    Wondering on some players you have listed as all conference.

    You left out a kid from montour high school that is listed on all recruiting sites as the top center in the state. With over 10 d-1offers in matt barone.

    You have 2 players from his same high school that he started over as a sophomore. Just surprised you would have these inaccuracies if you want cred for this publication.

    Cory Lauer played 3 or 4 games this year with a cast on due to a broken thumb and still lead the WPIAL in interceptions. Pretty impressive. Good call picking that ball hawk to first team.
