As we prepare for Week 9 of the WPIAL football season, we continue with our newest feature of our website, The “Mr. High School Sports” Podcast. It’s a look back at the highlights of the previous weekend, and a look ahead at things to come in high school football.

Fifty of 64 total playoff spots already have been secured, and in this week’s edition, we take a look at a couple of the win-or-go-home regular season finales as we gear up for the district playoffs, and we announce our Athletes Of The Week for Week 8:

One of the games on our agenda is tonight’s pivotal Quad-A Southeastern Conference contest between visiting Mount Lebanon and Upper St. Clair, which can be heard, beginning at 7:30, on SportsRadio 93.7 The Fan (pre-game coverage starts at 7:00 with the MSA Sports Network).

Check out the “Mr. High School Sports” blog for more high school football content, and be sure to revisit the CBS Pittsburgh family of websites Friday night to see all the final scores and final playoff picture.
