With a new addition, York County now has 4 players on the Pa. Big 33 roster


The Big 33 Football Classic takes on even more of a York County flavor.

Another York-Adams standout was added to the Pennsylvania roster on Thursday night.

Linebacker Carter Glassmyer has become Central York High School’s third player selected for the 65th All-Star Game, known as the “Super Bowl of High School Football.”

In all, four York County players are now on the Pennsylvania roster.

Glassmyer will join two of his former Central York teammates on the Pennsylvania roster: Trenton Dunnick and Treyshawn Smith. Dunnick was selected at tight end, while Smith was selected at defensive back.

The other York County player in the game is York High offensive lineman Joden Nelson.

The competition will take place at Bishop McDevitt High School near Harrisburg at 2 p.m. on Monday, May 30. The 38-man team from Pennsylvania will face an all-star team from Maryland.

Glassmyer had previously been named Pennsylvania East-West Big School’s All-Star Game. Big 33 and East-West games are sponsored by the Pennsylvania State Football Coaches Association.

Glassmyer plans to play at the NCAA Division I football championship subdivision level for Saint Francis.

Glassmyer stood out for Central York, helping the Panthers win three consecutive York-Adams Division I championships.

He was named one of PAFootballNews.com’s Pennsylvania Football Writers and Coaches Select All-State Class 6-A Teams. The 6-foot-1, 215-pounder was a force at linebacker for the Panthers during an injury-shortened campaign. In eight games, he had 88 solo tackles, 38 assisted tackles and 126 total tackles. He averaged 15.8 tackles per game. During the season, he had seven tackles for loss, three sacks and two interceptions, which he returned for 63 total yards.

Glassmyer helped Central to an 11-1 season in 2021. He was the 2021 York-Adams Division I Defensive Player of the Year.

Glassmyer replaces Pine Richland linebacker Jeremiah Hasley, who retired from the game.

Another Pennsylvania center product, Justin Cook, was also named to the Pennsylvania Big 33 roster on Wednesday as a defensive back, replacing Penn Trafford defensive back Jack Jollie.

Every Super Bowl ever played has included at least one former Big 33 player.
