state champions since 2013.


OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Coby Tippett, Xaverian (Westwood)

Tippett was the key man in Xaverian’s run to a second consecutive Division 1 state title and a spot in the Super 25. The son of Patriots Hall of Fame linebacker Andre Tippett, Coby logged 1,150 receiving yards and 16 scores this fall for the Hawks.
