A.N. Myer’s Tyler Goforth and Eugene Park have been named the offensive and defensive MVPs of the Niagara Region High School Athletic Association Tier 1 senior football league.
The Marauders went unbeaten in NRHSAA play, won the Southern Ontario Secondary Schools Association Bowl and advanced to the school’s first Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations Bowl game since 2016.
Goforth chalked up some impressive numbers from the quarterback position. In the air, he completed 133 of 189 passes for a 70.4 per cent completion rate. He passed for 2,038 yards with 26 touchdown passes and only two interceptions. On the ground, he rushed for 601 yards and seven touchdowns.
“Tyler was the fuel for our offence. His commitment to improving his skills the last few off-seasons was incredible,” Myer head coach Dave Buchanan said. “That commitment resulted in an amazing season with great team and individual results.”
