Despite missing eight games due to injury this season, Lafayette’s Reeves Trott still took home Conference 25 Player of the Year honors.

Trott scored 16 goals and assisted on 10 goals in just nine games this season for the Rams.

Lafayette Coach Brian Sorrell was quick to point out the Lafayette captain played sparingly after returning from his injury.

“You think about the games he did play, he averaged about two goals a game,” Sorrell said of Trott. “When he came back, things starting rolling for us.”

Four more Lafayette players earned first-team All-Conference 25 distinctions. Forward Jason Eckenrode, forward Thomas Pogue, midfielder Matt Beatty and defender Denzel Speed were all first-team selections.

“I’m really proud of all the guys that made it,” Sorrell said. “It’s nice to be named All-Conference, but we’re looking at this with one goal in mind: a state championship finals. It’s nice to receive these honors, but we need to focus on the task at hand.”

While Trott took home Player of the Year honors, York Coach Ryan Hagerty earned the All-Conference Coach of the Year distinction for navigating the Falcons to a conference championship.

Hagerty had five of his players named to the Conference 25 first team. Those players included forwards Bailey McClure and Cameron Dail, midfielder Max Poelker, defender Gavin Homan and goalkeeper Jacob Reimers.

Warhill junior midfielder Noah Leon rounded out the Historic Triangle first-team All-Conference 25 selections.
