PIAA quarterfinals take to the air

One thing is certain when District 9 champion Brockway (12-0) plays WPIAL champion South Fayette (13-0). There will be plenty of passing.

Two of the top quarterbacks in PIAA history, statistically speaking, headline this game.

Brockway feature Derek Buganza, the top passer in state history with 9,413 passing yards. His 92 touchdown passes are fourth-best in the state.

South Fayette counters with Christian Brumbaugh, who has led the Lions to a 23-1 record the past two seasons. Brumbaugh ranks second in WPIAL history and is tied for 11th in PIAA history with 75 touchdown passes. His 6,371 passing yards ranks fourth in WPIAL history and 19th in state history.

Brumbaugh needs 202 passing yards to tie Andrew DiDonato (2002-2005) for the school record of 6,573 yards and with 371 yards, Brumbaugh could pass former Sto-Rox quarterback Adam DiMichele (2000-03) for the WPIAL record. DiMichele passed for 6,741 yards.

Congrats to South Fayetts. That O is amazing. Good luck to South Fayette, if you get past FH or Sharon you got a really tough West Catholic team waiting.

How bout them Bears? 52-0 and played on a turf that had 3 inch's of snow on it. That's what I call December football.

Congrats to South Fayette, Clairton, and North Allegheny.

I know West Catholic is good...but they havent faired well against western teams yet. We'll see.

Riverside is proving to be an interesting team coming out of the east in class A...

This is why I hate the WPIAL. We have 2 teams of note still playing and there is no talk going on. I know Clairton isn't a local team per say but they're in the Blackhills which is mostly Wash County teams. And then you have South Fayette still in states. Why no enthusiasm for these teams? Oh yea I forgot the season ends at Heinz Field.
