MS Player of the Year: Skowhegan's Marcus Christopher
Marcus Christopher passes Skowhegan to PTC B title.

...Christopher completed 63.5 percent of his passes (219-345) and had three 400-yard pasing games. He hit his stride in Week 3, a 57-42 loss at Messalonskee. While Skowhegan struggled to stop the Eagles strong running game, Christopher threw for 448 yards and four touchdowns to keep the game close. He followed that with a 472-yard, seven-touchdown effort in a 48-29 win at Brunswick. Two weeks later, on Oct. 6, Christopher threw for 440 yards and eight touchdowns in a 56-54 overtime loss at Biddeford.

Christopher threw six touchdown passes and ran for another in a 58-56 win over Lawrence. That victory began Skowhegan’s four-game win streak that carried through the regional playoffs. Cony coach BL Lippert was impressed with Christopher’s pocket presence.

“All teams try to get pressure on him and disrupt his rhythm, but even if you do that, he moves around the pocket subtlely. Certainly against us he stepped up, rolled out, made plays on the move. It’s something you can’t really coach. It’s just an inate ability. That makes it really tough to defend,” Lippert said ... -the-year/
