Elder’s Bittner, Moeller’s Rosfeld Named Player, Coach Of The Year

The Greater Catholic League South Division is pleased to announce its all-star football teams and special award winners for the 2018 season.  First- and second-team members of this prestigious team, along with winners of the categorical awards, were voted on by league coaches at a special meeting this past Sunday.  Elder senior quarterback Michael Bittner, a dual threat for the Panthers who completed 157-of-269 passes for a league-leading 2,195 yards and 15 touchdowns while also rushing 165 times for 519 yards, third best in the GCL South, and 10 TDs , is the GCL South Player of the Year.

First-year Moeller coach Doug Rosfeld, whose team won the school’s first outright league championship since 2013 with an unbeaten 3-0 record and also qualified for the Division I state playoffs after finishing the regular season with a 6-4 record against a difficult schedule, is the Coach of the Year.  Here is a look at the all-league teams, with the players listed in alphabetical order by school, position, class, height and weight.
