1. Randy Edsall, 1976

He was an all-state selection in football and basketball and was scouted by Major League Baseball teams as an outfielder. He passed for 2,795 career yards while quarterbacking the Warriors to a league title as a junior. He earned a football scholarship to Syracuse University. In basketball, he scored 1,145 career points and led a state playoff team. In baseball, he hit .400 as a senior (16-for-40) and was scouted by the Toronto Blue Jay, Baltimore Orioles and others.

2. Rob Rinehart, 1981

Though best remembered as a line drive-hitting outfielder, football is the sport in which he was recruited hardest by college coaches. The Warriors' quarterback and running back received scholarship offers from Virginia Tech, Virginia, Maryland and Navy to play receiver or defensive back. He turned them down to focus on baseball. He was a four-year varsity starter in the outfield and was the league's top player as a senior, hitting .429. He accepted a baseball scholarship to Division II Shippensburg University before transferring to the University of South Carolina. He also was a three-year varsity basketball starter and team captain.

He was the rare four-sport all-star. In the fall, he was an all-state pick and the Division I Player of the Year in soccer, as well as an all-star kicker for the football team.

4. Chaz Powell, 2007

He is best known as a standout defensive back and running back who earned Associated Press first-team all-state honors and a scholarship to Penn State. Some national experts ranked him as the Nittany Lions' top recruit in his class. He also was a track and field standout who won the YAIAA meet in the triple jump as a junior and dominated in dual meets as a senior. He also was a starter on the basketball team.

5. Dave Fitzpatrick, 1982

He had as much raw athletic ability of anyone around. His combination of power, speed and jumping ability impressed former University of Maryland basketball coach Lefty Driesell on a recruiting visit. He was a legendary power hitter in baseball but used his 90-mph fastball to pitch the Warriors to a league title and earn a pro contract with the Atlanta Braves. In basketball, he was a double-digit scorer on a district title team. Former York Catholic basketball coach Mike Keesey remembers him for coming out of nowhere, leaping and somehow swatting away a layup attempt by one of his players, the ball flying off a wall. "One of the greatest blocks I had ever seen," Keesey said.

6. Carol Wysocki, 1987

She dominated in field hockey, basketball and track and field. She was a field hockey league all-star as a junior and led the league in scoring as a senior. In basketball, she averaged 20.2 points per game as a senior and scored 1,033 for her career. She also was a standout hurdler, triple jumper and relay sprinter in the spring, winning the triple jump at the league meet.

7. Adam LoPiccolo, 2003

He was one of the top wrestlers in YAIAA history, earning three district titles and three state silver medals in the 215- and 275-pound classes - even though he only weighed about 190. He boasted a career record of 142-7, with four of those seven losses coming to state champions. He was recruited by national powers Minnesota and Iowa but chose a Division I scholarship to American University.

8. Frank Wright, 1974

Who knows what basketball records he would have held if he had played with a 3-point line or was able to play as a freshman? His long-range shooting dropped jaws. He is the school's all-time leading scorer with 1,646 points - nearly 400 more than second place. And more than 30 years later he still is tied for eighth all-time among YAIAA boys' career scorers. He averaged 29 points per game as a senior to lead the league and received honorable mention all-state honors. He held or shared the boys' career scoring record in the league for 14 years. He also was a standout outfielder in the spring.

9. Missy Carman, 1986

She was the first athlete in school history to earn 12 varsity letters - in field hockey, basketball and track and field. She is the Warriors' second-leading female basketball scorer with 1,216 points and the school's all-time best in steals and assists. She also was a standout javelin thrower, finishing second in the league meet as a senior. She earned a field hockey scholarship to Lock Haven.
