Every time I cover a game at Charleroi's downtown football stadium which sits atop the bank of the Monongahela River and was build in 1937, I feel like I've been transported into the past. That stadium is a link to the great era of WPIAL football when players like Myron Pottios and Mickey Bitsko dominated opponents and led the Cougars to prominence and WPIAL titles.
Just think about how many great players and teams rang that bell in the end zone near the home locker room.
Sadly, the 2010 football season will be the last played there before Charleroi moves into an on-campus stadium in Fallowfield Township.
It's definitely one of my favorite venues, probably at the top of my list just ahead of Parker Field in Jefferson.
