The Everett High School football team, champion of the Greater Boston League, will play Masconomet Regional in a semifinal playoff game Tuesday, with the winner advancing to the Super Bowl at Gillette Stadium.

Coach John DiBiaso and his staff will be getting a look at Masconsomet in the Chieftains’ Thanksgiving game against North Andover. Everett is not playing on the holiday.

Masconomet (8-2) stormed to the Cape Ann/Northeastern Conference Tier 1 title, averaging nearly 40 points a game in wins over Peabody, Lynn English, Lynn Classical, and Revere. Masconomet’s two losses were to Lowell (21-3) and Beverly (30-14).

“We’re excited about the matchup,” said DiBiaso. “We’re just taking one day a time, trying to having a good week and getting ready for next Tuesday. I know that Masco’s coach [Jim Pugh] has been there for quite a few years and he does a good job and I know Gavin Monagle, who used to coach at Savio, does a good job as well. I;m sure they’re going to be ready.”

TIDE NOTEBOOK

Nine members of the Greater Boston League champion Everett High football team were named to the GBL All-Star team. The honorees are Jakarrie Washington, Jalen Felix, Gilly DeSouza, John Montelus, Mike Ottersberg, Patrick Sullivan, Jeff Soulouque, Marc Fils-Aime, and Omar Graciano.

Washington was selected as the Greater Boston League Player of the Year. He succeeds All-Scholastic quarterback Jonathan DiBiaso, who received the award the past two seasons.

Former EHS center Nick Stanfield, who was the starting center for the Framingham State College football team this season, was named the New England Football Conference Rookie of the Year. Stanfield was a major contributor to the success of the FSC Rams, who won the NEFC title before being ousted in the first round of the NCAA playoffs.
