Clearfield’s Janocko Tabbed as Top in 4A by PaFootballNews.com; 11 D9 Players Earn All-State in 2A, 4A

CENTRE HALL, Pa. – Clearfield head coach Tim Janocko was chosen as the inaugural PaFootballNews.com Coach’s Select All-State Class 4A Coach of the Year, while 11 District 9 players earned All-State honors in either Class 2A or Class 4A.

Janocko guided the Bison to the District 6-9 title with an unbeaten record before losing to eventual state champion Erie Cathedral Prep in the opening round of the PIAA Playoffs.

Six of Janocko’s players were chosen as All-State in Class 4A, including three first-team selections and three second-team choices.

The first-team selections from Clearfield were fullback Brett Zattoni, slot Taye Lynch and guard Quinten Bloom. The second-team choices were quarterback Isaac Rumery, wide receiver Jake Lezzer and outside linebacker Oliver Billotte.

Joining those six in being honored as All-State in Class 4A was DuBois’ tight end Chase Husted, a first-team selection.

Four District 9 players were selected in Class 2A with Clarion’s Sam Minich (Slot) and Moniteau’s James Parenti (guard) tabbed as first-team players and Brookville’s Bryan Dworek and Cabe Park (both wide receivers) named to the second team.

For Rumery, Bloom, Dworek and Park it was the second All-State honor for each, as they were all chosen to the Pennsylvania Football Writers team as well.

PaFootballNews.com asked every team’s head coach across the state to submit nominations for their class and others if they wished. Over 700 players were nominated across the six classifications. Once compiled, the ballots went back out and nearly 200 coaches voted on the 2018 All-State teams. The website tried to incorporate an original offense/defense scheme for each team with a first team and a second team. Some adjustments were necessary due to the number of nominations at some positions. Any ties were broken by stats and film review by the website’s staff.

In addition to the Class 2A and 4A teams, the Class 6A team was also announced Thursday and can be viewed on PaFootballnews.com. The 11 selections Thursday bring the total number of PaFootballNews.com All-State choices from District 9 to 15 after four were chosen in Class 1A Wednesday. Wednesday also saw the naming of the Class 3A and Class 5A teams, which can also be viewed on PaFootballNews.com.
