There were nine District 9 football players named to the 2022 PFN Coaches Class 1A All-Star team. Two made the All-State first team and seven made the second team. Seven were offensive all-stars and two broke into the all-state defensive line-up.
Port Allegany, a state semi-finalist, placed three on the all-state roster, while Brockway and Redbank Valley garnered two each. District 9 Class A football has improved the past couple of years and now can compete with the best in the state. In fact, six of the nineteen second team offensive all-stars are from District 9.
Making first team were Tyler Albright of the Keystone Panthers at the slot back/H back position and Port Allegany’s Blaine Moses at at the middle linebacker position. Albright had 32 catches for 590 yards and 10 TDs. He also ran the ball 100 times, gaining 716 yards and scoring a handful of touchdowns. Moses has a nose for the ball and was all over the field on defense. He led the Gators in tackles with 150.
QB Danny McGarry (Curwensville), WR Alex Carlson (Brockway), SB/HB Tate Minich (Redbank Valley), Ath. Noah Archer (Port Allegany), OG Reese Yahner (Brockway), LS Carsen Rupp (Redbank Valley), and DE Miska Young (Port Allegany) were all named by the coaches to the all-state second team.
