Football teaches valuable life lessons.
One, don't take four sacks during the final minutes of a game like Tino Sunseri did during the 104th Backyard Brawl.
Two, stick to your guns.
When the WPIAL playoff pairings were released, this fearless prognosticator picked a WPIAL Class AAAA championship game of Upper St. Clair and North Allegheny. At the time, of course, USC quarterback/linebacker/Pitt recruit Dakota Conwell was healthy.
With Conwell's injury going into the semifinals against Pittsburgh Central Catholic, the pick changed. PCC was the choice. USC won, 28-14.
Not making the same mistake.
Upper St. Clair wins, 27-21.
Last week, I went 5-3 to make my overall mark 47-9.
Montour over Knoch
Aliquippa over Jeannette
