MVP Honors

Andrew Ford , a 6’2″, 190-pound rising senior out of Cedar Cliff High School (Camp Hill, PA), earned MVP honors at quarterback, beating out the likes of Lake Braddock (Burke, VA) star Caleb Henderson (UNC–bound) and Stratford (Goose Creek, S.C.) standout Jacob Park (considering offers from Alabama, VT, and more).
