Upper St. Clair’s Aidan Besselman and Mark Banbury earned first-team honors on both sides of the ball, helping the Panthers claim 10 spots on the Allegheny Six all-conference team.

Besselman, a wide receiver and defensive back, and Banbury, a two-way lineman, helped Upper St. Clair reach the WPIAL Class 5A finals. Also earning two-way honors were Peters Township’s Brendan McCullough and Bethel Park’s Aidan Currie.

The team is selected by conference coaches.
