Since 1988, a WPIAL Parkway Conference team has been represented in the WPIAL “AAA” finals 14 times – Blackhawk was that team eight times, and was in the finals as recently as two years ago, when the Cougars fell to Thomas Jefferson 34-15. Last year’s Blackhawk team narrowly lost to Parkway Conference champion Montour before getting surprised by Highlands in the first round of the playoffs. With that year of experience, and a combined record of 18-5 the past two seasons, expect the Cougars, maybe the second-best WPIAL “AAA” team, to make a playoff run this year. A rematch with TJ at Heinz? Only time will tell.
