Player of the Year: Haris Lekaj, Long Island City
From his gold spikes to his confident demeanor, Lekaj acts like a superstar. Even better, he backed it up this year, leading LIC to an 11-0 record. Moreover, while his competition may not be what it is in other divisions, Lekaj was clearly the best player in the Queens this fall - on offense and defense. The senior strong safety/quarterback was in the top three in the Cup Division in passing yards, completions, touchdown passes, interceptions and tackles. The unquestioned leader of the Bulldogs, Lekaj never sits out a play, blocking on special teams, and is a second coach on the field. &#8220The kid's a terrific athlete,” Long Island City coach Stephen Agresti said. &#8220He's fearless. He goes in with the attitude of being the best player on the team, if not the best player on the field.”
