This Week on the MSA Sports Network

While others spend their time creating smoke and polishing mirrors, we spend our time on our Labor of love here in September with plenty of high school and college fall sports action this week here on the MSA Sports Network. We move into Week Two of the 2014 season with 29 WPIAL football games on Friday and Saturday with Friday's action starting with the MSA Sports Pregame Show and concluding with the one and only WPIAL Scoreboard Show.

WPIAL Saturday's Scholastic Starz for 8/30

Saturday football continues to become more rare with each passing school year. Now that Geibel Catholic is not fielding a team this season (moment of silence), the WPIAL now only has four schools that play a majority of their home games on Saturday afternoon: Summit Academy, Wilkinsburg, Riverview & Western Beaver. But that doesn't mean good things don't happen the day after Friday night lights. Here are the top five performances from a rather busy first Saturday of 2014.

WPIAL Friday Night HighLights for 8/29

The curtain rose Friday night on the 2014 WPIAL football season. Once again this season, MSA Sports will take time to look at ackowledge the top performances each Friday night with a little piece we call Friday Night HighLights. Sometimes they have gaudy numbers, sometimes they just grind it out, most times its an individual , but there are times we tip our cap to an entire unit or team. Whatever the case, here are the top performances that led to an opening night victory.

Chicks Picks - Week One

Welcome to Week 1 of the high school football season. The ice bucket challenge has taken over social media outlets everywhere over the last several weeks.  Chick’s Picks recently accepted the challenge – which raises money for ALS – and then, once completed, appropriately passed the challenge onto three others.

Spending countless hours selecting her chosen three, Chick’s Picks finally narrowed down her list to two old pals from college, and, last but not least, The Fumbler.  Chick’s Picks selected her biggest prognosticating rival for the challenge after realizing that she had been tolerating The Fumbler’s competitive taunting for 15 years—and there was no one she would rather see dump a chilly, ice-filled bucket upon their head than him.

Where does the time go? Not a question we care to try and answer here in Big Game Hunting but, where should you go with your smart phone or radio dial in week one of the 2014 WPIAL football season? That we can definitely help with. So forget the time and let’s go Big Game Hunting!

CTK '14: MSA Sports Preseason ELITE ELEVEN

Dual-threat quarterbacks seem to be all the rage in football these days – and it shows on the Elite 11 team.

The Elite 11 is made up of the top 11 players in the WPIAL, regardless of position. It is picked by the MSA Sports staff. This year’s team includes three quarterbacks who are dual-threats. In other words, they are excellent runners as well as passers.

The dual-threat QBs are Seneca Valley’s T.J. Holl, Quaker Valley’s Dane Jackson and Ringgold’s Nico Law.

But the Elite 11 is not without a traditional dropback QB. South Fayette’s Brett Brumbaugh might end up the most prolific passer in WPIAL history.

Overall, nine seniors and two juniors are on the team. Here is a look at the MSA Elite 11.

CTK '14: Pittsburgh City League Preview

The Pittsburgh City League once again is a six pack.

This is the third consecutive year that the City League will have only six teams. The closing of some schools has shrunk the league drastically in the past few years. Oliver and Langley closed after the 2011-12 school year. Only 10  years ago, the City League had nine teams.

The City League almost dropped to five teams this season. Westinghouse had asked the WPIAL to join its league, but the WPIAL turned down Westinghouse’s request.

Here is an preview of the six teams in the City League:

CTK '14: WPIAL A Eastern Conference Preview

In the new-look Eastern Conference, four teams return while there are five news kids on the block. But with the pedigree of most of the newcomers, you can see why they are considered the Fearsome Foursome.

Here is the resume for the five new entrants into the Eastern Conference. Ten WPIAL football championships in the last eight years, two perennial powers in Class AA moving down to Class A and a team that set a district and state record 66-game winning streak along with the team that eventually broke that historic run.

This could mean a tough 2014 campaign for Eastern traditionalists Leechburg, Riverview, Springdale and Wilkinsburg who finished a combined 8-28 a year ago and were all home listening to the postseason on MSA Sports.
