    Tim Rotanz, even though his team had a surprising loss, I still think deserves it.

    I say Nick Mariano

    Brian Prestreau – Yorktown

    Hands down, most dominate offensive player in the entire Tristate.

    I have watched a lot of lacrosse since the early 90’s and can only remember 2 or 3 midfielders that dominated from up top like Prestreau did.

    Tim Rotanz

    Brian Prestreau – literally could not be stopped at times. Whenever your pass records at Yorktown, you have to be recognized … Has my #1 vote.
