Meanwhile, Clarion-Limestone’s Austin Newcomb and Ben Smith were selected to the Class 1A team.

Cole, the Oilers 3,000-yard rusher, was a first-team selection at running back with Fontanazza earning second-team honors at defensive tackle.

Newcomb was a first-team choice at running back with Smith earning second-team honors at offensive guard.

PAFootballNews.com asked every team’s head coach across the state to submit nominations for their class and others if they wished. Over 700 players were nominated across the six classifications. Once compiled, the ballots went back out and nearly 200 coaches voted on the 2018 All-State teams. The website tried to incorporate an original offense/defense scheme for each team with a first team and a second team. Some adjustments were necessary due to the number of nominations at some positions. Any ties were broken by stats and film review by the website’s staff.

In addition to Class 1A, Class 3A and Class 5A were announced Wednesday. The Class 2A, 4A and 6A teams will be released Thursday. District 9 does not have a Class 6A team.
