Fay-West players to watch
MATT HYLAND – Penn-Trafford
Junior – QB-WR/DB – 6-4, 205
The Buzz: Hyland figured in both Penn-Trafford touchdowns during a 13-6 victory over Norwin, converting a fourth-and-4 into a 21-yard scoring pass to Mike Brown after Hyland’s 1-yard run in the opening minutes had put the Warriors ahead, 7-0.
PAT PARISI – Hempfield
Junior – RB/LB – 5-9, 165
The Buzz: In Hempfield’s 24-14 victory over Latrobe, Parisi rushed for a career-high 130 yards on 14 carries, representing one more attempt than he previously had for the season. Parisi, who did not play last season, entered the game with just 188 yards rushing. Coach Greg Meisner has called the junior “a hard-nosed kid, a joy to coach.”
PAT SIOR – Yough
Senior – WR/DB – 6-1, 180
The Buzz: A staple in the lineup, Sior has been a defensive leader for Yough (5-4), which ended the regular season with a 39-14 rout of Southmoreland. The versatile senior, who also plays wide receiver, has contributed in other ways this season besides statistics.
DAUNTE WEAVER-JOHNSON – Greensburg Central Catholic
Senior – RB/LB – 5-9, 175
The Buzz: Weaver-Johnson is an all-purpose threat who can provide yards as a runner and a receiver. His fourth-down reception kept a scoring drive alive in unbeaten (9-0) Greensburg Central Catholic’s 28-14 victory over Jeannette. Weaver-Johnson also has intercepted two passes on defense this season.
