After a long list of memorable accomplishments over the past two months, starting on Sunday morning it is time for you to decide who was the very best of the best. We have selected six outstanding male and six outstanding female finalists for our annual BlueStreak-Overtime FCIAC Fall Player of the Year awards.
The winners will receive a trophy from BlueStreak Sports Training and the Stamford Advocate.
The final field was compiled after talking to and getting recommendations from a number of league coaches in each sport, as well as personal observations. Each category is limited to one athlete per school, which made for some extremely difficult choices.
Davell Cotterell, Westhill Football
Shaquan Howsie, Trinity Catholic Football
Andrew Melitsanopoulos, Norwalk Soccer
Jake Pelletier, St. Joseph Football
Henry Wynne, Staples Cross Country
Pieter Zenner, Greenwich Soccer
The six female finalists are:
Rachel Burston, Westhill Swimming
Madison Hendry, Wilton Field Hockey
Kat Huber, Darien Field Hockey
Emily Nelson, Fairfield Ludlowe Volleyball
Maddie Rusch, New Canaan Swimming
Sabrina Toole, St. Joseph Soccer
The voting will run from Sunday morning until next Wednesday at noon, so check back and be prepared to vote.
