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.
