    Great job here. I really enjoyed what you had to say. Keep going because you definitely bring a new voice to this subject. Not many people would say what youve said and still make it interesting. Well, at least Im interested. Cant wait to see more of this from you.

  2. LourdesFan says:

    Why is it you never ever look at Lourdes Regional Football? They have some very talented players there…………um Mike Bastian, Matt Gilger. Take a look at them once, they may surprise you.

    how in the name of vince lombardi does Andrew Shoop of Danville not make this team? he has every school passing record…well over 5,000 yards in just 25 starts…over 50 TD’s…..and on a team that had dropped over 60 passes this past year!! this is horrible!

  4. JoBoo says:

    You guys have to remember that this is “A” and “AA” combined because it is a “Small School Team”. If they wanted to water it down and make every class have its own team I am sure all of the people you wanted on the team would have been but instead this is the best of the best when it comes to Small School (AA and A) teams.

    it amazing to see that west catholic defense didn’t hAve more people on the all eastern Pa team I thought Halem Hayward and Chris Williams were as good as any of the guys who made the team over them..

  6. havens pride says:

    how is mike georgevic not in here for kicker at all? he broke the record for most xp attempts made.

  7. Jack says:

    Jordan Smith is a two time first team all state defensive back and he can’t make your first team all-eastern team? Don’t get it.
