22 WPIAL football players selected for PSFCA East-West Game

Wednesday, February 19, 2020 | 8:00 AM

Two WPIAL quarterbacks, Seneca Valley’s Gabe Lawson and Baldwin’s Mason Stahl, were chosen to lead the West all-stars in the PSFCA East-West Game on Memorial Day weekend.

They were among 22 WPIAL players selected for the annual all-star event run by the state coaches association. Rosters were announced Wednesday.

The game is May 24 at Landis Field in Harrisburg, one day before the Big 33 Football Classic is played at the same stadium. Kickoff is 2 p.m.

This is the first time the two all-star games are scheduled for the same site.

Along with Lawson and Stahl, the 36-player West roster includes: McKeesport’s Devari Robinson; North Allegheny’s Luke Colella, Ben Grafton and Amosis Porter Jr.; Central Valley’s Michael Barbuto; Thomas Jefferson’s Daniel Deabner and Shane Stump; Montour’s George Padezanin; Central Catholic’s A’maar Allen and A’meer Allen; Woodland Hills’ Jeremie Thomas and Rodney Stubbs; Seneca Valley’s Kevin Meeder and Evan Smith; Bethel Park’s Brandon Cole and Jehvonn Lewis; Pine-Richland’s Trent Miller; Franklin Regional’s Justin Johns; East Allegheny’s Tyler Padezan; and Penn Hills’ Dylan Bennett.

Latrobe coach Jason Marucco is a West assistant.

The all-star game was played all but one year since its creation in 2001. It has switched sites numerous times, including a 2016 stop at Cupples Stadium on the South Side, but was played at Altoona’s Mansion Park Stadium the past three years.

The East leads the all-time series 10-8, but the West has won four of the past five.
