Here at MSA Sports, we like to spread the wealth when it comes to shining our spotlight. It seems some players shine for top teams each and every week. Sure, we will acknowledge their greatness, but we also like to tip our cap to those players and teams that are not steady contributors in each week to the 'W' column around the WPIAL. When they do, we want to salute high and proud. So without further adieu, we shine on the brightest performance from Week Two. Ben DiNucci - Pine-Richland In the nights best finish, Pine-Richland quarterback Ben DiNucci capped off a BIG game with a GIANT play...

After a somewhat busy start to the Saturday high school football schedule in District 7 last week, an expected quiet second Saturday got a little busier thanks to some ball dropping in Washington County. a miscommunication between the schools and game officials forced the postponement of a Tri-County South Conference contest Friday night, thus California at Avella became the third wheel on the Saturday slate. Here are all three final results, thus closing the curtain on Week Two. Games marked with (MSA) can be heard archived here at www.MSAsports.net WPIAL CLASS A Eastern Conference: Monessen...

It is a recurring storyline at Indiana High School. The Stapletons are staples of the football team. It has been the story in recent years at Indiana, and it is again this season. Two of the four Stapleton brothers had big impacts on the Little Indians’ opening-night upset victory against Mars last Friday. Riley Stapleton, a 6-5 senior receiver, caught seven passes for 95 yards and scored a touchdown. Dylan Stapleton, a 6-4 junior, caught five passes for 111 yards and scored two touchdowns. They are continuing to add to this Fab Four story of brothers. Go back over the years and you’ll have a...

Welcome to Week 2 of the high school football season. Network superstar Sam Hall contacted Chick’s Picks this week to invite her on an adventure like no other – the opportunity to join him on one of his daily morning helicopter rides.  Chick’s Picks was hesitant, as panic typically sets in when performing any activity in which her feet leave the ground.  Smooth-talking Sam sealed the deal, though, using a classic line: “Come on Chixy, you’ll see the city like you’ve never seen it before.” Against her better judgment, Chick’s Picks arrived at the helipad not-so-bright and early...

Welcome back, WPIAL football! And welcome back Plays of the Week. Week one was one of the more memorable in recent memory. Upsets, numerous last-second field goals, multiple games going to overtime. The bar, needless to say, has been set high for the rest of 2014. Until then, enjoy the Week One Plays of the Week:   1. Fort Cherry 27, OLSH 26 Without a doubt, the most improbable finish of week one came at Joe Walton Stadium in Moon Township, as Fort Cherry escaped with a 27-26 victory. After OLSH grabbed a 26-20 lead with 3:18 to go, Fort Cherry would drive the field, looking for a tying...

WPIAL Football never seems to let you down. It also never surprises me how quickly the regular season goes flying by. Especially now with conference re-alignment from last season pushing conference games up to the top of the schedule, the games become very important right out of the gate. In fact, many teams only play conference games. Getting inside a kids head and making sure they know that games in early September count every bit as much as the ones in mid-October in determining if you play in November can be a tall task for coaches around the league. Here are four great ones that will...
