L-L Stars Gain Recognition

A couple of L-L League stars gain national and state recognition. 

This week some L-L league athletes receiving recognition on the national and state level.

We start on the diamond, where ESPN released its preseason list of the top prep baseball players from around the country, and seven players from the L-L League made the Pennsylvania list; including Garden Spot's John Armbrust, Warwick's Tyler Morris, and Lancaster Catholic's Chris Mattison.

Armbrust and Mattison will begin their senior seasons on March 23, and will both head to East Stroudsburg University in the fall. While Morris will start his junior year at the Warriors, and has verbally committed to Liberty University.

Other L-L athletes on the list include, Cedar Crest's Dan Black, Hempfield's Shaun Corso, Solanco's Luke Emling, and Cedar Crest's Logan Fullmer.

Clay in State Final
On the gridiron, Lancaster Catholic's Roman Clay was one of the finalists for the second annual PA Mr. Football award. The award handed out in Harrisburg this past weekend, was claimed by Clairton junior running back, Tyler Boyd, in the small division.

Clay is the reigning Eastern Pennsylvania Football small school Player of the Year, after he helped the Crusaders clean house this year, rushing 1,899 yards and scoring 32 touchdowns.
