York-Adams League coaches select 2022 football all-stars

The York-Adams League has announced its football all-stars for the 2022 season, as voted by the league's coaches.

Each of the league's three divisions selected an Offensive and Defensive Player of the Year, Coach of the Year and all-county first and second teams. A grand total of 99 first-team selections were made, although some multi-dimensional standouts earned two or even three such honors by themselves.

Division champions Central York, New Oxford and Delone Catholic were all well-represented, with runner-up finishers York High, Dover and York Catholic not far behind. But players from all across the league earned recognition for their achievements this fall.

Division I: Offensive Player of the Year Jahiem White had already entrenched himself as the centerpiece of the York High football team, but the senior running back and West Virginia commit outdid himself this season. In only nine games, he rushed for 1,570 yards, added 370 receiving yards and scored 33 total touchdowns for the Bearcats. On Oct. 8 against Dallastown alone, White had 417 yards and six scores on the ground, plus a seventh TD via pick-six. White also earned first-team honors as an outside linebacker and return man.

Spring Grove's Andrew Osmun was also the center of attention whenever he took the field. The two-way senior stalwart played quarterback, running back and wide receiver on offense and was a first-team selection as an athlete. But the Fordham commit was also the Division I Defensive Player of the Year as a safety, recording 82 tackles, a sack and an interception in 10 games for the Rockets.

Central York, meanwhile, four-peated as division champions with its totality of talent. Gerry Yonchiuk earned Coach of the Year after leading his team to a 9-1 record, and the Panthers' senior class finished four seasons without losing a division game. Central York landed 11 players on the Division I first team and five more on the second team, meaning nearly the entire starting lineup was all-county caliber.

The Panthers host York High on Friday in a rematch of the regular-season finale two weeks ago. Central York won that game, 43-38, to secure the division title.

Division II: New Oxford steamrolled its way to the title, but even the Colonials couldn't contain York Suburban senior running back Mikey Bentivegna, whose historic season earned him Offensive Player of the Year honors. He ran for a school-record 1,873 yards and 26 touchdowns in the regular season and scored 31 times in total (three receiving, two on returns). He was also selected as a first-team safety and kick returner. And in leading the Trojans last Friday to their first playoff victory since 1986, Bentivegna rushed for 382 yards and six touchdowns on only 13 carries against Donegal.

New Oxford's Brittyn Eakins tallied 11 sacks and was a game-wrecker all season at defensive end, earning him Defensive Player of the Year. The senior led a Colonials defense that surrendered just 14.4 points per game this season, the lowest in the York-Adams League. He was also a second-team selection as a bruising running back. New Oxford (8-2) hosts Northern York in the Class 5A playoffs on Friday.

Dover's Wayne Snelbaker took home Coach of the Year after leading the Eagles to an 8-2 record, a remarkable turnaround from 1-9 last season and 1-5 in 2020. The team had six players earn a total of nine first-team selections, including RB/S/P Gavin Mullins, WR/CB Thomas Smyser and QB Aric Campbell. Dover made districts for the first time in nine years and won its second-ever playoff game last Friday; the Eagles visit unbeaten Exeter Township this weekend.

Division III: This was almost a clean sweep for Delone Catholic, which went unbeaten in division play for the third time in four seasons. The Squires had Co-Offensive Player of the Year Brady Dettinburn, Defensive Player of the Year Ryder Noel, Coach of the Year Corey Zortman and 18 first-team selections (by 11 different players).

Dettinburn rushed for 1,030 yards and 11 touchdowns in the regular season — 1,145 and 12 overall, counting last week's playoff loss to Trinity — to lead Delone's ground attack. Noel was a first-team running back himself but made just as much of an impact as a safety and return man, earning top honors for all three phases. The Squires' other first-team selections were Noah Crawford (TE), J.D. Seig (OT/DE), Alex Timmins (OG/DE), Won Stewart (OG/DT), Trent Giraffa (C/OLB), Josh Kramer (DT), Dominic Giraffa (ILB), Gage Ford (CB) and Gage Zimmerman (CB).

York Tech senior running back Anthony Torres earned Co-Offensive Player of the Year honors despite his team finishing winless in the division and 1-9 overall. Torres amassed a league-high 1,933 yards and scored 14 touchdowns for the Spartans.
