Everett's DiBiaso is Fox25 Player of the Year

Everett High junior quarterback Jonathan DiBiaso has been named Fox 25's "High School Friday" Player of the Year, as voted on in an online poll on myfoxboston.com.

When the polls closed last Monday, DiBiaso (12,383) was ahead of the runner-up, Cardinal Spellman's Blaise Branch, by more than 1,000 votes. DiBiaso will join Fox 25 sports anchor Ryan Asselta live in-studio tonight at 6 p.m. to receive the award.

More than 32,000 students and fans cast their votes December 17th through January 16th for the player they felt most deserved the award. The nominees included the best high school players featured on “High School Friday,” a weekly FOX25 News and myfoxboston.com segment highlighting sports and student life.
