Blake Ware has been named as our first ever Defensive Player of the Year for the 2020 football season!
Ware completed his sensational sophomore season with O’Connor football with a playoff run, which was a complete turn around from a losing record, just a season ago.
Ware would finish with his season with an astonishing 22.5 tackles on the year! He also had 78 total tackles in just ten games played, averaging nearly 8 tackles per game!
Ware also grabbed 3.5 sacks on the quarterback on the year, as well as forcing 3 fumbles and recovering 3 fumbles, in addition to 2 PBU’s!
Quite an impressive season for the dominant linebacker!
As his semester ended, Ware also took care of business in the classroom, as he completed the first semester with a 4.0 GPA, showing coaches that he cares about the classroom as much as he does the football field.
Ware was also named to the Honorable Mention All-Academic Football Team for 6-A football in Arizona.
With O’Connor football on the come up, look for Ware to have an even more dominant junior season next fall as he suits up for the Eagles again in 2021!
