SAUGUS — Lynn Classical football coach Tim
Phelps handed out hardware to several of his players at
the school's football banquet at the Prince Restaurant.
The Rams were 7-3 this past fall, an improvement over a 4-6 season in 2011.
Unlike many other schools, Classical names its major awards after distinguished alumni, and two such former Rams -- Bob Melanson and Gerald LeBrasseur -- were on hand to present the plaques named in their honor.
Romario Louidhon received the LeBrasseur "Ironman" Award, which signifies, basically, a player who never leaves the field, playing on offense, defense and special teams.
Melanson's award is for the team's unsung hero, given this year to John McKinnon.
Other awards went to Devin Crayton (Boley Dancewicz All-American Award); Jeff Beck (Abel Marquez Leadership Award), Brad Scuzzarella (Harold Durgin Memorial Award), Steve Sam (George Moriarty Award for Commitment Dedication), Peter Dow (Bill Joyce Sportsmanship Award), Jose Luzon (Scout Team Award) and Astrel Fort (Lineman of the Year).
In addition, each class had its own scholar athlete: James Eldred for freshmen; Damien Earp for sophomores, Kenny Khun for juniors and Sam for seniors.
Freshman awards went to: James Kimber (offensive player), Danny Maria (defensive player) and Renzo Pappaterra (line).
JV awards went to Micah Dublin (offensive), Eli McConney (defensive) and Trey Burris (line).
