YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The awards keep rolling in for Hickory senior Michael Henwood, who on Thursday was named Big 22 Pennsylvania Player of the Year by CBS affiliate WKBN.
Henwood, who earlier this month was named D9and10Sports.com Jim Kelly District 10 Offensive Player of the Year, was one of four District 10 players named to the Big 22 Team, which honors the top players in Pennsylvania and Ohio in the Mahoning and Shenango Valleys.
Henwood put together a special senior season in helping lead the Hornets to the District 10 Class 3A title. He completed 136-of-222 passes (61.3 percent) for 2,118 yards, 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He also rushed for 942 yards and an additional 13 touchdowns, with an average of 11.0 ypc.
Also named to the Big 22 from District 10 were Wilmington’s Ethan Susen, Reynolds’ Cole Toy and Farrell’s Anthony Stallworth. In addition, Wilmington’s Weston Phanco and Farrell’s Gary Satterwhite III were named to WKBN’s 5 Blocks of Granite, rewarding the top lineman in the area.
Susen helped lead the Greyhounds to the PIAA Class 2A state title game, amassing 1,443 yards on 162 carries scoring 13 touchdowns on the ground.
He was also a major threat in the receiving game with 14 receptions for 326 yards and four touchdowns.
Stallworth rushed for 1,158 yards and 19 touchdowns, averaging 8.1 yards per carry and also had 172 yards and a pair of scores.
Toy, meanwhile, rushed for 1,320 yards and scored 24 touchdowns, averaging 7.1 ypc. He also finished second on the team in tackles, helping the Raiders to the PIAA Class 1A semifinals.
Phanco was perhaps the best player on a dominant Wilmington offensive line that was one of the best in the state. Phanco helped lead the Greyhounds to a staggering 345 rushing yards per game this season.
Satterwhite helped anchor a Steelers’ line that rushed for over 210 yards per game and averaged just over 31 points per contest.
