As a coach, the Clairton native compiled a 107-131-4 record. He holds the position of executive manager in the PSFCA and has been an organizer of the Pennsylvania East/West All-Star Game.

DeMarco, who coached Windber from 1985-2010, had a 192-95-5 record and won five District 5 titles. His teams won 49 consecutive games in 1997-2003. Frew coached Delone Catholic from 1979-2006. He won six District 3 titles and compiled a 220-101-3 record.

Jackson, who coached 27 seasons at Dallas through 2011, won the PIAA Class AA title in 1993. His career record was 231-76-3.

Janocko, who has coached Clearfield since 1985, has a 216-97-3 record along with 10 titles in District 9.

Scholarship recipients
