Until somebody proves otherwise, Jeannette remains as the top dog in terms of western Pennsylvania small school teams. Two straight WPIAL “AA” championships and trips to Hershey are impressive, and, believe it or not, Jeannette returns a very solid team to the gridiron in 2008. The Jayhawks are in the midst of a 57-8 run since the start of 2003, and are 38-4 since the start of 2005. Ohio State commit Jordan Hall (32 touchdowns scored), a bevy of other quality backs, and some tough, hard-nosed linemen make up a Jeannette team that could make an unprecedented third straight trip to Heinz Field, the first time Jeannette would qualify for three straight WPIAL finals since 1981-’83.
