All-Lebanon County Football Team Selections: 2023 Season

In what has become a tradition in Lebanon County, the coaches from the six high schools get together at the end of each year to vote on the All-County Team.  Below are the selections from the 2023.

Cedar Crest leads the way with the most individuals being honored, with seventeen First Team or Second Team selections.  This is fitting, as the Falcons went 8-2 and are currently preparing for their District 3 Playoff match-up this Saturday against Harrisburg.

In addition to the Cedar Crest players being honored, Coach Rob Wildasin was chosen by his peers as the Lebanon County Coach of the Year.

The coaches also selected “Big Mike” Rivera for the Inspirational Award in a touching gesture.  In April Rivera passed away unexpectedly ahead of his senior season and the Cedar Crest program dedicated their season his in honor.
