Eight local football players were selected to 2013 all-state teams released Thursday by the Pennsylvania Football News.

Apollo-Ridge junior Tre Tipton was picked as a first-team defensive back, and Redbank Valley senior Zane Watson was picked as the first-team kicker in Class A. For Tipton, it is the second first-team all-state honor of the year, after he earned that distinction from the Pennsylvania Football Writers' Association.

Also honored on the Class A third team as all-purpose athletes were Apollo-Ridge senior quarterback Jesse Zelonka and West Shamokin junior running back Zac Horner.

In Class AA, Kittanning and Karns City each had a pair of third-team selections.

From the Wildcats, junior Nick Bowers earned the honor at wide receiver, and junior quarterback Braydon Toy was selected as an all-purpose athlete. Karns City is represented by senior defensive lineman Adam Whited and junior linebacker Cody Deal, who was selected with the athlete designation.
