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 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

PrepTalkTV Sunday is our weekly 8:30 p.m. live show at 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.
