A total of five schools from District 10 and District 9 – Wilmington, Farrell, Karns City, Brookville and Central Clarion County all had multiple players voted to the Pa. Football News Coaches All-State team in Class 2A.

Wilmington’s Darren Miller (fullback), Weston Phanco (guard), Jake Chimiak (offensive tackle) and Caelan Bender (safety) were all first team, as were Brookville’s Elliot Park (long snapper) and Nathan Taylor (punter), Central Clarion County’s Ethan Burford (receiver), Cal German (QB) and Cutter Boggess (defensive athlete), Karns City’s Luke Garing (nose guard) and Kaden Scherer (kick/punt retuner), as well as Farrell’s Gary Satterwhite (center).

Named to the second team were Wilmington’s Ethan Susen (running back), Connor Vass-Gal (offensive tackle) and Miller (outside linebacker), Brookville’s Jack Krug (QB) and Kyle MacBeth (cornerback), Farrell’s Anthony Stallworth (running back) and Taidon Strickland (middle linebacker), Karns City’s Nate Waltman (tight end) and Central Clarion County’s Beau Verdill (punter).

Wilmington beat Farrell three times – twice coming down to the final possession, including the D-10 title game, on its way to the state championship game. That run also included a win over Karns City, which avenged a regular season loss to Brookville for the D-9 crown.
