“Mr. High School Sports” – Shell Picks Pitt

By Matt Popchock


Hopewell senior tailback Rushel Shell made a verbal commitment to Pitt at a press conference at Hopewell Senior High School Friday morning.

Shell, the WPIAL’s all-time rushing leader, addressed the media in the gymnasium at Hopewell Senior High. Pitt and Alabama were the final two schools he was weighing.

Shell says he privately made the decision around the beginning of the 2011 WPIAL football season.

      Hey brainiac…where should he have picked? He has the chance to help bring this program into the national forefront. Do the names McCoy, Lewis, Polite, Hynoski…next will be Graham mean anything to you. Pitt has put RB’s FB’s in the NFL and Shell will be another….idiot!
