National exposure

Trinity's Andrew Sweat arrived in Florida on Dec. 30 to begin preparations for the Under Armour All-America High School Football Game, which will be played Jan. 5 at 2 p.m. and will be televised on ABC.

Practices (morning and afternoon) are being shown on ESPNU and has a several pages dedicated to the game, practice and players.

ESPN rated Sweat as the nation's No. 2 middle linebacker and the country's 47th best college prospect. In addition, some of their coverage and photos includes Sweat, an Ohio State recruit and one of three WPIAL players (Montour's Christian Wilson, Jeannette's Mike Matt) participating. Check it out.

What an honor to be selected to play in this game! Congratulations to Andrew Sweat. I wish him the best of luck at Ohio State. I have read that the WPIAL is well represented. It is always interesting to see how the wpial stacks up against the rest of the country. These are some of the best high school football players in the nation. I'll be looking forward to watching the game!
