Zach Cernuto

Southmoreland, sr., QB

Cernuto is a four-year starter who has thrown for 3,731 yards by completing 257 of 493 passes with 34 touchdowns and 31 interceptions. He lost his top receivers from a year ago and will break in a few new ones, including returning tight end Anthony Govern.

Colton Johns

Franklin Regional, sr., RB/QB/LB/DE

Johns is a 6-foot-2, 215-pound all-everything player who will see time at running back and line up at quarterback as well as linebacker and defensive end. Coach Greg Botta called him a master of the game.

Jude Grzywinski

Ligonier Valley, jr., C

Grzywinski has started every game the past two seasons at center. Coach Roger Beitel considered moving him to guard or tackle but was advised by some college coaches to build from the middle. He is drawing interest from Division I schools.

Gamal Marballie

Yough, sr., RB

Marballie was thrust into becoming the Cougars quarterback in 2019 because of an injury. He ran for 708 yards and six touchdowns and completed 108 of 177 passes for 1,334 yards and nine touchdowns. Now, he is back at running back.
