Let's actually start with Saturday's result – Burgettstown 21, Seton-La Salle 3. How bout those Blue Devils?! At 4-1 overall and 4-1 in the Class AA Century Conference, Burgettstown stands alone in third place, behind South Fayette and Steel Valley, which are both 5-0.
Burgettstown is, without a doubt, the best local story of the high school football season.
Don't be surprised if Jefferson-Morgan finds itself back in the WPIAL Class A semifinals. The Rockets are a tough, well-disciplined bunch and they learned how to win last year. This week's game against Monessen should determine the Tri-County South Conference championship.
Canon-McMillan is so close to becoming a very good Quad-A football team. The skill set is there. The Big Macs need to tackle better and eliminate the costly mistake.
Mapletown will make the playoffs. Mark it down.
I really like the way Trinity bounces back from losses. They won two straight after losing to C-M and beat West Mifflin after losing to Char Valley. Not that any loss looks good, but maybe Trinity doesn't feel so bad after the Colts shutout Hopewell, 27-0, last night.
If Donte Valentino plays Saturday for California at Geibel, he will pass 4,000 career rushing yards. Mark it down.
