Blackhawk, Sr., WR
A two-time all-conference performer at Fox Chapel, Jenkins (6-4, 175) transferred to Blackhawk last winter and has made an immediate impact for the Cougars.

Peters Township, Sr., QB
The Indians’ first-year starter under center, Miller completed 11 of 25 passes for 261 yards last week in a 29-7 win over Canon-McMillan. He threw for two scores and ran for another. The Indians (2-0) host Mt. Lebanon (2-0) in a nonconference game Friday.
Trinity, Sr., QB
Roberts completed 20 of 32 passes for 353 yards and four touchdowns in last week’s 43-34 loss to West Allegheny. He will try and get the Hillers (0-2) in the win column this week during a nonconference game against Yough (0-2) on Cougar Mountain.
Bethel Park, Sr., RB
Volpatti ran for 263 yards and four touchdowns on 19 carries as Bethel Park blanked Baldwin, 35-0, last week. The Black Hawks (1-1) will host Canon-McMillan (1-1) on Friday night in a nonconference game.
