With the football season is more than halfway done, I started thinking of candidates for the Kitsap Sun’s football player of the year.
I came up with a short list, but here’s the thing: I don’t know if I can identify a front-runner at this point.
South Kitsap senior running back/defensive back Bryce Broome has been a do-it-all force for the Wolves. With five interceptions, he might be the most impactful defensive player in West Sound. And he’s a talent on kick/punt returns. But I’m not sure if he’s done enough offensively.
Central Kitsap senior running back Nick Zawadzki is third in rushing yards and second in rushing touchdowns, but doesn’t play on defense.
North Kitsap senior quarterback A.J. Milyard leads the area in passing yardage and touchdowns. A 12-7 touchdown-to-interception ratio isn’t all that impressive, but Milyard is completing 61 percent of his passes.
What do you think? What other candidates are out there? Who else deserves consideration and why?
