Hail, Warwick.

The Warriors earned another stash of postseason awards on Sunday, when four Warwick standouts earned Pennsylvania Football News Coaches Select All-State Class 5A honors.

Senior QB Joey McCracken, senior WR Caleb Schmitz and senior O-tackle Nolan Rucci picked up first-team honors, while senior TE Thatcher Miller garnered a second-team spot.

Ten Lancaster-Lebanon League players in all earned slots on the PFN Class 5A list, including a trio of Ephrata standouts: Senior LB Owen Morrongiello, sophomore DB Andre Weidman and senior punter Brock Boyer all picked up first-team kudos.

Weidman was named as a defensive athlete.

Meanwhile, Lebanon senior WR Alex Rufe, and Elizabethtown teammates Billy McNitt, a senior long-snapper, and senior Bobby Walters, a ball-hawker LB, earned second-team honors.

Rufe was named as a slot-back, while Walters was tabbed as a defensive athlete.

More than 200 coaches from across the state nominated and then voted for the PFN All-State teams for all six classifications. Also Sunday, Lampeter-Strasburg senior QB Sean McTaggart was named Class 4A Player of the Year.

Rucci (Section 2 Offensive Lineman of the Year, Outstanding Lineman of the year; Pennsylvania Football Writers All-State; Wisconsin recruit), McCracken (75 of 121 for 1,312 yards, 11 TD; Section 2 Offensive Back of the Year; Section 2 Lions Club Player of the Year; PFW All-State) and Schmitz (43 receptions for 788 yards, 18.3 avg., 6 TD; Section 2 Wide Receiver of the Year, Outstanding Back of the Year, Defensive Back of the Year; PFW All-State; Cincinnati recruit) were all repeat PFN All-State selections. Miller (25 catches for 414 yards, 16.6 avg., 6 TD; PFW All-State) gave Warwick a four-pack of honorees.

Boyer (38.8 average on 25 punts, 3 downed inside the 20), Morrongiello (82 tackles, 9.5 hits for losses, 4 QB hurries, 2 fumble recoveries) and Weidman (67 tackles, 5.5 sticks for losses, 1 sack, 3 INT, 2 pass breakups, 3 forced fumbles) helped Ephrata register its second winning season in a row.

McNitt and Walters (117 tackles, 7 stops for losses, 2 QB hurries, 4 fumble recoveries, 2 forced fumbles) were both PFW All-State picks, as was Rufe (24 receptions for 569 yards, 23.7 avg., 6 TD; 288 passing yards, 242 rushing yards, 8 total TD; Section 3 Wide Receiver of the Year).
