As is typically the case these days, the turning point of Friday’s game at Neil Brown Stadium happened several minutes before kickoff, when the Clairton Bears (5-0, 5-0) took the field.
The history of WPIAL football is rich with talent that was properly cultivated and flourished at the collegiate and professional levels. Unfortunately, like everywhere else on the national gridiron, it is equally rich with talent that was undisciplined, and therefore, wasted.
We break down the biggest games of the second week of the 2012 high school football season, including perspective from both coaches on KDKA’s Game of the Week between McKeesport and Penn-Trafford.
In its first year of existence Central Valley won the WPIAL Class AAA championship after falling to Montour in Week 6 of the 2010 regular season. In 2011 Central Valley picked up where it left off by beating Montour en route to the conference title, but the Spartans made the champs take their medicine in the district semifinals before capturing their first Class AAA crown since 1964.
We’re going to keep our preseason coverage going with a series of rapid-fire previews, focusing on the Parkway Conference in Class AAA, perhaps the toughest of them all. For six consecutive seasons at least one team from this section has reached Heinz Field, and quite frankly, we foresee 2012 becoming the seventh.
Football returns to its roots on Friday nights in western Pennsylvania, and this fall ROOT Sports will return to…well, the roots…of its high school football coverage.
You may not see them on Saturday afternoons in “Wide World of Sports,” or at ungodly hours on ESPN2, but you might have seen a few of the strongest young men in Beaver County fought for the title of best strongman in Monaca, PA recently.

Pitt’s pursuit of one of the most sought-after recruits in the nation had a happy ending for Todd Graham. Now it’s time for him to turn his focus to the Class of 2013.
The Pitt football expert looks at the impact of Rushel Shell’s decision to stay in blue and gold–Panther blue and gold, that is–and analyzes another top WPIAL player whom Pitt would like to add to its “high-octane” offense.
Rushel Shell confirms he will play and publicly announce his college choice this approaching Friday.
We all know that Steelers fans are the best in the nation, but why not extend that passion beyond the NFL? There are plenty of great football teams in our area, both at the collegiate and high school levels!
