The Peters Township boys basketball team looked impressive during its first round WPIAL Class AAAA playoff win over Penn-Trafford last Friday. The Indians rolled despite the absence of junior Corey Wilcox, arguably their best defensive player.
Seeing Wilcox sitting on the bench during the game conjured up visions of another defensive stopper in Peters Township's past. It's time to track the player down.
During the 1999-2000 season Peters Township was the top seed in the WPIAL Class AAAA bracket, just like this year's group. Offensively, that team was led by Eric Lang. Defensively, the Indians were led by Steve Daniele.
A dogged defender, Daniele could lock down a point guard, shooting guard or top scorer. He was the type of player coaches need to make postseason runs.
Anyone knowing of Daniele's whereabouts is urged to contact the Varsity Letters.
