2013 Top 4 Players

Player of the Year:

Timothy MacMannis
Standing at 6’2”, MacMannis has been a force at the net over his past 4 years as the starting setting for Milford.  MacMannis helped lead is team to back-to-back state championship appearances. With season numbers of 802 assists, 60 blocks, 140 digs, a 90.4 serving percentage and 95 kills, there were not many people who could measure up at the end of the year. He finished his Milford career with 2,548 assists, with 3 games over 40 this season for the Scarlet Hawks. It will be interesting to see who will step up for Milford next season as MacMannis left a huge hole in the lineup. The computer engineering major looks to take his game to Umass Amherst this fall.
 
Jalen Penrose
His 6’8” stature alone made him a force, but add this to a great vertical and a ton of volleyball knowledge and there is no question why he was one of the most feared hitters in the state the past 4 years. Being named the Dual County MVP just adds on to the state championship title and being named as one of the nation’s best on the Fab 50 list as Penrose’s honors. While averaging 22+ kills in a match, Penrose finished off his career with 1,422 kills. He will take on the scholarship from Penn State next season as he continues his volleyball career.
Anderson Silva
The 6’4” junior, made sure he did everything he could for his team this season. With an outstanding offensive game, he broke a 25-year old record with 277 kills. He earned his career high 30 kill game this season. His defensive game is that of a libero as he raked in 356 digs as well this season. The 3 sport athlete knows how to do what he can to make his team win.
Sawyer Frederick
Being only 6’3” does not seem possible when you see how high this kid can get over the net. The Brownies’ go to guy came in in a big way during their state championship run.  Coming in last season as a starter, he helped lead Agawam to the Western Mass district championship. He earned himself 21 kills in Agawam’s district championship game, as well as, 26 in their state championship victory over Milford. He was unstoppable in that game out of the middle. Frederick heads down to North Carolina next season to play division two ball for Mount Olive.
