WPIAL Class 1A 2017 Preview

Class 1A

Eastern:

Clairton– With head coach Wayne Wade suspended the first four games of the season due to sanctions imposed by the school, many hope that the Bears train can be derailed. I think even with the loss of Lamont Wade, you should put your money elsewhere. When you average over 43 points per contest, and you have Tre’Sean Howard under center, things may just be business as usual for the Bears. Do the Bears have what it takes to win it all again with the likes of Jeannette coming back strong and Imani Christian set up for a dream season?

Prediction:

  • Clairton
  • Jeannette
  • Imani Christian
  • Bishop Canevin
  • Greensburg Central Catholic
  • Springdale
  • Riverview
  • Leechburg

Big 7:

Rochester- The Rams are always in the mix. With a large chunk of the starting line up gone to graduation, the Rams look to reload, rather than rebuild. With Caleb Collins and Malik Strozier running the offense, the Rams look to reclaim their former glory and get back to winning championships. Does Gene Matsook have the team to bring the magic back?

Prediction:

  • Rochester
  • OLSH
  • Shenango
  • Northgate
  • Sto-Rox
  • Western Beaver
  • Union
  • Cornell
  • Summit Academy

Tri-County South:

Fort Cherry- The Rangers are looking for an opportunity to take a deep run this year, and it all begins and ends with do it all Ryhan Culberson. With a magical junior campaign, he looks to take over Class 1A with a stellar senior year. With Carmichaels holding the edge over the Rangers, can he lead the Rangers to the conference title and further than the second round?

Prediction:

  • Fort Cherry
  • Carmichaels
  • California
  • Mapletown
  • Monessen
  • Jefferson-Morgan
  • West Greene
  • Avella
