Five players from District 2 have been selected to play in the annual Pennsylvania Football Coaches Association East-West All-Star Game.
Berwick had two players selected — quarterback C.J. Curry and running back/defensive back Dain Kowalski. Coughlin lineman Anthony Khalife, a Colgate recruit, was the other Wyoming Valley Conference standout selected.
The WVC trio will be joined by two players from the Lackawanna Conference — Dunmore lineman Jim McHale and Abington Heights quarterback J.C. Show. McHale will play at Temple in the fall. Show will head to Bucknell, where he will play basketball.
“It’s a good honor for the kids,” Berwick coach George Curry said. “You look at it, there are two games (East-West and Big 33). The top 100 kids in the state that don’t get picked for one get picked for the other. It’s a feather in your cap.”
The East-West Game will be played May 4 at Franklin Regional High School outside of Pittsburgh.
