Here are the 2021 LFC Division IV All-Stars presented by Motorworld. The list is compiled by feedback from the division coaches and NPF Staff.

OFFENSE PLAYER OF THE YEAR
James Sobol, Jr. – Old Forge
Sobol was able to lead an Old Forge offense that was one of most efficient in the area in both running and passing the football. The junior ran for 533 yards (3rd most of any QB in District 2) and 9 touchdowns while completing 66% of his passes for 1,717 yards (5th in District 2) and 22 touchdowns (3rd in District 2). Sobol was the main offensive weapon for the Blue Devils helping them to a division and district title.

 

 

DEFENSE PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Nick Rasmus, Sr. – Old Forge
Rasmus played on one of the best lines in the area and was a big reason for the Blue Devils success. Defensively, he was forcing offensive line to deal with him every play as he freed up the linebackers to make plays. Disruptive was a word an opposing coach used when asked to describe Rasmus up front. He finished the season with 28 tackles, 7 tackles for loss and two forced fumbles. He was also a dominant offensive lineman for Old Forge.

 

 

LINEMAN OF THE YEAR
R.J. Schirg, Sr. – Lackawanna Trail

Schirg was a three-year starter for the Lions and helped lead them to the District 2 Class 2A title in 2021. On offense, he was dominant up front in both run blocking and pass protection. On defense, he was the focus of opposing offensive coordinators, getting double-teamed on many different occasions. He still managed to make 50 tackles, 9 tackles for loss and a sack.

 

 

COACH OF THE YEAR
Steve Jervis – Lackawanna Trail
The Lions came up a little short in the division but manage to dethrone perennial power Dunmore for the District 2 Class 2A title. In fact, Trail had only defeated Dunmore one time in school history before 2021, but managed to beat the Bucks twice including the district title game. Jervis has made the Lions program one of the best small schools in the area with appearances in the state title game and state semifinals in recent years. This years team lost many of those players that were part of those state runs, but still managed to have plenty of success..
