Beaver Valley Conference
The Tigers are coming off a 9-2 season in which they lost in the WPIAL Class AA quarterfinals but this year they are dreaming big things.
And that’s mostly because they feature one of the biggest – both figuratively and literally – biggest stars in the WPIAL in 6-foot-5, 250-pound defensive end/tight end Donavan Jeter, a three-year starter.
But while Jeter is big, he is actually smaller than he was last year, as she spent the offseason working with a trainer in order to lose 45 pounds and become more lean, more svelte and improve his overall conditioning.
He has scholarship offers from dozens of schools but has narrowed his list to Pitt, Penn State, Alabama, Tennessee and Ohio State.
Jeter is not the only star returning for the Tigers, however, as they have five all-conference players back and that includes versatile lineman Raquan Crowder and senior skill position player Derrell Carter.
Beaver Falls also got a huge boost to its passing game as junior quarterback Austin French transferred in from Ambridge and is eligible to play this year.
The Tigers should be fast and athletic at the skill positions and the addition of French means they should be more explosive on offense but they will have to get past rival Aliquippa and perennial power Central Valley in order to win the conference title.
