Game Of The Week:

Apollo-Ridge at Highlands, Golden Rams Stadium, Harrison Township:

This is a battle of 4-0 teams with the winner taking a big step to becoming one of the favorites in Class AA. Apollo-Ridge features two of the premier triple-threat athletes in the WPIAL. Tre Tipton is headed to Pitt over an offer from Michigan State and provides a threat running, throwing and catching passes. What makes the Vikings more dangerous is that Duane Brown can do the same things and stole the show with 7 touchdowns (6 offensive) in a blowout win at Shady Side Academy. Highlands will provide the stiffest challenge Tipton and Brown may face all season. The Golden Rams have been ranked among the top 5 teams in Double-A since the preseason and have done nothing to disappoint starting their season 4-0. A win over Apollo-Ridge will set Highlands up to potentially run the table to an Allegheny Conference Championship.
