WEST HAVEN, CT– &ldquot;We've had some great performances this season down here&rdquot; said CT Panthers Derek Bortz, &ldquot;the MVP competition is just as competitive as the division is on the field.&rdquot; As the voting of post seasons awards start to be counted, we look to review a few impact players on both sides of the ball in the West and South Division respectfully.


QB Dino Mancinelli (Bridgeport Gators): Mancinelli finishes the regular season with an unbelievable 19 touchdown passes with only 2 interceptions. &ldquot;Dino gets the ball out quickly and throws a great deep ball&rdquot; said coordinator Dom Colavito. Slowed in the later part of the season, a three touchdown performance in the final game against the playoff bound Bulldogs makes this offense very dangerous in the post season.

QB Kevin Oberg (Western CT Militia): Accounting for 20 touchdowns this season (16 passing, 4 rushing), Oberg put his top rated team on his back all season. With their running game slowed with defenses stacking the run lanes, Oberg averaged over 260 yards through the first 7 games of the year. Oberg threw for a season high 307 yards in week one against the Gators. Oberg is the only player in the two divisions to account for a touchdown in each of his ten regular season games.

WR Jamie Bryant (CT Panthers): The do-everything Bryant accounted for 11 touchdowns this season. The impressive part is that he collected his scores in four different categories (4 receiving, 3 passing, 2 rushing, 2 kick returns). &ldquot;He's can score any time he touches the ball&rdquot; said Western Mass Warriors coach Junior Williams, &ldquot;he gets better every year believe it or not.&rdquot; In relief of injured Rich Snowden, Bryant stepped in at quarterback to lead the Panthers to a victory over the then undefeated Bridgeport Gators on the road.


LB Dante Williams (Bridgeport Gators): Known mostly as an offensive team, Williams and the Gators are one of the top ranked defensive teams in the NEFL. &ldquot;We have a lot of talent on defense&rdquot; said Williams, &ldquot;our defensive line, secondary and linebacker group works well together and makes stops when we need them.&rdquot; Williams averaged 7 tackles per game while collecting 5 turnovers.

LB James Phillips (New Jersey Spartans): The currently winless Spartans key bright spot was that of Phillips. &ldquot;James is all over the field to say the least&rdquot; said coach Kevin Moss, &ldquot;we just need to continue to build around him and he'll take care of the rest. Averaging a division leading 9.5 tackles per game, Phillips collected a season high 15 tackles against the Militia in week 10.

Any player from the CT Panthers: This team has shaken the division up with the accusation of defensive standouts David Reese, Gerald Patrick, and Sir Snowden. With mainstays Tylee Flowers and Dustin Lindon, the team is loaded at every position. &ldquot;These guys defend the run and the pass with the same veracity&rdquot; said a competing coach, &ldquot;the fact that most of these guys make up the special teams units for the Panthers, they make every snap in the game a battle.&rdquot; The team has scored 9 defensive touchdowns this year while allowing less than 10 points per contest.
