(WBNG Binghamton) Defense may win championships, but you also need to score some points to win high school football games.
And our last 5 award winners helped their teams do just that.
We hand out our last 5 silver footballs to the Offensive MVPs of each class.

The Maine-Endwell Spartans captured their second straight state title.

And one of the biggest contributors on both sides of the ball was senior Nick Sorrenti.

Though he was the fullback in a 4 or 5 running back system, Sorrenti rushed for 923 yards and 11 touchdowns, and added two more touchdowns through the air.

The 6 foot 1, 240 pound back could run people over, but was also quick enough to dance around tacklers when needed.

He was named the offensive MVP in 2 of the Spartans 3 playoff games this season.

The Tioga Tigers started a young offensive line, but that didn't stop senior Tyler Spires from running wild this season.

The 5 foot 10, 205 pound senior ran for 17 hundred and 88 yards and scored a team high 22 touchdowns.

Spires often turned a small gain into a big run and had enough speed to leave defenders in the dust.

Class "C" coaches are already having nightmares on how they will slow down Chenango Forks running back Isaiah Zimmer.

The junior rushed for 14 hundred and 66 yards and scored 24 touchdowns.

In the Class "C" sectional final, Zimmer rushed for 4 touchdowns and sealed the game with a 2 point conversion in overtime.

It was the second time this season that Zimmer scored a 2 pointer in OT, also breaking the hearts of arch rival Chenango Valley during the season.

Early in the season, he wasn't his teams first option.

But once he got going, it was difficult to stop Union-Endicott senior Michael Cheslock.

Cheslock rushed for nearly 900 yards, leading the team, and scored 8 touchdowns for the Tigers, who made it all the way to the state semi-finals.

He's the only quarterback to win the offensive MVP award, but he did plenty of damage with his feet.

Binghamton Patriots senior quarterback Andre Yevchinez totaled more than 24 hundreds yards this season, with more than 800 of that coming on the ground.

He averaged 9 yards per carry and found the endzone 9 times.

Most of the damage Yevchinez did came through the air, where he threw for 16 hundred 14 yards, most in Section 4 and tossed 16 touchdowns while guiding the Patriots to their second straight trip to the state playoffs.
