Another New England NCAA Division III football regular season has concluded.

As expected, it was another exciting season that needed 11 weeks to determine conference champions.

Before we turn our attention to tomorrow’s postseason contests, along with both New England Bowls, it is time to unveil our end-of-season team, which includes our offensive, defensive, and special teams’ student-athletes of the year.

Noontime’s End-of-Season Awards

Offensive Player of the Year: Phil Lutz (Tufts University): Lutz concluded his senior season by stuffing the stat sheet with 10 catches for 237 yards and six touchdowns against Middlebury College. He broke the single-game record for yards, touchdown receptions, and total touchdowns, and garnered a slew of weekly honors, including the final New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Offensive Player of the Week award.

The North Caldwell, New Jersey native ended the season by establishing new single-season records in receptions (78), receiving yards (1,221), and touchdowns (14). Lutz’s 1,221 receiving yards is the most any NESCAC receiver has recorded in a single season since Mark Breuler concluded Wesleyan University’s 2017 campaign with 1,172 yards.  

Defensive Player of the Year: Hector Johnson (Endicott College): Johnson concluded his team’s 2022 regular season by tallying a slew of career-highs in solo stops (30), total tackles (46.0), sacks (14.5), and tackles for a loss (21). The 14.5 sacks are the most any Endicott defender has recorded in a single season.  

The Worcester, Massachusetts native was named this year’s Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) Defensive Player of the Year and Defensive Lineman of the Year after anchoring an Endicott defense that has limited opponents to 6.5 points per game. Johnson recorded at least one sack in eight of 10 contests this fall with his best performance occurring against WPI in week two. Johnson stuffed the stat sheet with six total tackles, including four sacks for a loss of 28 yards, and a blocked field goal.

Special Teamer of the Year: Christian Hutra (Springfield College): Hutra concluded the regular season with a career-high 76 points off 10 field goals and 46 extra points while earning his second consecutive New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Special Teams Athlete of the Year award.

The Holmes, New York native converted 10 of 11 field goal attempts, including a career and season-best 46-yard boot in a come-from-behind win over MIT earlier this month. Hutra did not miss a single extra point, connecting on all 46 attempts while concluding the regular season as the leading NEWMAC kicker in various categories, including field goal percentage (91%), extra points made, and points.
