Senior tight end/defensive end Andrew Szczerba this year has led his Salesianum squad, ranked No. 1 in Delaware, to a regular season record of 10-0 for the first time in school history.
His performance over the course of the 2006 season earned him All-Catholic Conference First Team selections at both tight end and defensive end.
Now he has been named as Delaware's Gatorade Player of the Year, an honor many of his future teammates like Pat Devlin, Evan Royster, Derrick Williams and Justin King.
During the regular season Szczerba had 10 receptions for 175 yards (17.5 YPC) and three touchdowns. Scout's Matt Alkire had the opportunity to see Szczerba in action earlier this season and provided his thoughts on the prospect, saying, "The first thing of note with Andrew Szczerba is that he is indeed every bit of his listed 6-foot-6, 250-pound frame. He has a lean, muscular frame that could easily handle added muscle mass which he’ll need at the collegiate level."
