Another state championship for Archbishop Wood and another postseason plug for senior running back Jarrett McClenton.

Less than two weeks after McClenton drove Archbishop Wood to its third PIAA title in four seasons, the Villanova recruit picked up player of the year honors Monday on the Pa. football writers' Class AAA all-state team.

McClenton, who rushed for 230 yards and four touchdowns in the Vikings' 33-14 triumph over WPIAL power Central Valley on Dec. 12, edged Warriors star Jordan Whitehead for the state's top honor.

McClenton finished the season with 2,191 yards and 254 total points. Wood teammates joining him on the all-state team were senior offensive lineman Ryan Bates and senior linebacker Jake Cooper, both two-time selections and Penn State recruits.

Among the all-state selections were receiver D.J. Moore (Imhotep), tight end Naseir Upshur (Imhotep), offensive lineman Hayden Mahoney (Malvern Prep), defensive lineman Ryan Buchholz (Great Valley), and linebacker Trevor Morris (Malvern Prep).
