LOCK HAVEN, Pa. – Five former District 9 and District 10 standouts earned Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Western Division All-Conference accolades in football, the conference announced.

There was one first-teamer on both the offense and defensive side of the ball, Slippery Rock wide receiver Henry Litwin (Conneaut) and IUP linebacker Malachi Newell (Farrell).

Litwin leads all players in the PSAC with 999 receiving yards and 13 touchdown catches and will have a shot at his second straight 1,000-yard season. He has already set SRU career records for catches (217) and touchdown receptions (42) and needs 34 yards this week to become the program’s all-time leader in yardage as well.

Newell finished with 67 tackles, eight of which went for a loss.

A pair of Edinboro offensive lineman and District 9 alum garnered second-team honors, Ridgway grad Justin Kasmierski and former DuBois standout Ryan Pasternak.

Pasternak earned his second all-conference selection while Kasmierski was selected for the first time. The duo anchored an offensive line that helped the Scots average 254.5 yards per game and 4.2 yards per play.

IUP’s Jaheim Howard, a Cathedral Prep graduate, was a second-team pick on defense.

Howard finished with 33 tackles, two interceptions and two pass breakups.
