I'm just sayin'
Here is a matchup I would pay to see in the PIAA football semifinals: Clairton vs. Port Allegany.
Both teams play in the PIAA Class A quarterfinals this week. If they both win, they will play in the semifinals next week. We all know about Clairton and its 60-game winning streak. Port Allegany, a District 9 school, has quarterback Matt Bodamer, who set the state record this season for career passing yards.
Bodamer has thrown for 3,522 yards this season alone. That's a career for most WPIAL quarterbacks. He is 194 of 267 and is 301 yards shy of the state single-season record. Also, his 49 touchdown passes are only three short of another state record. But just a hunch that Bodamer might find things just a little tougher against Clairton's defense. But it would still be interesting to see. Bodamer threw for 262 yards last week on a snow-covered field.
Port Allegany, though, has to get by Sharpsville first in the PIAA quarterfinals tomorrow night. Clairton has to get by Berlin Brothersvalley, but that won't be a problem. Sharpsville beat Port Allegany in the PIAA playoffs a year ago. Read more...
