District 7 Talk Week 5

Written by: on Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

After upsetting Jeannette, do keep an eye on Charleroi

Man, on man, you thought there was parity in the “AAAA” classification. There is. But keep an eye on the race in the WPIAL’s “AA” Interstate Conference. That could shape up to be an interesting race down to the very end.

Charleroi added to the drama with a 26-20 victory over Jeannette Friday night. Sophomore running back Quentin Briggs torched the Jayhawks for nearly 200 yards rushing in the game, and he’s got to be one of the nominees for an all-conference spot at running back. Through five games, Briggs has run for 743 yards and 10 touchdowns.

With the win, Charleroi moves to 4-1 on the season. The Cougars get Waynesburg Central this week before a showdown in Week 7 with McGuffey, also 4-1.

Greensburg Central Catholic could miss WPIAL playoffs altogether

It may sound very, very hard to believe, but at this juncture, Greensburg Central Catholic is on the outside looking in when it comes to the race for playoff berths in the Interstate Conference. The Interstate and Century conferences may be the two deepest conferences, in terms of overall quality of teams, in the WPIAL’s “AA” classification.

The Centurions, recall, entered the season with a #1 overall ranking. But two losses to Mount Pleasant and McGuffey have GCC staring at a 3-2 record.

If the playoffs started today, GCC would easily be the most talented team outside the 16-team bracket. Mount Pleasant, Jeannette, Charleroi, and McGuffey would be the four representatives from the Interstate Conference.

Kind of hard to believe, huh? A loss of any sort practically ends any GCC hopes of a playoff berth, and would only leave the Centurions with the label “most talented 6-3 team in the state.”

Chartiers Valley sophomore QB may be out for rest of season

Wayne Capers was off to a fantastic start for Chartiers Valley, leading the Colts to an impressive 5-0 start. Now, the Colts’ talented sophomore might not play the rest of the season.

Capers has an injury to his right foot, and WTAE reports that he’s out indefinitely. That spoils some hopes of a potential upset of Thomas Jefferson in two weeks time.

Capers had thrown for over 600 yards and run for 350 more. He had seven passing touchdowns and 11 scores on the ground.

CV should improve to 6-0 after this week’s game against Ringgold. But how the Colts’ season fares after this week, or if Capers will take the field again this year, will remain to be seen.

Gateway’s Rob Kalkstein surpasses 5,000 passing yards

Almost an afterthought to all of the drama and tight races in the WPIAL was the fact that Gateway quarterback Rob Kalkstein, a four-year varsity starting quarterback, surpassed 5,000 career passing yards in Gateway’s dominant 55-7 victory against Norwin, according to Mike White of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Kalkstein has thrown for 5,102 yards and 54 touchdowns in his career. He went surpassed 1,700 yards passing as a junior. He’s already accumulated 867 yards and nine touchdowns this year.

In his last 31 starts, Kalkstein has gone an impressive 28-3, and he looks to be the first WPIAL quarterback since West Allegheny’s Tyler Palko to lead a team to three straight WPIAL title game appearances. Palko accomplished the feat from 1999-2001.

Kalkstein’s career record as a varsity quarterback is 34-8 (.809).
