Detroit, MI: State Champs! Sports Network and Warrior Sports have teamed up for the third year to offer the high school hockey player of the year competition. This year Trenton High School’s Caption and forward, Andrew Sawyer was honored with the 2014 Hockey Player of the Year Award.
Sawyer received over 18,000 votes alone but accomplished of a very special hat trick. Not only did Sawyer take home the hardware but was apart of the 14th division two state championship team at Trenton High School and was coached by the winningest coach in high school history.
“We’re a big family. We love each other,” said Sawyer. “We knew we wanted to send coach off and get him the record. There’s a lot of special things this season.”
Andrew was on the top 3 lines in the state of Michigan and led his team in assists. In his senior season, he had 66 points on the ice.
“I can’t credit this award enough to my line-mates. Our team came together,” said Sawyer. “We had something to prove every single day. It feels good to do what we set out every day to do.”
The competition started with 10 players from around Michigan and was narrowed down to Andrew Sawyer, Christopher Brown, Dominic Lutz and Tyler Irvine for the Final Four. Livonia Stevenson’s Dominic Lutz took home the trophy in 2013 and current Michigan State Spartan and St. Louis draft pick Mackenzie McEachern won the award in 2012.
“It’s a huge honor. There’s a lot of great players in the state,” Sawyer said.
