Austin led the Golden Eagles in scoring with 15.6 PPG while dishing out 6 assists per game.
Malik Miller made it a trifecta of Mercer County boys to earn first-team honors with his selection after averaging 20 PPG this season and becoming the Steelers all-time leading scorer with 1,574 career points.
After coaching his Golden Eagles to 28 wins and the state title, Rick Mancino was named Coach of the Year by the PIAA in Class “A”.
In Class “AAA”, Marquel Hooker was named a second-team all-state selection in his senior season for New Castle.
