Lycoming Football - 2019 Offensive and Defensive Player of the Year Honors

2019 PLAYER of the YEAR  HONORS - OFFENSE AND DEFENSE

OFFENSE: Sr WR Stephen Toczylousky 


MR "T" CAME OUT OF THE SHADOWS
What a year this senior wide receiver had! I remember talking to his family after the Widener win asking, "Where did he come from?" I found out soon enough that injuries plagued him affecting his play. But a healthy Toczylousky in 2019 put it all together. Stephen played in all 10 games for the Warriors catching 38 passes. Amazing catches for sure. During the Misericordia game he caught a ball at mid-field and watched himself jog to the endzone on the video scoreboard. No one in his sights! Then he repeated that feat and more as he had his longest touchdown run of 83 yards.

Stephen averaged 21 yards per catch and 81 yards per game. All on only 38 catches. The reason I say "only 38 catches," is because last years famed Lyco receiver Nick Costello had 53 catches. Nick averaged 17 yards per reception and 80 yards per game. 2015 senior wide receiver Ryan Umpleby, one of our greatest, had impressive numbers. In 10 games, Ryan was 20 yards short of the 1,000 yard mark with 7 touchdowns.
