The Aylwards, Tewksbury: Johnny, a senior quarterback, was 10 of 11 for 125 yards and a touchdown as the Redmen pummeled Plymouth South, 42-14, for the Division 3 Super Bowl title. His father, Brian, won his first title in 17 years as head coach as Tewksbury capped its first undefeated season since he was a fullback in 1985.
