NORWALK, Conn. -- Norwalk native Kevin Pierre-Louis, a senior linebacker at Boston College, has been named the 2013 Connecticut Player of the Year by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.
Pierre-Louis is the second player from Boston College, joining former Eagle Bill Romanowski in 1987, to earn the award.
“We are pleased to recognize Kevin Pierre-Louis as our Connecticut Player of the Year,” foundation president James Monico said in a statement. “Kevin has been a defensive force for the Eagles and is a worthy recipient of this honor.”
Pierre-Louis ranked second on the team and sixth in the Atlantic Coast Conference with 104 tackles, 64 of them solo. His six quarterback sacks places him 13th in the conference. He has also forced two opponent fumbles.
An all-star as a high school player at King Low Heywood Thomas in Stamford, he led the team to two Fairchester League titles. In 2009, Pierre-Louis recorded 159 tackles and rushed for 914 yards and 13 touchdowns and was named the Gatorade Connecticut Football Player of the Year.
Pierre-Louis, along with the members of the 2013 Walter Camp All-America team, will be recognized at the organization’s national awards banquet on Saturday, Jan. 11, at the Yale University Commons in New Haven.
