Out of 16 our division winners, Anthony and the selection committee which included: Michael Muñoz, Dave Lapham, Mike Dyer and Andrew Whitworth, chose two athletes as this season’s overall Offensive Lineman and overall Defensive Lineman. Joshua Myers of Miamisburg HS was named the Offensive Lineman of the Year and Jerron Cage was named the Defensive Lineman of the year!

We were also very excited to award Matt Sichtermann of Kings High School with our first ever “In The Trenches” Leadership Award! This award was added to our Linemen of the Year program this year to recognize the student-athlete who best represents the Anthony Muñoz Foundation’s mission and values both on and off the football field.

We also want to extend a special thank you to our sponsor, Roofing Annex! We would not have been able to recognize everything these student-athletes have accomplished without your support.

The Foundation was honored to be able to recognize these athletes for their accomplishments on the football field, in their classrooms and in their communities. Good luck to all of our winners as they continue their football and education careers in college!
