A familiar name

George Reihner was a dominant force at Washington High School before becoming a key member of some highly successful teams at Penn State in the mid-1970s. Reihner was a second-round draft selection (38th overall) by the Houston Oilers in 1977, where he spent four years.

After his NFL career, Reihner attended Dickinson Law School in Carlisle, where he graduated in 1984. Today, Reihner is a Scranton-based lawyer and has a son who is considered one of the top players in Pennsylvania.

Kevin Reihner, a senior at Scranton Prep, is the 13th ranked senior in the state. The offensive line, who plays guard like his father, committed to Stanford in April. Reihner chose the Cardinal over offers from Cincinnati, Minnesota, North Carolina State, Northwestern, Pitt, Rutgers and Syracuse.
