Big School Player of the Year: Brendan Nosovitch, Allentown Central Catholic

Written by: on Saturday, January 1st, 2011. Follow David Mika on Twitter.


Including the 2010 season, there have been 44 quarterbacks that have posted a season of at least 1,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards. But the other 43 such field generals didn’t come close to what Brendan Nosovitch did in 2010.

When the dust settled on Allentown Central Catholic’s 16-0 season and third PIAA championship in school history, Nosovitch finished with 4,759 yards of total offense (3,112 passing, 1,647 rushing) and accounted for 68 total touchdowns (43 passing, 25 rushing). Nosovitch has posted an impressive 28-2 record as a starting quarterback and led ACC to consecutive District 11 AAA championships – the Vikings first consecutive District crowns since 1997 and 1998.

#5 has thrown for 5,440 career yards and run for 2,810, and has a chance to become just the second Keystone State quarterback to post 4,000 career passing and rushing yards. He was the driving force behind an Allentown Central Catholic team that set a Lehigh Valley record with 663 points scored this past season, blowing past the previous standard established in 2006 by Bethlehem Liberty (618). Nosovitch has generated interest from several Division-1 football programs.

    He’s a great player and a special gifted athlete. congrats!
    Next year he will have to deal with a healthy Desmon Peoples and a loaded Archbishop Wood team with revenge on there minds. I’m already looking forward to that match up.

    Awesome! Just awesome and impressive! What’s really scary is that he has one more year to go! On another note, he’s not only a great athlete/player but more importantly a great person!
