Note: Pennsylvania Football News and committee make our annual selections based partially upon head coaches' nominations, scouting services input, contributor input, media input, and our own personal observations. We have relied upon the MaxPreps stats as a guide and we also use our own Keystone Club. (It helps if coaches complete the total information on the roster such as height, weight, position, grad year.) We do want to reiterate, it is hard to include a player whose own coach doesn't take the time to nominate him.

Unfortunately, there are still some head coaches who choose to not nominate their players nor use MaxPreps. Thus, some excellent players may have been inadvertently overlooked.,

We have named three teams and an honorable mention for each classification.  We did not get enough nominations for the selection of a 'Special Teams' category.

PFN continues to honor our athletes. We encourage all head football coaches to use MaxPreps. If you don't promote PA high school football, who will? We encourage all players selected to include this honor in their college media guide information.  Check player stats at
