Trench Trophy finalists to be revealed LIVE on PrepTalkTV Sunday

Another week, another exciting live announcement on PrepTalkTV Sunday.

We're thrilled to announce that PrepTalkTV Sunday, in cooperation with the Trench Trophy Committee, will be announcing the 10 finalists for the coveted lineman award during our 8:30 p.m. live program Sunday night (which can be seen here or at the buffalonews.com home page).

Last week we unveiled the finalists for the Connolly Cup.

For the last decade, Trench Trophy committee members have scouted games throughout the season and they also break down film at weekly meetings. The Trench Trophy committee, like the Connolly Cup committee, announces a weekly honor roll throughout the season with the intent of determining the top lineman in Western New York. 

The top 10 finalists are traditionally announced late in the season. The winner is unveiled at the group's annual banquet. This year's 10th annual banquet will be Dec. 5 at the Lancaster Elks Lodge.

Trench Trophy co-chairmen Carl Kuras and Ed Sciera will join us on PrepTalkTV Sunday for the live announcement of the top 10. 

Devon Leach of Orchard Park was last year's winner. Check out a ton of information on the award at trenchtrophy.com.

PrepTalkTV Sunday is our weekly 8:30 p.m. live show at buffalonews.com in which Lauren Mariacher and I recap each weekend of high school football with highlights, interviews, analysis and in-studio guests. This week we'll have a rundown of this busy weekend of five huge games and we'll look ahead to next weekend's state championships.

PrepTalkTV Sunday to review BIG weekend, has BIG announcement of Connolly Cup's top 10 tonight at 8:30

Eleven weeks down, six teams still playing. We'll wrap up the Monsignor Martin semifinals and the Far West Regionals from a big, busy weekend, and we'll also have a big announcement during tonight's 11th episode of PrepTalkTV Sunday tonight at 8:30 p.m.

The 10 finalists for the Connolly Cup will also be announced during our show, which can be seen here -- and also right on the home page of buffalonews.com

PrepTalkTV Sunday follows tonight's 7:30 broadcast of the [BN]TheHuddle Bills wrapup show, which can also be seen in the window below.

 

As always, we'll have highlights, postgame interviews and analysis. 

Afterwards, I'll have a live chat right here. It should start around 9:30 p.m. -- the exact time depends on how long the live video show goes. Let us know what you thought of the show, as well as all of the high school action, football and all fall sports.

As always, anything in the world of high school sports -- or our coverage of it -- is up for discussion.

As always, please just ask questions once. I promise I'll get to them.
