Player of the year; Bryan Rotatori.

When reflecting on his most memorable moment of his remarkable high school lacrosse career, Rotatori did so with a touch of sadness yet was cherishing the thrills he shared with his Grafton teammates. "It was the last circle huddle of my senior year after the loss to St. John's," the Hometeam Magazine Player of the Year said. The Indians had come oh-so-close to a Central Mass. title in that 11-10 overtime loss in the final, after Rotatori adjusted his style of play to propel his team during the postseason run. Rotatori, who finished with more than 400 points (an impressive achievement for a midfielder), only scored four goals in the playoffs but had 18 assists, many to fellow Super Teamer Tyler Reilly. He finished the season with 32 goals and 42 assists for 74 points, good for fifth among CMass scorers, all while being face-guarded in 19 of the Indians' 23 games. Rotatori, a repeat Super Teamer and All-American, led Grafton (19-4) in ground balls and faceoff win percentage. Last season, he posted a 100-point season (60 goals, 42 assists). Rotatori also earned All-State honors in soccer last fall while being coached by his father, who starred in lacrosse at UMass and for the Boston Blazers. The son of Nancy and Alan Rotatori of Grafton will enroll at Keene State College in the fall.
