Philadelphia High School Football

50-Year All-Star Teams by Letter, 1970-2019

  These teams represent my opinion of the best players in the Public/Catholic/Inter-Ac Leagues
from the 1970 through 2019 football seasons.
 
While acknowledging that such discipline is difficult to achieve, I have tried to make decisions
strictly based on what players accomplished in high school. Also, the order on previous lists was
maintained while new guys were slotted in.
  More than basketball and baseball, football is replete with late bloomers, who get bigger and
stronger and find their niche and even go on to long NFL careers.
  Thank you for your interest in Philly football!
