    Is Cody Scherer from lehighton supposed to be on here?

      Doesn’t look that way. Good QB though… Leighton is well represented. Great job all.

        Yeah I was confused about that. Thought he should have got on easily. Wasn’t sure if that was a spelling error by the lehighton kid on honorable mention. Great season for him and the Indians!

          Well, Didn’t see any name close to his at QB. Tough QB class to compete in. Not as easy as you thought but great year none the less.
