STATEWIDE – Three of the state’s best football players are finalists for the top award in all of Maine.
Wells running back Nolan Potter, Scarborough back Owen Garrard and Falmouth High School quarterback Jack Bryant are the three remaining candidates for the Fitzpatrick Award, given to the state’s top senior football player. Three players initially represented the North region in the list of semifinalists, including Foxcroft’s Nick Clawson, Cony’s Jordan Roddy and MDI’s Colby Lee, though they did not make the final cut.
Bryant threw for 1,509 yards this season, while tossing 17 touchdowns. Potter meanwhile went on the ground for 1,550 yards and 28 touchdowns, while also recording more than 100 tackles on defense. Garrard also shined this year, adding 1,204 yards and 24 touchdowns for Scarborough.
None of the schools with finalists have ever won the Fitzpatrick Award.
