Bangor High School’s Trevor DeLaite was one of eight semifinalists nominated for the Travis Roy Award on Friday by the Maine Class A Hockey Coaches Association.

The finalists for the award will be announced next week, and the winner will named at the association’s All-State banquet on March 13 at the Ramada Inn in Lewiston.

The award is given to state’s top senior Class A hockey player.

DeLaite is one of four Class A North nominees and is joined by Lewiston’s Kyle Morin, St. Dominic Academy of Auburn’s Austin Roy and Edward Little of Auburn’s Ben Steele.

The Class A South nominees are Scarborough’s Matt Caron, Biddeford’s Kerry Crepeau, Cheverus of Portland’s Luke Trickey and Thornton Academy of Saco’s Walsh Troiani-Gagner.

The award is named for Travis Roy, a former Yarmouth resident and North Yarmouth Academy standout who was paralyzed on his first shift in his first game at Boston University when he crashed into the boards. He lives and works in Boston and is a motivational speaker who works with a charity named for him.

The charity raises money and supplies grants for research and medical equipment for people who suffer from spinal cord injuries.
