Maybe some folks weren't ready for Primetime with conference action starting in Week One throughout the WPIAL. Maybe they are showing up a tad late for the 2012 drama playing out on a stage near you.

Scholastic Notebook – 09/07/2012
September 7, 2012
Sophomores had big games. Players who were their team’s No. 1 running back for the first time did some good things. A receiver turned running back also had a big game. The first weekend of the high school football season was a virtual coming-out party for some. Players introduced themselves to WPIAL football – and they were loud introductions. The leading rusher on the first weekend of the season was North Catholic’s P.J. Fulmore, a 10th-grader who had 265 yards. The second-leading rusher was Fort Cherry’s Koltan Kobrys, who played receiver last year. He ran for 250 yards.

Chicks Picks – Week Two – 2012
Welcome to Week 2 of the high school football season. Chick’s Picks dreads making her predictions the first few weeks of the season.  Her crystal ball is usually still a bit cloudy from the off-season, making it difficult to foresee accurate picks.  The boss does not want to hear about a lackluster performance from the crystal ball, however, so the pressure is on from Day 1.

Big Game Hunting for Week Two 2012
September 5, 2012
Week One was a scorcher, we saw some big time upsets, some tremendous debuts, and some confirmations of things most of us suspected would be true for the 2012 campaign. One thing I think all of us non-head coaches can agree on, is that WPIAL realignment bringing us very meaningful games at the outset of the season is a huge success. Stay hydrated, week two looks just as hot in the big games department, here’s hoping the temps are a little more football-like as we go Big Game Hunting! AAAA - Northern 8 Conference
