PAWTUCKET EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | JANUARY 9-15, 2019 SPORTS & RECREATION 11 The Providence Gridiron Club recently held its annual MVP Night at the Quonset "O" Club in North Kingstown. The Gridiron Club honored the offensive and defensive Most Valuable Players from the 44 football-playing high schools in the state, includ- ing Shea and Tolman. Left, attending the awards night were, from left, Shea defen- sive MVP ISIAH BATISTA, head coach DINO CAMPOPIANO, and offensive MVP JAYLEN SMITH. Right, Tolman's representatives at the awards night were head coach JASON DELAWRENCE, left, and defensive MVP CALVIN CONTRERAS. The Tigers' offensive MVP was Justin Klemanchuck. Providence Gridiron Club honors Pawtucket players at annual MVP Night Gonzalez said that he could see a big improvement from his role players from their first Donaldson Tournament game to last Friday night's win with their "execution and learning how to play the game." Gonzalez also said that he wants his players to get better game in and game out, and he noted that histori- cally, they tend to be a better team in the second half of the season. But he sees his team putting in the work and having it show during their practices. "I'm super proud of these girls," he said. "They are working hard." Before wrapping up the 2018 por- tion of their schedule, the Tigers came away with a big 54-39 victory over Central that saw the Tigers hold the Knights to 12 second-half points and Victoria Percy (13 points, 12 rebounds) and Al-Amir (12 points, five assists) lead the way. "Central is an athletic team," Gonzalez said. "We played them at our gym and we squeaked out a win, but they are going to give us trouble down the road. And we're looking at maybe a couple other teams com- ing down from D-II, Toll Gate and Pilgrim, that should also be tough, but we're going to take every game the same way and walk in with the same mentality." The Tigers are back in action on Thursday with a 4 p.m. game at Hope, and next Monday at 7 p.m., they will host Davies, which is cur- rently 3-0 in the division. From preceding page do you know?
