Welcome to the Official Online Home of the TRENCH TROPHY, WNY Lineman of the Year Award. The award is run and sponsored by Lancaster Elks Lodge #1478, which is a national, charitable organization.
The TRENCH TROPHY is an award geared towards the recognition of high school football players who predominantly play the position of lineman. The award winners are determined by a committee of qualified members, comprised of coaches and former players.
Every week, our scouts attend the games of more then 80 schools to rate and grade players for nominations. At the end of the year, all of the nominated players are eligible for the final award, and are broken down to 10 finalists (from AA, A, B, C, D, Monsignor Martin, and, Harvard Cup), and then one final winner who receives a college scholarship.
