Trombley was better as a junior

Maybe so.

I would have to say this is some of Coach Bodner's finest work

He was very good. Impressive player. Could be a very good D-3 kid if he wants to continue playing. Congrats

Considering he statistically improved every aspect of his game, I would say you are wrong in your assessment. However, he was great his junior season.

From a casual observer
I got a chance to meet Dominic this year cant say that I ever got a chance to see him play, but as far as representing The Red Devils and his ability to articulate himself as a young adult, This kid seems top notch as far as his character goes Congrats Dominic and Good luck in the future

One of the best defensive player I saw all season definitely the best d lineman ... He was also pretty good on the offensive side of things. Very deserving, very good football player

Not a bad choice. I thought it would have been #47 from SMCC. He was pretty good too. Congrats to Mr. Trombley, well deserved.

I have an idea Chris!! Don't be predictable. Enough with the same ole same ole. Offensive stats are only as good as the men in the trenches. Why not name MVP a linemen? Take Trombley for instance, he dominated both sides of the ball. Teams avoided him like the plague and on offense is motor was outstanding accounting for yards downfield. Look at the film. Trombley knew what every player on the field was doing., he knew the game better than anyone!!! Most dominate player of the year bar none!!

Did you watch the highlight video for Humphrey? I was fortunate enough to see GI and Jefferson three times each. Trombley was a great player, but Humphrey was a step above.

He was a great player. However, he had no effect on the Milan game in which GI was dominated as Milan didn't have to run a single play outside the tackles. GI only scored in the late 4th as Milan put their back ups in. The kid for Jefferson was hands down the best player in the league.

Yea, he sure looked a "step above" Trombley and the devils when he scored so often, and stopped so many touchdowns from happening.

42-6 Red Devils, Just saying.

Grosse Ile had a better team than Jefferson. I guess it's never enough for some people.

He had fifteen tackles and two sacks, but thanks for the reminder.

Look Chris I get it, spread the love. I did watch the highlights and yes Trombley dropped Humphry for multiple losses. I also heard from offensive coordinators who planned games around Trombley and still had no luck. Humphry has been named and he is a fine player. Congrats..
