Cornell earned a share of the Big Seven title and a home playoff game for only the second time in school history, accomplishments that shaped all-conference voting.

As a result, Raiders quarterback Zaier Harrison was named as the conference’s offensive MVP and Ed Dawson was named the top coach in a vote of coaches. Laurel teammates Dom Wade and Mitch Miles also earned individual awards in the WPIAL Class A conference.

Harrison, Wade and Miles were among seven players who earned first-team honors on both sides of the football.
