SCHUYLKILL HAVEN (May 6) – First-year Panther Valley head coach Matt Davis is the North coach and Williams Valley head coach Tim Savage is the South coach in the Schuylkill County Football Coaches Association All-Star Game, Saturday, May 30, kicking off at 6 p.m., at Rotary Field, Schuylkill Haven. Originally the game was scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 26, but was postponed twice because of inclement weather before being moved to this spring, with the 2015 game returning to Thanksgiving Day Eve, Wednesday, Nov. 25.

At halftime the SCFCA Hall of Fame Class of 2014 will be inducted comprised of Tom Bonner, Panther Valley; the late Barry Hackenberg, North Schuylkill; Kevin Keating, Pottsville; and the late Pat Droskinis, Cass Township .

Bonner compiled a 43-18 record in five seasons at Panther Valley and a 26-19 record in four seasons at Tamaqua for a career total of 69-37. With the Panthers he won one District 11 Class A title, had two Eastern Conference runners-up and one EC semifinalist; with the Blue Raiders he had one EC runner-up.

Hackenberg compiled a 27-25-2 record in five seasons at North Schuylkill and an 18-22-4 record in five seasons at Jim Thorpe for a career record of 45-47-2. He later became a key member of the staff at Marian, where he helped coach his sons Eric and J.D., who is now an assistant for the Colts.

Keating coached a total of 24 seasons at Pottsville in two terms, becoming the all-time winningest coach for the Crimson Tide with a 166-110-7 record and is a past president of the SCFCA. He coached the Tide to a pair of PIAA Class AAA Eastern championships, three District 11 championships and one Eastern Conference championships.

Droskinis is best known as head coach of the legendary “undefeated, untied and un-scored upon” 1957 Cass Township team. That year the Condors finished 10-0 and were Eastern Conference co-champions when the title game was cancelled because of a flu epidemic.

In 1958, the Condors had a 7-1 record, allowing just one touchdown that season in a 6-0 loss to Mahoney Township. Droskinis went on to coach at Schuylkill Haven, Pottsville and Minersville.

With the addition of Lehighton to the Anthracite Football League, the Indians will participate on the North team with players from Jim Thorpe, Mahanoy Area, Marian, North Schuylkill, Panther Valley, Shenandoah Valley and Tamaqua. Participating on the South team are players from Blue Mountain, Minersville, Nativity, Pine Grove, Pottsville , Schuylkill Haven, Tri-Valley and Williams Valley.
