Cony senior quarterback Luke Duncklee was added to the list of semifinalists for the Fitzpatrick Trophy, according to committee chairman Jack Dawson. He said Friday the committee reviewed all the applicants and decided to make Duncklee the 13th semifinalist for the award, handed out to the state’s top senior football player.
Duncklee ran for 1,306 yards and 18 touchdowns and threw for 1,775 yards and 13 TDs while also averaging 36.6 yards as a punter and making 38 tackles as a defensive back for the Rams. His running and passing accounted for all but one of Cony’s touchdowns.
Cony finished the season 4-5, losing to Mt. Blue in the Eastern Maine Class A quarterfinals.
The other 12 semifinalists for the award are Peter Gwilym of Cheverus, Jamie Ross of Deering, Max Cloutier of Leavitt, Scarborough’s Michael Cyr, Ethan Drigotas of Kennebunk, Nicholas Gagne of Biddeford, Hampden’s Jon Haws, Cam Kaubris of Mountain Valley, Caleb Kenney of Portland, Josh Woodward of Thornton Academy, Nick Proscia of Yarmouth and Kyle Bishop of Waterville.
The 13 semifinalists will be narrowed down to three finalists next month, and the 41st winner of the Fitzpatrick will be announced Jan. 16 in Portland.
