WPIAL Week 5 Games of the Week

Last week, the headline game was the offensive explosion between Beaver and Keystone Oaks that went down at Dormont Stadium. Beaver triumphed by a 77-49 margin, which was the most points scored in a WPIAL game since the 1920s. Keystone Oaks QB Alex Smith set a WPIAL record with 653 yards from scrimmage – throwing for […]



Well, that sucked. There is some behind-the-scenes stuff happening with the blog and the servers it is hosted on and the platform and lots of technical stuff. Long story short, I’m not sure when this will actually go up because there will be some publishing delays. Not that you want to re-live this disaster any […]


2016 GAMEDAY 3: Philadelphia Eagles

4:25pm Baberaham Lincoln Vampire Hunter Field TV: CBS (map) Radio: WDVE and other affiliates After last week’s emotional ride over the hated Cincinnati Bengals, it could be easy to lay off the gas pedal heading in to a Week 3 road game against an NFC opponent. We only see the Eagles once every four years […]


WPIAL Week 4 Games of the Week

We are a third of the way through the WPIAL season. With fewer teams in each conference, the teams in 6A, 3A, 2A, and 1A play fewer conference games. This means that some teams have played just one conference game so far and others have played all three of their games against conference opponents so […]


GAME RECAP: Apocalypse Later

After the way the Steelers delivered the knockout punch to the 2015 Cincinnati Bengals, everyone was looking forward to the first meeting between the teams this season. When the schedule was released, it was a bit surprising that the first meeting was not a Primetime game, but everyone circled it nonetheless. This was anticipated to […]


2016 GAMEDAY 2: Cincinnati Bengals

1:00pm The House that Hines Built TV: CBS (map) Radio: WDVE and other affiliates It seems like forever since the Steelers last took to the turf at Heinz Field. Their last preseason game at home was over a month ago. Pitt has played Penn State more recently than the Steelers played in Heinz Field. Aliquippa […]


WPIAL Week 3 Games of the Week

Last week was the Week of the Upset in Western Pennsylvania. The headliner was Beaver (not Beaver Falls as many suspected) ending Aliquippa’s 62-game regular season winning streak that stretched back to 2009. Incredibly, Beaver became the first WPIAL team other than South Fayette to beat Aliquippa since 2009. Beaver QB Darius Wise, who last […]


GAME RECAP: Mr Brown Goes to Washington

Welcome (finally) to the 2016 NFL season. Starting the year on Monday Night meant having to wait through not only the full weekend slate of games but also the entire work day on Monday before we actually got to see our team play football. What did your quarterback do during the National Anthem? First Quarter […]


Steelers-Redskins Tweetcap

The Steelers got off to a big start to the season by pummeling the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football. Full Game Recap will be up tomorrow. For now, enjoy the best of Twitter from tonight’s biggest destruction of Washington since the aliens visited in Independence Day.   Did anyone take a knee, or were […]


2016 GAMEDAY 1: Washington Redskins

7:10pm FedEx Field TV: ESPN Radio: WDVE and other affiliates It seems like forever since the Steelers have played football, let alone a meaningful game. Since the last time the Steelers took the field for the preseason finale that was more of a “run out the clock situation” than anything else, there have been two […]


It’s A Long Way to the Top: 2016 Steelers Season Preview

Nine long months ago, the 2015 Steelers season came to a close in Denver. The Steelers managed their way through that game without Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell, DeAngelo Williams, Kelvin Beachum, and an injured Ben Roethlisberger. Incredibly, Ben was carted off the field four times last season and still managed to finish the year. Usually, […]


WPIAL Week 2 Games of the Week

The first full week of 6 classification football brought about some interesting matchups but also reminded us that many things are still the same. A lot of people thought that this would be the year Beaver Falls topped Aliquippa, considering the Tigers brought back nearly their entire team and the Quips were breaking in new […]


Record Chasing 2016: Players Moving Up the Steelers All-Time Lists

The preseason is finally over and the rosters are now trimmed down to 53 players. As the Steelers prepare for their season-opener against Washington, I conducted my annual review of the Steelers All-Time Records to see where the current players stand. The Steelers are once again coming off a season where Antonio Brown broke the single-season receptions […]


WPIAL Week 1 Games of the Week

The official start of the WPIAL football season is finally upon us and thus begins the six classification era of Pennsylvania football. Some teams got a start last week with “Week 0” games that were essentially scheduled preseason games that I won’t be counting on my WPIAL Standings Page as they do not count towards […]


Battlebots Season 2 Finale Recap

After one of the most disjointed seasons in television history that started with a “preview” episode more than a month before the actual season then was interrupted by a Presidential address and went on a two-week hiatus for the Olympics, Battlebots came to its epic conclusion. If you missed any of the previous episodes this […]
