Another top 10 list
An anonymous poster asked if I could name the top 10 multi-sport student-athletes from Washington-Greene counties that I've covered over the past 10 years. After some thought and research, I completed the list.
As said on a previous post, former Peters Township standout Jim Gallagher tops the list. A seventh-round pick of the Chicago White Sox in the 2007 draft, Gallagher is the second-best high school baseball player from the WPIAL I've watched. Former Pine-Richland star and Pirates first-round pick Neil Walker is the first. Gallagher is also one of the top high school quarterbacks from the area over the past decade and had opportunities to play the position at the DI level but opted to play baseball at Duke.

From there ranking the athletes is too difficult and, does it really matter who is fifth or eighth?
With that, here are the remaining nine (in alphabetical order):
Lee Fritz, Waynesburg
Justin Gregula, Wash High
Bobby Hathaway, Carmichaels
Mike Hull, Canon-McMillan
Brianna Liebold, Chartiers-Houston
Dan Mozes, Wash High
Coleman Scott, Waynesburg
Andrew Sweat, Trinity
Travis Thomas, Wash High
