On Monday, Dec. 18, the 5-foot, 10-inch, 175-pound Smith was named to the Class 6-A All-State Team by the Pennsylvania Football Writers.

Smith, who’s only a junior, was one of five running backs to make the Class 6-A All-State Team and one of two juniors on the list.

Central York vs York High football

One could argue that over the past few seasons, Khalid Dorsey was the heart and soul of the York High football team.

He was one of the team’s most important players during a period when the program went through some tumultuous seasons and one great turnaround. After playing for Bearcats teams that went 1-19 through his first two varsity seasons, Dorsey helped build York High into a 9-2 team this year, including earning a share of the York-Adams League Division I title, while also qualifying for the District 3 Class 5-A playoffs.
