Cheverus senior Frank Curran, far right, receives the Frank J. Gaziano Award as the state’s top defensive lineman at a ceremony Sunday in Augusta. Curran, joined by Jeff Kane, president of National Distributors, Winslow’s Alec Clark, the Gaziano winner on the offensive side, and Peter DeSimon, president of the Gaziano Awards, was honored for hard work on the field, in the classroom and in the community. Curran received a trophy, leather jacket and scholarship of $5,000, the largest high school football scholarship of its kind in the country. Curran, a three-year starter for the Stags, was captain of the 2015 squad. He finished the 2015 season with 63 tackles and five sacks and was named lineman of the year in Class A North. Portland’s Charlie Kovarik was a runner-up for the offensive lineman of the year award.
