In his third year as a starting quarterback, Greenwood’s Ben Heller proved to be as much of a positive factor away from the cheering crowds as he was on Friday evenings.
“Ben practiced hard, played hard and became a great leader for us. As a junior it was more by example, but this season he was much more vocal,” said Greenwood coach Mike Campbell, whose squad finished with a 9-2 record. “He understood as a senior what he needed to grow into. He understood the expectation of what we needed from him.”
Heller is The Daily Journal’s Player of the Year for 2012 after running for 1,225 yards and 22 touchdowns and still finding time to throw for 618 more yards.
