Abington Heights High School football standout, and the 2009 Abington Journal Male Fall Athlete of the year, Eric Ofcharsky, shown above, started as cornerback for the East team in the Pennsylvania Scholastic Football Coaches Association (PSFCA) East/West All-Star game on Friday, June 19 in Altoona. The East team won the game 37-22. The PSFCA bills the game as the premiere statewide football All -Star game. Players are nominated and then selected after the PSFCA views film of each player. Ofcharsky, who is planning on attending Kutztown University in the fall, said he had no idea he was in the running until head coach Joe Repshis delivered the news that he made the team.
