Bridgeport didn't walk away with the top honor at this evening's 35th Annual Frank Loria, but did snag one of the top five awards at the event held at the Bridgeport Conference Center.

Senior lineman Jimmy Allison was named the "Lineman of the Year."  The senior standout played offensive and defensive tackle for the Indians this year as the team finished the season 11-2 and lost to eventual Class AA state champion Bluefield in the semifinals of the state playoffs.

The winner of the Frank Loria Award for Harrison County's top player went to South Harrison senior Freddy Canary. The speedster led the Hawks back into the playoffs as the No. 2 seed before falling to Wheeling Central.

Canaray posted amazing numbers this year from his tailback position. He was the county's leading rusher with 2,215 yards as well as the leading scorer with 37 touchdowns.

The Hawks also landed another top honor. Coach Brad Jett was named the Harrison County  Coach of the Year.  The honor is fitting as Jett announced his retirement after decades as an assistant and head coach with the program.

Notre Dame also landed a major honor. The Fighting Irish's James Cava was the recipient of the Academic Award.

The Frank Loria Memorial Scholarship went to Nick Rush of South Harrison. It goes to a student with a 3.0 grade point average and community activities. The scholarship is for $1,000.
