PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — ROOT Sports High School Football Coordinating Producer Craig McConnell joined 93-7 The Fan’s John Phillips, as he does every Saturday morning, to discuss the latest news from around the WPIAL.

Obviously, Rushel Shell has monopolized the headlines with his verbal commitment to Pitt, so Craig looks at the possible short- and long-term impact of Shell’s decision to play for Todd Graham and the Panthers.

In addition, Craig breaks down top-ranked Pittsburgh Central Catholic’s Quad-A non-conference win at Gateway Friday night, a game seen live on ROOT Sports and heard live on 93-7 The Fan, and what Gateway Head Coach Terry Smith has to do, if anything, to be remembered as one of the WPIAL’s greatest coaches of all time.

The next ROOT Sports broadcast of WPIAL football will feature North Allegheny’s Week 8 visit to Shaler next Friday at 7:30 p.m.
