WPIAL lands 2 players on Class 4A boys basketball all-state team
Thursday, April 30, 2020 | 12:00 AM
Highlands’ Johnny Crise and Central Valley’s Isiah Warfield will play different sports in college, but right now they’re both all-state basketball players.
The two WPIAL stars were selected all-state in Class 4A on Thursday in a vote of Pennsylvania sports writers. Warfield was named to the second team and Crise made third team.
The two seniors were the only WPIAL athletes picked.
Warfield, a 6-foot-5 guard and 21-point scorer, signed to play Division I basketball at Liberty. Crise, a 6-6 forward who averaged 15 points, passed up college basketball offers and committed to Penn State football as a preferred walk-on.
The six all-state teams are being announced one per day this week, starting Monday with Class A and ending Saturday with Class 6A.
