The South Fayette offense was run like a well-oiled machine for much of the 2018 season.

Three cogs who kept the engine running were honored Thursday with selection to the Class 4A 2018 Pennsylvania Football Writers all-state team.

Senior quarterback Jamie Diven, senior wide receiver Mike Trimbur and senior kicker Ryan Coe all were selected after helping the Lions capture the WPIAL Class 4A title.

Diven, in his first year under center for the Lions, completed 189 of 312 passes for 3,211 yards and 45 touchdowns.

Trimbur, a Cornell recruit, was his top target, grabbing 57 catches for 1,096 yards and 16 scores.

Coe, one of the nation’s top kickers and a Delaware recruit, made 60 extra points and nine field goals.

Thomas Jefferson, the WPIAL runner-up, also had two players selected to the Class 4A all-state team — senior running back Max Shaw and junior wide receiver Dan Deabner.

Shaw ran for 1,971 yards and 35 touchdowns on 214 carries, while Deabner caught 59 passes for 1,365 yards and 21 scores.

After winning the PIAA title, Cathedral Prep’s Billy Lucas and Mike Mischler were named the Class 4A Player and Coach of the Year, respectively.
