Bangor’s Sanderson Wins Travis Roy Award
Bangor High School senior Parker Sanderson has been named the 2012 Travis Roy Award winner at the annual Class A Hockey Coaches Association banquet in Lewiston.Sanderson beat out St. Dom’s goalie Grant Carrier, defenseman Nick Bagley of Scarborough and forward Cameron McLain of Cheverus.
Sanderson is the first player from Bangor to win the award, and the first player north of Lewiston to win it since 2006. He finished the season as the second leading scorer in the state with 25 goals and 26 assists for 51 points.
The award is given to the senior player in class A that is not only a dominant player on the ice, but also demonstrates character on and off the ice. It is named in honor of Yarmouth’s Travis Roy who’s college hockey career ended 11 seconds into his first shift at Boston University after suffering a paralyzing check into the boards.
Sanderson and Rams coach Quinn Paradis will be on Monday’s Morning Pitch at 7:15 to talk about the honor.
