Re: Coronavirus this n that

You forgot Neil O'Donnell playing pitch-and-catch with Larry Brown in a winnable Super Bowl 30.

Re: Best PIAA team in the State Title Era

They missed your criteria by a year, but the 1987 North Hills team out of the WPIAL was incredible and shut out nearly every team they played that season. The first team defense did not give up a point all year. They were named national champs by USA Today and had 4 players go on to D1.

Re: New LHAC member....

What will the LHAC look like in 2025? Thats the better question. I think the better question is what will the Mountain League look like in 2023? Penns Valley and P-O both applied to and were rejected by the ICC in 2019, but that doesn't mean it can't happen in the future. Clearfield is looking for ...

Re: Holy Hoopers

5 of 6 WPIAL A playoff teams are private, I see Sankofa Freedom Academy (last year's champ) is back after going 8-14 this year. They're another good private that plays much larger schools all year, but then jumps in A playoffs with a losing record with possible games ahead we could see the "Cindere...

Re: Holy Hoopers

I wasn’t aware there were charter schools in D5 orD6... There are not. I just see people voicing their support for BG/BC/BM with reasonable points but I would just hate to see those same people condemn another school later on for doing the thing they praised these other schools for Are you referrin...

Re: Holy Hoopers

Did he play football this year ? is he in the basketball playoffs? INTERESTING. Yes, he played football at Kiski Prep and transferred back to LV for basketball, but was barred from the playoffs. So, if you're keeping score, he transferred from United to LV to Kiski Prep to LV in the span of about 5...

Re: FAIR or UNFAIR advantage?

I don't know the first thing about ND-GP, but sending out females who really aren't wrestlers just to secure forfeit points also sends the message that it is okay to exploit high school girls for athletic purposes. If you have a legit female wrestler like Grace Stem at BEA, then go for it. I have a ...

Re: Boys Basketball Playoffs Week One

Schools with 5,6,7 wins on the season, have absolutely no business being in a playoff, or hope of winning, against top seeded teams. I believe this is partially a byproduct of 6 classifications and won't be going away any time soon. It is especially pronounced in single-A this year with the top two...

Re: Richland/Westmont

Everyone knows the rule coaches refs etc. the problem is for some reason the local officials have shown a lot of favor to Richland athletics. I have heard fans and coaches alike complain. Rumor has it Richland pays refs more money so of course refs want to stay in good favor to continue to get sele...

Re: Gym Size

Saint Joseph's girls are in the same boat. Hopefully both schools will be able to find acceptable alternatives.

I'm guessing Ferndale and Harmony would not be able to host games (in any given year) with this new rule in place.
