Friday night tidbits

Charleroi senior Quentin Briggs is out with a separated shoulder. Briggs was injured during the Cougars' season opening loss to Mt. Pleasant.

He missed several weeks during his junior season as well.

* I'll be heading to Wash High Stadium early tonight to hob-knob with the 2001 PIAA Class AA championship team. Pictures will be posted, probably Saturday.

Also, I'll be tweeting from the game. For updates, follow me on Twitter @TheMikeKovak. Also, follow the new Observer-Reporter Sports Twitter feed @sportsOR.

* Don't expect much intrigue at tonight's Apollo-Ridge at Washington game, but looking forward to seeing the results of Rochester at Fort Cherry, Trinity at Chartiers Valley and California at Carmichaels.

Saturday's Chartiers-Houston at Shenango game looks good too.

* According to his twitter feed, Prexies junior quarterback Josh Wise will return for tonight's game. Wise was out with mono for the Prexies' season-opening loss at Clairton.

Wise (@jlwise11_allday) posted earlier Friday, "First game today lets get a scholarship! ALL DAY#11"

just thought i'd mention this. wash high was winning 37 to 0 at half time and took its starters out after the 1st series in the 3rd qrt. apollo ridge kept their starters in thus the 13 points. i dont think anything was wrong with apollo ridge keeping in starters. they worked hard all night and got going a little at the end.

Good point Prexie ... Every team could use a player like No. 12 for A-R.

Maybe Clairton should have left their starters in against you cry babies and put 60 on you would you have liked that?

Wash Hi will get a chance to play their starters against backups this coming Friday against Seton. Just like last year, this one won't be close.

Yes you will see, what you will see is a REAL AA championship contender. The Little Prexie's better bring their A game, because if they think Clairton was tough, just wait for what they will see Friday Night.
