Dravon Henry


RB/DB, 6-0, 181, Sr.

A two-way threat who impacted so many aspects of the game, Henry averaged 12.5 yards per carry, scored a team-high 26 touchdowns while helping anchor a stingy secondary. A four-star recruit, Henry committed to West Virginia as a defensive back.

Terry Swanson


RB/DB, 5-10, 187, Sr.

Swanson led the team in rushing yards (1,704), scored 23 touchdowns and averaged 11.8 yards per carry. Alongside Henry, this Toledo recruit who had more than 4,000 career rushing yards, formed the most statistically prolific backfield in WPIAL history.

Jaleel Fields


OL/DL, 6-2, 287, Sr.

Like Henry and Swanson, Fields was a major component in the Quips' success as they reached the title game again. He led an offensive line that opened holes for the prolific duo and was a force on the defensive line. Field will join Henry next season at West Virginia.

Brett Brumbaugh

South Fayette

QB, 6-4, 195, Jr.

After a strong sophomore season, Brumbaugh exceeded most, if not all, expectations as a junior. He passed for 3,917 yards, a WPIAL single-season record, and 41 touchdowns while leading the Lions to a WPIAL Class AA championship and the school's first PIAA title.

Jordan Whitehead

Central Valley

RB/DB, 6-0, 180, Jr.

Whitehead established himself as one of the most dynamic playmakers in the WPIAL this season, finding a way to impact almost all facets of the game. In addition to his 993 yards of offense, he was a standout safety, kick returner and punt returner.

Lenny Williams


QB/DB, 5-11, 197, Sr.

Statistically, Williams finished his career as the most prolific passer in WPIAL history. His 8,508 yards are a career record, as are his 102 touchdown passes. This season, Williams, a Temple recruit, threw for 2,709 yards and 34 touchdowns.

Tory Delmonico

West Allegheny

RB/LB, 6-2, 203, Sr.

For the second consecutive season, Delmonico was a major piece of an Indians team that won a WPIAL Class AAA title. In addition to compiling 1,157 total yards, he was voted the offensive and defensive player of the year in the rugged Parkway Conference.

Cole Blake

Moon Area

RB, 5-11, 200, Sr.

Blake had a breakout senior season, rushing for 1,766 yards (third-most in the WPIAL), averaged 8.1 yards per carry and scored 21 touchdowns as Moon returned to the WPIAL playoffs for the first time since 2006. He was also a first team all-conference punter.

Chayse Dillon

West Allegheny

RB/DE, 5-11, 190, Jr.

On the heels of a strong sophomore campaign, Dillon continued that work into his junior season. He rushed for a team-high 1,203 yards and averaged 8.8 yards per carry. He was also a key piece in a defense that allowed only two opponents to score 20 or more.

Koltan Kobrys

Fort Cherry

RB/LB, 5-8, 170, Sr.

A known commodity in Class A entering the season, Kobrys had the best season of his high school career. He rushed for 2,262 yards (second-most in the WPIAL), averaged 10.7 yards per carry and scored 29 touchdowns as the Rangers finished 10-2.

Justin Watson

South Fayette

WR, 6-3, 195, Sr.

One of Brumbaugh's favorite targets, Watson and his quarterback helped rewrite the WPIAL record books with an offense that averaged 44.9 points per game this season. Watson had 1,568 receiving yards and 21 touchdowns this season, both team highs.

Grant Fetchet

South Fayette

RB, 5-11, 170, Sr.

Though the Lions were primarily known for their aerial attack, Fetchet was a productive runner who kept defenses honest ... and more. He rushed for more than 1,300 yards -- about 1,000 more than any other South Fayette player -- and 22 touchdowns.

Conner Beck

South Fayette

WR, 6-0, 175, Sr.

While Watson led the team in receiving yards, Beck was a steady presence who led the Lions in receptions (more than 80). He played an integral role in South Fayette's WPIAL Class AA championship victory against Aliquippa, scoring the winning touchdown.

Alex Rowse

Beaver Area

QB, 6-2, 170, Sr.

After splitting time with Austin Ross last season, Rowse emerged as one of the area's top passing threats as a senior. He was fourth in the WPIAL with 2,665 passing yards, and he also threw 40 touchdowns to just five interceptions.

Mallory Claybourne


WR, 6-0, 180, Sr.

In his only season with the Vikings, Claybourne made a large impact. A transfer from Perry, he led the team in receptions (41) and receiving yards (988) while averaging 24.1 yards per catch. Along with Williams, he helped lead an explosive offense in a 12-1 season.

Chandler Kincade


QB, 6-5, 230, Sr.

Considered one of the top quarterbacks in the area, Kincade dealt with injuries for part of his senior season, but he still put up respectable numbers, throwing for 1,130 yards on a struggling Cougars team. Kincade is an Akron commit.

Dan Stratton

Beaver Falls

QB, 6-2, 180, Sr.

On an extremely talented roster, Stratton managed to stand out this season under center. He passed for 1,442 yards and 17 touchdowns as the Tigers finished 9-3 and were ranked throughout the season as one of the best teams in Class AA.

Damian Rawl

Beaver Falls

RB, 5-10, 180, Sr.

Though he shared the backfield later in the season with Kahlil Caracter, Rawl was a productive player on an offense that averaged 38.5 points per game. He scored 14 touchdowns and rushed for more than 1,000 yards for the second consecutive season.

Ricky Zuk

Central Valley

LB, 5-10, 200, Sr.

Zuk was an integral piece on a stout Warriors defense, leading the team in tackles and making first-team All-Parkway Conference as a unanimous selection. With Zuk playing a key role, Central Valley allowed only 7.9 points per game this season.

Preston Johnson

Central Valley

LB/FB, 5-11, 160, Jr.

Another unanimous selection at his position on the All-Parkway Conference first team, Johnson was a player opposing coaches routinely had to game plan against on the end of the defensive line. Johnson also contributed on offense, rushing for 372 yards.

Armand Dellovade

West Allegheny

FB/LB, 5-11, 212, Jr.

A physical force, Dellovade found a way to impact the game on both sides of the ball, particularly on defense, where he was one of the leading tacklers on an Indians team that allowed just 11 points per game. He and Dillon will form a solid one-two punch next year.

Sean Orsini

West Allegheny

OL/LB, 6-3, 220, Jr.

Orsini was a first-team All-Parkway selection on defense, where he and his Indians teammates routinely neutralized high-scoring offenses. He was also a star on an offensive line that paved the way for two players who rushed for more than 800 yards.
