SuiteSports is proud to unveil its updated list of candidates for its 2017 MIAA Football Player of the Year Award. This list will be updated weekly through state championship Saturday on December 2nd.

The winner will be announced in accordance with SuiteSports’ All-State teams in the second week of December.

Here are the current candidates for the 2017 MIAA Football SuiteSports Player of the Year Award. Players can make their way onto this list as the final weeks of the playoffs unfold.

Danny Abraham, Sr., RB, Boston College High

With four touchdowns over the last two weeks, Abraham has upped his season total to 18.

The toughest tests are yet to come for the Eagles’ prolific running back, however, as he will be the focal point of the Catholic Memorial defense on Friday night in the Division 1 South semifinals.

Jake Willcox, Jr., Quarterback, Everett

Willcox had one of the more incredible stat lines for a quarterback you will see in the Tide’s playoff opener against St. John’s Prep. In No. 3 Everett’s 49-14 win over the Eagles, Willcox threw just six passes, but totaled 226 yards and three touchdowns.

The only pass that Willcox completed that was not a touchdown was a 53-yard reception by Anthony Norcia.

On the season, Willcox now has 18 touchdowns through the air.

Sal Frelick, Sr., Quarterback, Lexington HS

Everett’s opponent this week will be the always dangerous Sal Frelick and No. 2 Lexington.

Each week Frelick seems to surprise, putting up video-game like numbers in dominant Minuteman victories. Last Friday was no different when he threw for 242 yards and four touchdowns while also rushing for 136 yards in a 52-33 win over No. 7 Andover.

Shane Frommer, Sr., RB/OLB, King Philip

King Philip was stuck in a battle with eight-seed Barnstable for most of the evening but, due in large part to Frommer, the Warriors maintained control throughout the contest.

Frommer rushed for 195 yards and two touchdowns to increase his season total to 11.

Chad Peterson, Sr., Quarterback, North Attleboro

Peterson helped the Red Rocketeers avoid an opening round scare versus No. 8 Walpole.

The Amherst commit threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more to lead North Attleboro to a 28-14 win and a birth in the Division 3 South Sectional Semifinals.

Those four touchdowns increase Peterson’s season total to 18.

Devaun Ford, Sr., Running Back, Mashpee

Ford showed no signs of slowing down in Mashpee’s first round playoff game against Diman RVT.

Wreaking havoc on the ground once again, Ford ran for a pair of scores and now has 10 touchdowns in just five games played.

Steve Bucciaglia, Sr., Quarterback, St. John’s (Shrewsbury)

One team still playing for postseason positioning was Division 3 favorite St. John’s (Shrewsbury) and, while it was not the Pioneer’s smoothest victory of the season, Bucciaglia helped the SJS grind out a win over a stingy Marlboro squad.

The senior finished with 235 yards and three touchdowns. Combine that with his performance one-week prior and Bucciaglia enters the postseason with a mind-blowing 32 touchdowns and 2,365 passing yards to his name.
