Abington Heights and Lakeland will be the high school teams with the most players on the County team for the 79th annual Dream Game, according to rosters released by Scranton Lions Club official Nick Parise Friday, June 28.
The Comets and Chiefs each have five players while Lackawanna Trail has three on the County team, which will be coached by Riverside’s Evan Prall. Players from Riverside, Old Forge, Valley View, Mid Valley, Western Wayne, Carbondale and Honesdale also will be part of the County team for the July 31 game at Scranton Memorial Stadium.
Scranton Prep joins Scranton, Delaware Valley and Dunmore in providing at least five players for the City team, which will be coached by North Pocono’s Greg Dolhon. West Scranton, North Pocono, Montrose, Wallenpaupack, Holy Cross and Susquehanna also supply City players for the game, which matches recent graduates from Lackawanna Football Conference teams.
The Scranton Lions Club sponsors the game. The current rosters reflect at least one set of changes based on availability of players following the original selections. Parise said the rosters will continue to go through adjustments.
