Clairton's Deismon Green won the first Mr. PA Football small school award as selected by fans, and apparently some media and coaches. Hopewell's Rushel Shell, recently named the country's No. 11 recruit for 2012 by MaxPreps/CBS Sports, won the big school award.
Washington's Julien Anderson and South Fayette's Christian Brumbaugh were two of five finalists for the small school award.
Green, a Texas Tech recruit, led Clairton to a wild comeback in the PIAA Class A championship game - the second consecutive state title for the Bears. As a quarterback, Green accounted for 43 touchdowns and was equally effective at defensive end, where he had 14 sacks. (The guess here is he had to have more than 14 sacks.)
Shell, who has offers from most major colleges, has rushed for 6,766 yards and should break the WPIAL all-time rushing mark established by Fort Cherry's Mike Vernillo in 1999. Follow me on Twitter. http://twitter.com/#
