DiBiasos share the spotlight

The son owns virtually every state high school passing record. The father is one of the most successful coaches in state high school history. Everett’s Jonathan and John DiBiaso will share the spotlight Monday as the Jack Grinold Eastern Massachusetts Chapter of the National Football Foundation holds its annual awards dinner at Lombardo’s in Randolph.

Jonathan DiBiaso, who threw a state-record 103 career touchdown passes, is one of 34 who will be recognized for their accomplishments on the field and in the classroom. John will receive the Ed Schluntz Contributions to Amateur Football Award.

John DiBiaso’s teams have won 10 Eastern Mass. Super Bowls, and last season Everett finished 13-0 and won the Division 1A title. He has been head coach at Everett for 20 years, compiling a 198-21 record. DiBiaso has also coached at St. Patrick’s High School in Watertown and Weston.

The Ron Burton Distinguished American Award will be presented to Curry College football coach Skip Bandini. Under Bandini, Curry is 52-16 and has won two New England Football Conference championships. Off the field, Bandini is the founder of MasterSports, a nonprofit corporation that provides scholarships to deserving high school football players.

Bentley University quarterback Bryant Johnson is the winner of the inaugural Jack Daly Award for Academics, Citizenship, and Football. Johnson has started every game the last three years and holds the school’s career completion percentage record and ranks in the top three in all major passing categories. He’s a master’s degree candidate in business administration and was an academic all-district selection last fall. He also is a Special Olympics volunteer.
