Wednesday, December 1, 2021 | 11:33 PM

Elizabeth Forward’s defense allowed only 28 points combined in six conference games, a dominance that led Interstate coaches to name senior DaVontay Brownfield as the conference’s top defensive player.

In all, 10 Elizabeth Forward players earned first-team all-conference honors. The Warriors finished 6-0 in the WPIAL Class 3A conference.

Southmoreland quarterback Anthony Govern was voted as the top offensive player. The senior passed for 1,189 yards and 10 touchdowns and also rushed for 734 yards and 16 scores.

The team was chosen by conference coaches.
