Hamburg lineman Bill wins Trench Trophy
Hamburg senior Jeremiah Bill was selected as the Trench Trophy award-winner, as Western New York’s top lineman for the 2013 football season. He was one of 10 finalists being recognized by the Trench Trophy committee Dec. 11 at the Lancaster Elks Club in Lancaster.
The four-year varsity starter on the offensive line, as well as being a key lineman on the other side of the ball, grew his game and matured during that time, according to Hamburg head coach Pat Cauley, who said he was thrilled with Bill’s winning the award. Bill also grew in size. Now at 6-foot-5, 275-pounds, Bill led on both sides of the line of scrimmage. He was also named Second Team All-Western New York, this season.
The award winners are determined by a group of committee members, comprised of coaches and former players. Every week, volunteer scouts attend games of more than 80 schools to rate and grade players for nominations. Among all of the nominated players, 10 finalists from Section VI and Monsignor Martin were chosen and then one final winner was chosen for the award and a scholarship to go toward college.
