WPIAL football drew national attention Thursday when the NFL Network revealed its “Football Town” feature on North Allegheny and Western Pennsylvania’s high school football tradition.

Cameras shadowed NA’s football team for two days in September as the Tigers prepared for rival Central Catholic. The video includes interviews with coach Art Walker and his assistants, athletic director Bob Bozzuto, a number of NA players and several famous parents with NFL ties.

“Friday nights are special here,” says former Steelers player Chris Hoke, who has two sons, Cade and Nathan, on the NA roster. “When you talk about these players, these coaches and these teams, there’s a lot of tradition.”

Sons of Joey Porter and Jason Gildon also play for North Allegheny.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
