Thank you for visiting our web site, after more than 10 years and honoring more than 500 great, local, student-athletes, we are working on redesigning and updating the content on the site. In the meantime, you are still able to learn more about our award, view current nominees, and find our contact information using the links above.

The TRENCH TROPHY, WNY Lineman of the Year Award is run and sponsored by Lancaster Elks Lodge #1478, a national, not-for-profit, charitable, organization.
The award is geared towards the recognition of high school football players who predominantly play the position of lineman. The award winners are determined by a group of qualified members (the committee), comprised of coaches and former players.
Every week, our volunteer scouts attend the games of more than 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 12 finalists (from Section VI, class AA, A, B, C, D, and Monsignor Martin), and then one final winner who receives a college scholarship.
Now that you know a little bit about our award, take a look around our site and be sure to let us know about the great player you saw this past weekend.
