“Mr. High School Sports” – Two WPIAL Stars To Suit Up On Signing Day
By Matt Popchock
CBS Sports Network will televise the annual International Bowl live from the Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex in Austin, Texas Wednesday night. The game, which is set for a 6:00 P.M. Eastern kickoff, features some of the nation’s top football recruits against a “World” team consisting of outgoing high school seniors who live outside the U.S.
Among those representing the Stars and Stripes are two young men who will also be representing the WPIAL: Erie McDowell running back Greg Garmon and Jeannette safety Demetrious Cox.
Garmon also appeared on CBS Sports Network during the inaugural Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl Jan. 2, during which he verbally committed to Iowa. Fellow Big Ten recruit Cox declared his allegiance to Michigan State on Monday.
In the meantime, the network will cover National Signing Day live beginning at 1:00 P.M., taking it all the way up to the start of the International Bowl. CBSSports.com also has you covered with its live “Signing Day Central” webcast, running from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Eastern. A number of coaches, including new Pitt coach Paul Chryst and new Arizona/former WVU coach Rich Rodriguez, are scheduled to appear during the webcast, which will also feature live reports from Penn State.
Chryst’s first recruiting class will feature several WPIAL prospects, including all-time district and state rushing champion Rushel Shell of Hopewell. Rodriguez also gets a WPIAL kid, Upper St. Clair outside linebacker Dakota Conwell, who backed out on Pitt after Todd Graham’s departure.
