The Wyoming Valley Conference was shut out of the all-state selections Thursday as the Pennsylvania Sports Writers All-State football teams were announced for Class 3A and Class 4A.


The Lackawanna Conference didn't fare much better, landing a total of three players on the teams.


Abington Heights senior linebacker Jerry Langan made the 3A team. Delaware Valley senior quarterback Bryan Schor and Scranton senior Karlon Quiller were named to the 4A squad. Quiller, who played receiver and defensive back for the Knights, was selected as a defensive specialist.


The selection of the all-state teams are overseen by sports writers who cover high school football around the commonwealth. Players were nominated in all four classifications, and then a statewide ballot was released affording all writers an opportunity to cast votes.


All-state teams for Classes A and 2A were released Wednesday. The WVC finished with a total of three all-state players. The Lackawanna Conference had eight.


The top players from both classifications were also announced.


Days removed from leading their respective programs to state championships, dual-threat quarterbacks Mack Leftwich and Damion Terry have won honors for standout senior seasons.


Leftwich, North Allegheny's engaging signal-caller, was tabbed Class 4A Player of the Year. Terry won top player honors at Class 3A after helping Erie Cathedral Prep take home a title last week in Hershey.


Now a two-time selection, Leftwich polished off a brilliant season with three touchdowns Saturday as the Tigers downed Coatesville 63-28 in the Class 4A finale at Hersheypark Stadium.


Boasting a 30-1 career record as a starter, Leftwich threw for more than 3,330 yards this season with 45 touchdown passes and just four interceptions, steering Art Walker's Tigers to their third straight WPIAL title and second state title in three seasons. The Texas-El Paso recruit was 16-of-20 passing for 199 yards in Hershey.


Terry last week rallied the District 10 Ramblers to their second PIAA crown. Exceeding all expectations — and there were plenty — the 6-4, 220-pound Michigan State recruit rewrote both school and District 10 record books during Prep's 15-0 campaign.


Terry added a Class 3A championship-best 317 passing yards last Friday as the nationally-ranked Ramblers tripped defending champ Archbishop Wood 24-14.


Among the nation's top prospects at his position, Terry finished the season with 3,599 passing yards and 50 touchdowns, two shy of the state's all-time single-season mark.
