The Greyhounds begin 2008 with a killer non-league slate of games in Rochester and Clairton in weeks one and two, respectively. Combined, Rochy and Clairton have won 12 WPIAL football championships. If Monessen can survive the early tests, it could be a second straight perfect regular season. 16 starters return from Monessen’s 11-1 team in 2007 which bowed to Serra Catholic 28-0 in the WPIAL semifinals. Is this Monessen’s year? No team from the ’Hounds conference has won a WPIAL title since the middle 1970s (Jefferson Morgan, 1973-’74).
