The accolades continued to roll in for Redbank Valley football players and coach Blane Gold on Wednesday. Just a day after Gold was named the Pennsylvania Football Writers’ 1A Co-Coach of the Year, he earned the same distinction on the PAFootballNews.com Coaches Select 1A All-State Team.

Gold was joined by 15 District 9 and District 10 players on the 1A team, including seven from the state runner-up Bulldogs. Five players from D-10 champion Reynolds were on the team, along with one each from Curwensville, Elk County Catholic and Keystone.

PIAA Class 1A champion Bishop Guilfoyle had eight players earn all-state nods, including Player of the Year Karson Kiesewetter. Head Coach Justin Wheeler was Co-Coach of the Year.

Representing the District 9 champion Bulldogs on the first team were Slot/HB Tate Minich, returner Ashton Kahie, defensive end Joe Mansfield and cornerback Marquese Gardlock. Earning second-team nods were wide receiver Chris Marshall, who was the D9and10Sports.com District 9 Player of the Year, long snapper Gunner Mangiantini and nose guard Kolby Barrett.

           

For District 10 champion Reynolds, which lost to Northern Bedford in the opening round of the PIAA playoffs, running back Jalen Wagner and nose guard Gaven Aley were selected to the first team. Offensive linemen Mitchell Mason (guard) and Nate Leksell (tackle) and cornerback Clayton Rhoades were named to the second team.

ECC center Jake Parrish and Keystone defensive athlete Zander McHenry were first-team selections, while Curwensville kicker Jake Mullins, who was the D9and10Sports.com Special Teams Player of the Year, was second team.
