WPIAL Week Three Friday Night HighLights
September 15, 2012
A little rain never hurt anybody, especially teen-age kids wanted to roll around on the natural surface, aka mud, or slide around on the artificial stuff. Most games were affected in one way or another by rainfall in the early part of the evening throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania, but these players laughed at the elements...and their opponents in enjoying a huge night on the third Friday of the 2012 campaign.Andrew Wingard - West Shamokin

Scholastic Notebook – 09/14/2012
September 14, 2012
When Demetrious Cox graduated from Jeannette in June and headed to Michigan State, the Jayhawks’ football team lost a big-time player. But Jeannette hasn’t lost the ability to make big plays. Take a look at the first two weeks of the season and what Jeannette has done in the big-play department is on the surreal side. Granted, the competition has been weak (Charleroi and Southmoreland), but Jeannette’s big-play ability has been magnificent. The Jayhawks are acting like a bunch of “big” shots. In two games, Jeannette (2-0) has scored 14 touchdowns (three passing, 10 running and one on a punt return), and the average length of those touchdowns is 36.7 yards. The Jayhawks have six scoring plays of 40 yards or more.
