whats up with the black hills conference? Seems like the WPIAL is trying to make it worst than the TCS

Clairton and Serra Catholic in the same conference sounds pretty strong to me. Plus, watch out for Fort Cherry. The Rangers are going to be a good football team in 2008.

On the subject of the black hills, can anyone explain why Frazier in that conference. Makes no sense from a geography standpoint.

my view on the subject of the blackhills, is that frazier shouldn't be in the conference. im pretty sure there not goint to be able to keep up with the power of Serra Catholic's and Clairtons offence. or the tightness of Fort Cherry's defence. i dont think its just geography

I will not put my biases into this comment but i would like to say something about the Black Hills Conference. I play for Frazier, starting Senior Varsity Offensive Tackle for the 2008 season. From many points of view my team is not suited for this conference, we do not have the normal level of skilled and valued Football players for power houses like Serra Catholic and a new addition, Clariton. Even though we have over 10 returning seniors as myself, only half might start. Even geographically we are at a deficit. We need to be moved to a more local and more even skill level for our team than be a practice for some teams in this conference.

i am from your conference and mr. Frazier you need to not cry about your conference not only are you making your team look terrible it sounds to a fellow player like me that you have no confidence in your leadership, strength, or football team you sound like a child. To be the best you must BEAT the best

The Blackhills Conference is the best single a conference in wpial. Clairton,Fort Cherry,Serra Catholic and Chartiers Houston are all perennial powerhouses. Hands down, Black Hills has the most talented Single A teams
