The 38th annual Tri-State Mini Max Awards banquet was held Sunday at the Drexelbrook Catering Events Center in Drexel Hill, PA.

For the first year, the Pennsylvania and New Jersey winners were joined by the Delaware high school players. This is the 8th year that the First State players were honored by the MFC. A senior football player was honored by each of the high schools in Delaware with the exception of Odessa, which will not have a senior class until next season. The criteria for being named a mini max recipient include not only outstanding ability on the field, but also the achievements in the classroom as well as community involvement. 

Ed Aiken is the chairperson for the Delaware chapter and he told us, “this year was one of the toughest years ever for selecting a single winner from the state as there were so many excellent young men to choose from.”

The Maxwell Football Club selected Wilmington Friends’ Robby Tattersall as the 2022 overall winner. Tattersall helped lead the Quakers to the school’s first state championship since 1984 when his grandfather (Bob Tattersall) coached the team. Bob was an associate coach this past season, as he helped his son Rob secure a title in Class 2A. Robby was named 1st team 2A all-state as a quarterback and defensive end and will continue his academic and athletic career at Yale University.

The past Delaware winners include Nolan Henderson, Will Knight and his brother Wayne Knight all from Smyrna. Colby Reeder from Salesianum was the very 1st Delawarean to be honored in 2015. The others are Brock Keeler of Woodbridge, C. J. Henry from Hodgson and Ethan Potter from Caravel.
