Offensive Player of The Year is Back

August 15, 2012 - American Indoor Football (AIF) - Harrisburg Stampede News Release

HARRISBURG, PA (August 15, 2012) - Harrisburg Stampede's Head Coach, Bernie Nowotarski announced today that the Stampede has come to terms with 2012 Offensive Player of the Year, EJ Nemeth for the 2013 Season.

Sometimes it takes a few years for teams to gel and become the type of team that is in the hunt every year for a Championship. The Stampede was in that hunt last season but came up just a bit short. According to Offensive League MVP, EJ Nemeth, "We have some unfinished business to attend to". Head Coach Nowotarski likes that attitude in his QB and his Team. "Having most of this group stay together for another season and under a system that they understand and being led by EJ is just the type of situation you want your team to be in as the off season progresses".

EJ led the Stampede Offense with a mix of passing and running. EJ rushed for 134 yards on 37 carries and 16 touchdowns. He completed 133 passes of 257 attempts for 1639 yards and 33 touchdowns. It was those stats in just 9 games along with his leadership that put the Stampede in position to win a Championship and made him the Leagues Offensive Player of the Year. "We didn't reach our goal and win the Championship, the motivation right now is to come back for the 2013 season with only one goal on our minds, to win a Championship", commented Nemeth.
