The Altoona Mirror

Hollidaysburg's Matt Barton recently was selected to the first-team of the WPIAL Greater Allegheny Conference football squad.

Barton, a senior, was picked to the top squad as a defensive lineman. He also made it on the second team as a center, one of seven Golden Tigers so recognized.

Altoona had six of its players named to the second team in the WPIAL's Foothills Conference. Both the Tigers and Mountain Lions qualified for the playoffs.

In addition to Barton, Hollidaysburg's Pat Ollinger (offensive tackle, defensive lineman) and Brian Urban (quarterback, defensive back) were named to the Greater Allegheny second team at two positions. Guard Reid Brinkhoff and place-kicker Eric Miller rounded out the list of Golden Tigers second-team all-conference picks.

Offensive tackle, Brandon Bernazzoli , wide receiver Jake Diviney, defensive end Kevin Givens, punter Josh Kutz, defensive lineman Austin Rosenberry and tight end Alois Steinbugl garnered first-team all-Foothills honors from Altoona.

In addition, running backs Mante Barnes and Avery Howsare, defensive back Matt Dry, linebacker Markief Knode, quarterback Brennan Luciano, guard Noah Scheinberg and center Damian Smith were named Foothills Conference honorable mention.

Hollidaysburg's Kaleb Springer made Greater Allegheny honorable mention at two positions, tight end and linebacker. Zane Brunner (all-purpose), Blake Davis (receiver), Greg Dinges (defensive line), Eli Hargis (linebacker) and J.T. Ventura (defensive back) joined him on honorable mention from the Tigers.

Franklin Regional had the most Greater Allegheny first-team picks with 10. Gateway ran away with top honors in the Foothills, boasting 12 first-team all-stars.
