Fontanzza two-way
region all-star for
3rd straight year

Not only was he the Player of the Year, but Oil City's Mario Fontanazza was a two-way region all-star for three straight years.

The 6-0, 290-pound lineman is the first Oiler to accomplish that, going back to the days when regions were called sections. There have been others who were two-time two-way all-stars, the last lineman being Mike Moon in 2010-11.

What's more, Fontanazza is the third consecutive Oil City player to win the Player of the Year award. Noah Petro won it last season and Christian Cole the year before.

Other first team repeaters were Oil City's Cameron Russell, who made it as an all-purpose back in 2019; Holden Stahl (DB) and junior Brayden Crocker (LB) and Franklin's Cade Adams (WR). 

 

Crocker (TE) and A.J. Angros (OL) on offense, and Dakota Cole (DB) on defense moved up from the second team.

 

Adams had his best season as a sophomore, but only made second team in 2018. He didn't have all-state QB Ian Haynes throwing him the ball this year, and his receiving stats showed the effects -- he didn't have a TD reception.

 

But he played a lot at running back and in the secondary in an effort to add stabilty to a very young Franklin team.
