SALEM NEWS FALL 2 FOOTBALL PLAYER OF THE YEAR

JAKE CONNOLLY

Bishop Fenwick Senior

Wide receiver/Strong safety

The question isn't what did Jake Connolly do for the unbeaten Bishop Fenwick football team this spring. It's more what didn't do ... or, to be even more accurate, what couldn't the senior superstar accomplish on the gridiron for the Crusaders.

At 5-foot-10 and 190 pounds, the Salem native combined terrific speed, outstanding football awareness, physical prowess and leaping ability into the complete football package for his team. Whatever head coach David Woods and his staff came up with for Connolly to do, he did so to near perfection, often finding himself in the end zone at the end of a play or, if it happened on the defensive side of the ball, giving his team possession or making a crucial stop.

Jake Connolly of Bishop Fenwick, a 2021 Fall 2 Salem News football all-star

Connolly finished his senior season with 12 touchdowns and 74 points in just six games. He had over 500 yards of offense, leading his club in receptions (21), receiving yards (410) and touchdowns caught (8). A testament to his ability to gain huge chunks of yardage after the catch, Connolly averaged 19.5 yards per catch and had scoring receptions of . He found the end zone in five of his team's six games and had a two-point conversion in the other.

Named the Most Valuable Player in the Catholic Central League, Connolly exploded for a school record tying five touchdowns in a 55-6 destruction of Cardinal Spellman, an outing in which he caught four passes for 149 yards and scored on each one of them, coming from 20, 35, 45 and 49 yards out. Those four receiving TDs also tied a Fenwick record. For good measure, he added a 97-yard punt return to the house and made 11 tackles on defense.

Want more of Connolly's excellence? He had 40 tackles from the Fenwick secondary and two interceptions, finishing his career with an even 160 stoops and eight picks (including one for 6 points as a junior in the 2019 playoffs). Connolly, whom Woods called "perhaps the most versatile player we've ever had", was capable of playing fullback, split end, tight end, linebacker or even tailback if needed. He could've had even more points, but two punt returns he returned for scores were called back because of Fenwick penalties.

Connolly will be continuing his football career at Ithaca College in New York, where both of his parents attended (and his father, Scott, was an All-America football player). He figures to play either in the secondary or at outside linebacker for the Bombers while studying communications. 

2021 FALL 2 SALEM NEWS OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR

JOSH ROBERTSON

Marblehead Junior

Quarterback

2021 Fall 2 Salem News  football all-stars

Perhaps the only thing that stopped Northeastern Conference North MVP Josh Robertson from breaking several Marblehead High records this year was the season being shortened to just seven games.

With the training wheels off and full command of Marblehead's hurry-up spread offense, Robertson easily outpaced the rest of the North Shore and Northeastern Conference with 1,230 passing yards and 17 touchdowns through the air. He completed 73 percent of his passes, only threw three interceptions and wasn't picked off in five of seven games while being the first signal caller to ever lead the Magicians (7-0) to an undefeated and untied season.

Elusive and quick, Robertson led Marblehead with five rushing touchdowns. He picked up 267 yards on the ground, fearlessly using his legs to convert a number of crucial third downs. In his career, Robertson already has 30 touchdown passes and more than 2,800 passing yards.

2021 FALL 2 SALEM NEWS DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR

COLE TERRY

Running back/Linebacker

The aptly named 'Cole Train' made opposing ballcarriers feel like they were hit by a locomotive when he made contact — and the Cape Ann League Baker MVP certainly left a lasting impression on the Tigers football program as well. A two-year captain who led Ipswich to its first perfect season (6-0) since 1970, Terry was one of the area's most ferocious and dependable tacklers and finished the season with 40.

A multi-year all-star and Salem News All-Decade pick, Terry was equally effective with a punishing running style. His 552 yards this Fall 2 season tied for second best on the North Shore, and he wraps up a stellar career with 3,302 career rushing yards and 21 scores. The Tigers' Team MVP said he's been inspired by his father since the day he was born and showed off his versatility with both a TD reception and a TD pass on a trick play.

2021 Fall 2 Salem News  football all-stars

Terry capped his tremendous career by scoring with 22.3 seconds to play as the Tigers defeated Hamilton-Wenham, 25-21, to complete their perfect season. He'll continue his career next year at Mass. Maritime Academy.

2021 FALL 2 SALEM NEWS LINEMAN OF THE YEAR

COLLIN TAYLOR

St. John's Prep Senior

Rarely has a football player on the North Shore combined such brute force and sheer physicality with precise blocks, cuts and ability to shed opposing linemen as well as Collin Taylor did during his St. John's Prep tenure.

Teams tried to run away from his side of the field but he found a way to make plays with regularity, having an uncanny ability to gravitate towards the ballcarrier.
