PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — The infamous events involving former Ohio State head football coach Jim Tressel that dissuaded some WPIAL youth from going there have not stopped the new regime under Urban Meyer from pursuing western PA talent, and the Buckeyes have added a significant name to their 2014 freshman class.

“Mr. High School Sports” – PIAA Championship Outlook: Zimmer Sparks Bethel Park

One game is all that separates neighborhood rivals Mount Lebanon (22-3) and Bethel Park (23-3). It’s all that separated them in the AAAA-Sec. 4 girls’ basketball standings, and it’s all that separated the Blue Devils from a shot at another district crown.

HERSHEY, P.A. (93-7 THE FAN) — Tyler Boyd, perhaps the most bountiful byproduct of his team’s historic journey, fell shy of the state record for career touchdowns. Commit that to memory, because it’s pretty much the only shortcoming of the Clairton Class of 2013.
