WPIAL realignment

The WPIAL football committee meets Wednesday and it could provide some of the biggest news of the scholastic sports year.

Among the news expected to be released from the meeting is conference alignments.

There is much speculation on the topic, particularly in Class AAA. I've heard for months from several sources that the Keystone and Big Seven conferences are getting shuffled in an attempt to make the Keystone a stronger product. For those who don't know, teams from the Keystone Conference haven't won a playoff game since teen pop ruled the radio - 2001.

Peters Township and Pine-Richland are among the newcomers to Class AAAA. Burgettstown is dropping to Class A.

Should be an interesting day.

I heard that Peters will be replacing McKeesport in the Great Southern Quad a.

The reason the keystone conference does not win playoff games is because of coaches like Jeff Petrucci, Steve Campos, and Chuck Colburn. What a bunch of jokes!

Does anybody know if Greensburg Salem is staying in the Greater Allegheny or leaving? We have yet to win a game in the conference.
