COACH OF THE YEAR: John Dubzinski Jr., North Andover

In his fourth year on the job, Dubzinski did what no Scarlet Knights coach had done in the preceding 17 seasons: Guide North Andover to a Super Bowl berth. After seesawing to a 10-12 record in his first two campaigns, Dubzinski’s program is 21-2 since 2016 and has won every which way—after outscoring opponents 424-124 this fall, the Scarlet Knights (12-0) captured the 2018 Division 2 Super Bowl title by a score of 6-0.


OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: QB Finn Murray, Acton-Boxborough (Acton)

On the strength of Murray’s arm and his prowess as a ball-carrier, the Colonials (9-2) scored 31.5 points per game and advanced to the Division 1 North sectional semifinals before falling to eventual state champ St. John’s Prep. The Dual County League Large division MVP amassed 2,861 total yards and 33 touchdowns (25 passing, 8 rushing), completing 61 percent of his 297 throws to average 11.2 yards per attempt.

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Mike Sainristil, Everett

The state’s Gatorade Player of the Year this fall embodied the Commonwealth’s most dynamic three-phase threat (receive-return-pass defense).
