Hanover Park senior linebacker Anthony Olivieri, Roxbury senior quarterback Grant Dixon and Chatham coach Jason Izsa were among the big award winners at Thursday’s Morris County Football Coaches Association luncheon at the Knights of Columbus in Boonton.
Olivieri, who helped lead the Hornets to an NJSIAA North 2 Group II semifinal and a share of the NJAC-Freedom championship, earned the Pete Piccirillo Defensive Player of the Year award, which is named after the longtime West Morris coach.
Dixon, who helped lead the Gaels to an 8-3 record and a tie atop the NJAC-National, was named the John Chirrona Offensive Player of the Year, in recognition of the longtime Morristown coach.
Chatham coach Jason Izsa, who guided the Cougars to the NJSIAA North 2 Group III final, was named the William O. Regan Coach of the Year, an award named after the legendary Delbarton coach.
