Wash High's Phillips lands first offer

At 6-2, 270, Washington High School's Joe Phillips has the size to play key positions along the offensive and defensive lines to go with the speed and agility to play other places like fullback, tight end and linebacker.

Phillips, who will be a senior, landed his first scholarship offer last week from Virginia Military Institute. The Keydets play at the Division I-AA level and their 2010 schedule included Virginia and Army.

According to Prexies head coach Mike Bosnic, Phillips is drawing interest from Youngstown State and Bowling Green.

* Trinity quarterback Brad Martin will play at Division III Allegheny College.

Martin put together a solid senior season for the Hillers, throwing for nearly 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns. The latter is a Hillers single-season record and he also owns the school record for longest completion at 99 yards.

Martin is the seventh senior from Trinity's 2010 football team headed to a college program.

* Trinity graduate Andrew Sweat (pictured), slated to start at linebacker for Ohio State, has been tabbed a First-Team All-Conference pick.

* A pair of seniors from Chartiers-Houston are headed to Division III Hiram College, where they will play football.

Scott Betts, the starting catcher on the Bucs' PIAA-playoff qualifying baseball team, was a two-year starter at center and played defensive end and linebacker. A three-year letterwinner, Betts was a first-team all-conference pick in 2010.

Evan Bender, an outfielder on the C-H baseball team, started at quarterback, receiver and linebacker during his varsity career.

I see FC is advertising for a Head Boys Basketball Coach. They seem to have trouble keeping coaches and principals.....

Too bad CH isn't looking to replace a few of their own....

CH must be doing something right. Football, baseball, softball, wrestling and girls basketball all had good years.

Chartiers-Houston won a WPIAL softball title. Its baseball and wrestling teams competed for WPIAL titles.

That's a pretty good year.
