Berlin running back Drew Glotfelty received the honor after a spectacular senior season. Glotfelty, who was also a standout player on defense, rushed for a school single-season record of 2,012 yards while helping to lead the Mountaineers to the District 5 Class A championship.
He scored 30 touchdowns, including 24 rushing and six receiving while accounting for 180 total points. Glotfelty also had 24 receptions for 327 yards.
For the second straight season, a North Star player was named the defensive MVP. Junior Levi Albright earned the award after putting up some impressive numbers from his linebacker position. He made 164 total tackles, including 100 solo stops. Albright, who also helped anchor the Cougars' offensive line, had 12 tackles for loss, eight sacks, four interceptions, two fumble recoveries and caused three fumbles.
Berlin's Doug Paul was voted by his peers as the county's Coach of the Year. Paul, in his 11th season as head coach, guided the Mountaineers to their first District 5-A title since 2004. Berlin beat two-time defending champion North Star in the district final and finished with an overall record of 11-2 after falling to perennial powerhouse Clairton in the quarterfinals of the PIAA state playoffs.
