(WBNG Binghamton) He's shooting for his third straight state title, and it makes Kyle Gallagher an easy choice for offensive most valuable player. He might have single handedly helped push M-E into the state semis, as he threw for two touchdowns while also running for 216 yards in a quarterfinal thriller.
Gallagher looks to add another state title to his resume on Sunday.
In Class A, Joey Orlando threw for more than 20 touchdowns and over 2,400 yards. He helped quarterback the Tigers back to the state semifinals for the second year in a row, spreading the wealth to U-E's many offensive weapons.
One of the most feared backs in the entire Section, Chenango Forks back Isaiah Zimmer has powered his way to more than 1,800 yards and nearly 30 touchdowns.
Coach Dave Hogan says it's his vision that makes him so special, and that's just another reason why he's our Class C player of the year.
On the flip side, if Zimmer was thunder, Tioga's Jesse Manuel would be lightening. Manuel helped get Tioga back to the state semifinals for the third straight season, rushing for a school record with over 2,000 yards on the season.
The most impressive part about all of that, Manuel is only a sophomore and has a bright future ahead of him with the Tigers.
Last, but certainly not least, one of the keys to the offensive explosion for Elmira. The Express's Jerry McPeak ran for more than 1,500 yards as they made it all the way to the state semis. The successful season ends with some recognition for McPeak.
