Moorhead’s Feeney Wins Minnesota Gatorade Football Player Of Year; Tips Cap To Those Around Him
The senior QB takes home his second Minnesota "Player of the Year" award this season
MOORHEAD, MINN (KVRR) – Moorhead High’s Trey Feeney is making sure the Fighting Hawk Faithful knows his name heading into next year.
The senior QB was named Minnesota Football Gatorade Player of The Year not long after taking home the Associated Press’ award for best player in the state. Feeney lead an offense that averaged almost 45 points through seven games in the fall, tossing just under 2,000 yards along with 36 touchdowns and just one interception. He helped the Spuds to a Class 5A State Championship that the AP voted on. But if you’ve heard Feeney react to winning awards in the past, then his response probably won’t come as a surprise.
“Not many of these things happen if you don’t have a good team and I had great teammates and coaches around me growing up, my youth, middle school, and high school career.” he said. “It goes to those guys, too, knowing that they helped me and everything they did to me. It truly is why I’m here today. You can’t do it without great people around you.”
Feeney threw for at least six touchdowns on four different occasions this past season.
