(WBNG Binghamton) Chenango Forks is known as a ground and pound football team, and none of that would be possible without the line assistant coach Dave Chickanosky helps put together.

One of the integral parts this season has been Mike Zurenda. Zurenda shined on both sides of the ball, including being named the Defensive player of the game in last week's state semifinal win.

In Class B, there's times it looks like anyone could run through the holes the Maine-Endwell line creates, part of the reason is senior tackle Seren Cody. Cody helped open holes for Spartan running backs, and that has opened up the opportunity to be named our Class B Lineman of the year.

Corning's Jordan Prisella earns our Class A lineman of the year honors. Prisella, the center of the line, helped protect and open holes for quarterback Adarius France for the Hawks.

Lineman don't get much credit, but many times they deserve most of it. In Class Double-A, the entire Elmira offensive line helped open big holes for running backs in their double-handoff system.

In Class D, there are few guys bigger than Sidney junior lineman Austin Dean. At 6-6 260 pounds he was a nightmare for opposing teams, helping clear the way for our Class D running back of the year Bill Kozak.
