Pine Richland senior quarterback, Ryan Palmieri who accounted for four touchdowns in leading the Rams to a 28-14 win over Imhotep Charter in the PIAA Class 5A championship game, was named the state’s Class 5A player of the year.

Joining Palmieri on the all-state team were teammates — junior offensive lineman Ryan Cory and senior linebacker Max Heckert.
Palmieri, ran for two TDs, threw for another and also returned an interception for a score in the PIAA final. He finished the year with 1,929 rushing yards and 24 touchdowns and also passed for 1,104 yards and 10 more scores. Cory helped the Rams average more than 200 rushing yards behind a strong offensive line. Heckert was a first-team all-conference selection at inside linebacker after making a program-record 162 tackles.

Penn Trafford senior offensive lineman Joe Enick, Bethel Park senior linebacker Gavin Moul and Gateway senior defensive back Dallas Harper also were selected to the Class 5A all-state team.

Enick, a Central Michigan recruit, received the Bill Fralic Award as the top lineman in the WPIAL.

Moul, who is headed to Delaware, helped anchor a defense that allowed less than 16 points per game.

Harper, a Youngstown State commit, led the Gateway defense with seven interceptions, one he returned for a touchdown. He also had 30 tackles and two forced fumbles.
