Abbey's Kreinz wins New England player of year honors
PORTSMOUTH — Portsmouth Abbey School’s Austin Kreinz has been named Co-Player of the Year in New England Prep Football by the New England Prep School Athletics Council (NEPSAC).
Kreinz, a Dean’s List student from Delafield, Wisconsin, has left his mark on Ravens football during his two-year career at Portsmouth Abbey. The 12th grader and co-captain of this year’s squad closed out the season with an Abbey record of 27 touchdowns (of the team's 2012 total of 35 TDs), bringing his two-year total to 35 touchdowns — another school record.
A running back, Kreinz earned several other significant honors for his performance this fall. He, along with teammate Severin St. Claire, was selected All-New England, and he was named the Evergreen League Player of the Year.
"Austin is a great leader and player, and he displays great sportsmanship," said Abbey Director of Athletics and Head Varsity Football Coach Al Brown. "He is well deserving of all the recognition that he has received."
Kreinz has committed to the University of Pennsylvania for next fall where he will play lacrosse.
