CONCORD – The South Piedmont 3A announced the top football players in the conference on Saturday, and league co-champion Northwest Cabarrus led the way.
The Trojans had the league’s top offensive and defensive performers, as senior quarterback Nick Wilds-Lawing was named the SPC Offensive Player of the Year and senior Andre Hill is the 2019 Defensive Player of the Year.

Cox Mill’s Craig Stewart, who led the Chargers to a share of the SPC title, is the SPC Coach of the Year. The Chargers became the first squad to win a regular-season game against Northwest Cabarrus since 2017 and went on to win their first conference championship in program history.
