COACH OF THE YEAR: Mike Ford, Susquehanna Valley (Conklin)

In his sixth year at the helm, Ford led the Sabers to a 13-0 record and the first state championship in program history. Ford’s team outscored foes 614-106 and knocked off Dobbs Ferry in the Class C state final, 27-6.



Leach’s season started in near tragedy—he was stabbed multiple times in an August incident—but he recovered and went on the greatest post-season run in state history. Though the Blue Devils fell in the Class B state final, the senior running back topped 400 yards in each of the final three playoff games, including back-to-back eight touchdown efforts and a state playoff record 474-yard performance.
