Keeping up with ...
One of the most prolific passers in WPIAL and Presidents' Athletic Conference history, Andrew DiDonato is eying a potential coaching career and the 2010 graduate of Grove City College is shown here coaching at the University of Buffalo's spring game.
DiDonato rewrote the record books at Grove City and South Fayette High School, where he followed older brothers Joe and David into athletics.
With the Wolverines, he passed for 7,509 yards and totaled 8,904 yards in his career – both Grove City records. In 2009, DiDonato passed for single-season records of 2,466 yards and 18 touchdowns.
As a senior, DiDonato placed basketball at Grove City and helped the Wolverines reach the NCAA Division III tournament. Despite the demands of being a two-sport athlete and standout student, DiDonato managed to catch South Fayette along its run to the 2009-10 PIAA Class AA boys basketball championship.
The second leading passer in WPIAL history, DiDonato was Grove City's Omicron Delta Kappa Sportsman of the Year and he graduate in May with a bachelor's degree in business management.
