Coleman named to Class AA all-state team

The Class A and AA editions of the Pennsylvania Sports Writers all-state football teams have been released. Hickory standout DeShawn Coleman was named to the Class AA team at running back after rushing for 1,730 yards and 28 touchdowns on 151 carries. He also had nine catches for 138 yards and two touchdowns and finished with 210 points this season.

In two seasons at Hickory, Coleman has rushed for 4,123 yards and 59 touchdowns to make him the all-time rusher in school history. He has also won the District 10 scoring title the past two years. Hickory claimed the District 10 Class AA championship in both of Coleman’s seasons but he will graduate in the spring and play for West Virginia next year.

No other District 10 players were named to the A or AA teams. The Class AAA and AAAA teams are due out Thursday.
