PETER GWILYM

Football

Three years ago, Cheverus Coach John Wolfgram decided to put the ball in Peter Gwilym’s hands.

The rest, as they say, is history.

As the Stags’ quarterback, Gwilym, a senior, led the Stags to a 12-0 record and the Class A state championship.

In the regional final, Gwilym returned an interception 106 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter of a 35-34 win over Deering. Later, with his team trailing by five points, Gwilym drove the Stags 70 yards for the winning score. On that drive, he turned a broken play into a 37-yard touchdown run that was called back because of clipping. The Stags, though, scored a few plays later. Gwilym called it “the signature drive” of the season.

Gwilym, who will attend Ohio State, also won the Fitzpatrick Trophy as the top senior football player in the state.
