The Dauphin Clippers football team left everything on the field in the championship final of the Rural Manitoba Football League and despite coming out on the losing end, the Clippers stayed right with the undefeated Swan Valley Tigers all game long and it came right down to the wire.

And now that another off-season is here, the RMFL has announced its season-ending award nominees and several Clippers made the list this year.

Matt Zurba ran for 209 yards this season on 24 carries with two touchdowns and 25 yards receiving. 

Sully Fox is a nominee for the most outstanding player on the offensive line. 

Joseph Lopez put together an incredible season defensively. He had 37 tackles and six assists. On top of that, Lopez had one sack, one fumble recovery, three interceptions and two knockdowns. Joseph also ran for 344 yards on just 31 carries.

Damon Nepinak recorded 12 tackles, six assists and one knockdown. An interception he made was also the Clipper player of the year. 

Sergio Garcia made eight of the nine converts he kicked this season and he's a nominee for the special team's most outstanding player. 

In his first year of football, Scott Gower was put into many different situations and he did a great job on the field and now he's a nominee for the league's rookie of the year award.

The Norris Aitken Memorial Award recognizes a player who combines football ability, academic ability and other criteria schools deem to be an asset to all-around individuals. Aitken was a longtime coach of the Clippers and a commissioner for the RMFL for several years. Up for the award this year is Matt Zurba.

The Parker Guy Memorial Award is given to a player in grade 11 or 12 and this award exemplifies character through involvement in football. This year's nominee for the Clippers is Garrett Thompson.
