Way Too Early Player of the Year: A.J. English, Iona, Jr. - The second leading scorer from last season, next to Marist’s Chavaughn Lewis, English proved he has the skills to be a star in the conference in his first full season. There’s no reason why English can’t take another step forward as the go-to option for the Gaels as they seek to reach a fifth straight postseason.
