The 2010 Walter Camp All-Connecticut team was unveiled today at the Walter Camp Football Foundation’s Breakfast of Champions — which honors the four state championship teams from the state — at Anthony’s Ocean View in New Haven.
Masuk coach John Murphy was honored as the Foundation’s Coach of the Year after a 13-0, Class L championship season. Hillhouse’s Tom Dyer and Xavier’s Sean Marinan were finalists.
The state Player of the Year is Masuk junior QB Casey Cochran, who threw for 3,345 yards
and 40 touchdowns for the Class L champions. (Ansonia’s Montrell Dobbs and New Canaan’s Kevin Macari were finalists.)
The lifetime achievement award went to former Hand coach Larry Ciotti, who compiled a 141-42-2 record and won five state championships over 19 seasons.
