Senior Reed Anthony was named to the TCS/CE first team as a pitcher.  Reed compiled an 11-1 record on the mound for the Bobcats, surrendering a mere 4 earned runs for an impressive ERA of 0.40.  In his 70.1 innings of work, he struck out 76 while issuing only 23 free passes.  Opponents batted a miniscule .153 against the crafty left hander.  In 2016 Reed received Honorable Mention notice from the TCS/CE.  Earlier in the 2017 postseason he was recognized as the KSAC MVP, KSAC first Team Pitcher, KSAC second Team Infielder, and the Pitcher of the Year.

Ryan Anthony, a Bobcat senior, was selected to the TSC/CE first team as an infielder.  Ryan collected 20 hits, among them 2 doubles and a triple, on his way to hitting .321 for the PIAA Class A Runners-up.

He also drew 16 walks, factoring into an on-base percentage of .438.  Primarily a second baseman, Ryan had a fielding percentage of .925.  Ryan was previously named to the 2017 All-KSAC third team.

Rounding out the trio of Clarion players on 2017 TCS/CE all-star team is Spencer Miller, who earned first team honors as an infielder.  Spencer, a junior, banged out 29 hits for the Bobcats, leading to a batting average .412.  His 6 doubles, single triple, and 16 walks led to an on-base percentage of .533 and a slugging percentage of .529.

Spencer led Clarion with 18 steals and had a fielding percentage of .895, primarily at shortstop.  In 2015 he named to the TCS/CE all-star team as an Honorable Mention selection in 2015.
