Succar (#6) was named the overall MVP in a 13-0 win for Team West. The young running back said, “I can’t put it into words with how surprised I was with our team. We did really well, especially finishing it up.”

“I got to give it to our defense, who really brought us into the game. I’ve just been dedicated all my life now to being a good football player. The one long run I had for the TD [was the highlight.] I was zoned out for like half the time,” he added.

Chivase Bryan, the head coach of Team Central, said that the overall MVP selection was a great choice. “That kid, Jacob Succar, runs hard, play’s hard, is physical.”

Nicholas Lazar, the head coach of Team West, said that Succar “had one hell of a game.”

The young quarterback, Brown (#4), was named the game’s offensive performer of the game. “It was a good game and I wasn’t really expecting it,” he said as he tried to catch his breath. “[The highlight] I think was when I made that play were I reversed field and threw a touchdown pass.”

Lazar was proud of his star quarterback, whose ridiculous touchdown pass secured the win for his team. “Brown played really well. He had all the running backs playing well for us. Great job,” he said.

While it wasn’t the result Team Central wanted, the defensive MVP, Edwards (#8), still had a smile on his face. “It was really good. We got to come out here and have fun. It was a great game played by both teams and I hope we can do better next time,” he said.

“[The highlight] was that last play of the half when I got that pick. That was really fun and I’m glad I got to have fun today,” he added.

“That kid, Daniel Brown, played hard, runs hard all game and is physical. It was also a good choice. Same with the defense [selection, Kallan Edwards],” Bryan said.

Lazar had similar sentiments, summing up the game with, “They all played very well. It was hard to tell who should get the award.”

He added that, “All these guys deserve to win awards but not all of them can unfortunately.”
