Brady, Scarpa named MVPs of MVC

Two of the most prolific football players in area history received top honors from the Merrimack Valley Conference.

Division 1 MVP C.J. Scarpa enjoyed a record-breaking junior season then far exceeded it this fall. The Andover High senior signal-caller threw a whopping 32 passes to lead all of Eastern Mass. and shatter the previous area record by nine.

Scarpa, who led Andover to the MVC 1 title, will be playing next fall at Elon University in North Carolina.

Haverhill senior running back Chance Brady exceeded 2,000 yards this fall and stamped himself as easily the most prolific runner ever to wear the Brown and Gold.

He has a long list of suitors including some NESCAC schools like Tufts.

Only three sophomore made the first team: Central Catholic linebacker Markus Edmunds, Haverhill wide receiver Jordan Javier and Billerica defensive back Nick Orekoya.

In all, 25 players made the MVC Division 1 first team and 23 the first team in Division 2.

Repeat first-team honorees included Brady, Andover receiver Will Heikkinen, Central Catholic offensive lineman Ryan Barry and Haverhill offensive lineman Dan Burrows.

Central defensive back D’andre Drummond Mayire and North Andover linebacker Tyler Salois were the only juniors named to the first team.

The conference added a team and eliminated 10 most valuable players. North Andover joined the loop this fall. Last year a mind-boggling 12 players, including Haverhill’s Brady, received some sort of MVP honors. This year it was just Scarpa and Brady.
