Lower Merion's Matt O'Connor named Mini Max Award Winner

Lower Merion High School quarterback Matt O'Connor was recently selected as a Mini Max Award winner for the state of Pennsylvania by the Maxwell Football Club following a stellar senior season on the gridiron.

O'Connor was one of only 63 players from throughout eastern Pennsylvania to be named a Mini Max High School Award winner. This year's honorees were nominated by their coaches throughout the season and were evaluated based on many criteria including football performance, academics and community service.

O'Connor enjoyed a record breaking final year with Lower Merion as he became the school's all-time leading passer finishing the season with 160 completions on 295 attempts (54.2%) for 2060 yards and 14 touchdowns.

The Mini Max Award recipients will be honored at a dinner to be held on Thursday, January 10, 2019 at the Drexelbrook Catering Ballroom in Drexel Hill. The awards dinner is open to the public and tickets are available on the club's website.
