Conestoga forward Chris Donovan has been busy in the postseason, scoring nine of his team’s 12 goals en route to the District 1 Class 4A titles as the Pioneers chase a second successive PIAA crown.
That excellence didn’t factor in to the All-Central voting, conducted by coaches prior to the postseason. But it reinforced the notion that they chose widely in making the senior Drexel commit the league’s MVP.
Donovan joined teammates/classmates Nick Jennings and Mike McCarthy on the first team. Lower Merion also placed three on the first team in Max Shapiro, Harrison Bloch and Sebastien Connelly. District 1 Class 3A runner-up got two spots via Alex Kades and Evan Tracy.
That leaves just four berths from the Delco contingent: Andrew Weir of Garnet Valley, Cameron Morse of Haverford, Ryan Peter of Radnor and Nate Perrins of Strath Haven.
The All-Central team is chosen by nomination and voting from league coaches. The Daily Times and PaPrepLive have no input in the process.
