One name to keep an eye on offensively is running back Miles Sanders. Only a sophomore, Sanders rushed for 738 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2012.Central Catholic is led by quarterback and Florida State recruit J.J. Cosentino. Cosentino will be throwing to Shafer Swann, the son of Steelers Hall of Fame receiver Lynn Swann. He will hand the football off to Luigi Lista-Brinza and Grant Foster, the son of Steelers single-season rushing record holder Barry Foster.

The team’s five leading rushers’ return, including Jake Farrell, who rushed for more than 800 yards in 2012, and Michigan recruit Chase Winovich spearheads the defense.West Mifflin has the fastest running back in the WPIAL in Jimmy Wheeler, who rushed for more than 2,000 yards and scored 29 touchdowns in 2012.Malik Hooker, of New Castle, should garnish a lot of All-American votes at the end of the season. Hooker is an Ohio State recruit and plays receiver and defensive back.The Aliquippa Quips, winners of 648 games and 15 WPIAL championships, have only a state championship on their minds. Dravon Henry and Terry Swanson return in the offensive backfield, as does star two-way lineman Jaleel Fields, tight end Donovan Cobb, and Andrew Barton and Tyler Turner defensively, among others.
