The Steel Valley football team was rewarded after winning a second WPIAL title in three years, as two Ironmen were selected to the Class 2A Pennsylvania Football Writers all-state team Thursday.

Senior Kam Williams was picked as a running back, and senior Todd Hill earned a second all-state selection at linebacker.

Williams ran for 2,020 yards and 22 touchdowns on 234 carries and also added 23 catches for 404 yards.

Hill, also a running back, ran for 1,754 yards and 30 scores on 160 carries. He averaged 11 yards per carry.

Other WPIAL products who were named to the team included Shady Side Academy senior quarterback Skyy Moore, Avonworth senior quarterback Derek Johncour, McGuffey senior running back Christian Clutter and Washington senior defensive back Daniel Walker.

Moore ran and passed for more than 1,000 yards for the second straight season, the first WPIAL player to accomplish the feat.

He completed 40 of 75 passes for 1,275 yards and 16 touchdowns and ran for 1,049 yards and 19 scores.

Ligonier Valley senior quarterback John Caldwell and senior wide receiver Aaron Tutino also were picked to the all-state team.

One of the nation’s top junior recruits, Southern Columbia’s Julian Fleming, was named the Class 2A Player of the Year. Wilmington’s Brandon Phillian was named the Class 2A Coach of the Year.
