The 2010 Anthracite Football League released its list of All-League All-Stars recently and plenty of locals were representing their schools with lauds for their accomplishments on the field this past season.

On the First Team of the selections, there were four offensive standouts and one defensive from the TIMES NEWS area. Meanwhile, the area had three second teamers for offense and four defensive lead players.

The Olympians led the way with two first-teamers and four second team recipients. Tamaqua had two on each list, while PV had a first team selection and Marian had a second teamer.

The following is a list of all recipients of the kudos for the end of the year.
