The Tigers have yet to be unseated in the WPIAL after winning consecutive championships, a feat already matched twice in the last decade by Woodland Hills (2001-02) and Central Catholic (2003-04). But NA could be poised for something never before accomplished at the AAAA level – a third consecutive championship.
The WPIAL began the AAAA classification in 1980. Quarterback Mack Leftwich threw for more than 2,200 yards and also led the Tigers in rushing. Running back Alex DiCiantis is back and has been a presence in the offensive backfield since his sophomore season. Brendan Coniker, Gregg Garity, Michigan recruit Pat Kugler, Jeremy Gonzales, Zach Lyon and Elijah Zeise are just some of the names returning from NA’s 14-1, PIAA semifinalist team of a season ago.
