Class A Championship Preview: Clairton (15-0) vs. Bishop Guilfoyle (15-0)


by Jeff Fisher

For the sixth time in seven years, Clairton is playing for Pennsylvania’s smallest classification championship.  The Bears will play Bishop Guilfoyle in a battle of unbeatens in Hershey Friday.

Clairton has scored an incredible 940 points this season, which is 84 points shy of setting a new national scoring record that was set by Aledo High School (1,023 points) from Texas last year.  Clairton is led by quarterback Ryan Williams, who has tossed 39 TD passes with just two interceptions this year.  You can watch video of Williams in action against Wilkinsburg above in an 86-0 win on September 5th.

On the other side of the coin, Bishop Guilfoyle’s defense will be a great test for the high-scoring Bears as they allowed only 5.9 points per game while pitching seven shutouts in 15 games.

Clairton is seeking its fifth state title
