2015 CONNOLLY CUP WINNER
South Park High is not only the first city school to win a State Championship, but now a Connolly Cup as well. Senior quarterback Tyree Brown was named the 44th recipient of the prestigous award. He is only the 4th player in Western New York history to pass for over 2,000 yards and rush for over 1,000 in a single season.
OUR PRIMARY PROGRAM SPONSOR
ADPRO SPORTS is now a supporter of the Connolly Cup. We encourage you to visit their website and find out how they may be able to work with your school or team. The Connolly Cup certainly appreciates all ADPRO has done for us.
 ABOUT OUR AWARD
Started in 1972 by the Riverside Athletic Club, the goal of our award is to recognize outstanding varsity football players from over 80 schools in Western New York State.

During the season our group scouts student athletes looking for outstanding performances on a weekly basis. The players are judged on a number of factors including, strength of opposition, sportsmanship, athletic ability, team play, and work ethic. Following the final game of the season, discussion and game tape is used to narrow our list of outstanding performers to the top ten.

The ten finalists are broken down using a secret ballot and grading system to determine the one final winner. The finalists are honored at a press conference and luncheon.
