The Main Line high school football scene included a good number of talented teams this fall, particularly undefeated Haverford School, which captured its third consecutive InterAc title; and Haverford High, which won its first Central League championship since 1995 with a perfect 8-0 league mark.
The InterAc had several strong Main Line teams, including Malvern Prep (9-2 overall) and Episcopal Academy (6-4). In the Central League, Radnor posted a 7-4 overall record, and Conestoga (5-5) had a solid campaign.
The All-Main Line high school football teams are selected by the coaches. Because Main Line Media News covers 19 high schools, the Main Line Media News sports staff limits the number of sports available to first team, second team and honorable mention – but follows the priority of the coaches’ selections.
