• 5 teams from western Pa. fighting for state titles this week


    The state championships for high school football start Thursday afternoon and five teams from western Pennsylvania are fighting to win state titles.

    Channel 11 has followed the progress of these teams all season on Skylights.

    For Quaker Valley, it's a chance to make history.

    The school has never won the state championship.


    Channel 11's Chase Williams brought you Quaker Valley's Cinderella story last month, highlighting the team that was never expected to make it all the way and has rallied around two teammates whose mother is battling cancer.

    Jeannette is also heading to Hershey, playing in one of the first games Thursday afternoon. They will play Homer-Center. The Indiana County school is the first Heritage Conference team to reach the state title game.

    For Gateway, it's the chance to cap off a winning season and represent Monroeville in the east.

    The fourth contender, Pine Richland, has had an incredible season, one fans hope ends with a trophy.
