Well, just as I predicted in an earlier post, the Bishop Guilfoyle Marauders football team, came, saw, and conquered…AGAIN!! Third straight 1/A PIAA State title! Now, before you start getting “puffed up”..think about what was accomplished.
- Starting QB Josh Trybus HAS NEVER LOST A GAME as the starting quarterback!
- BG has won an astonishing 47 straight games! Fifth longest high school streak in the COUNTRY!!
- Clairton had not been shutout in a game in 13YEARS until Guilfoyle blanked ’em Friday!
- BG rolled through the better part of this season WITHOUT Evan Chadbourn, after he had one of the best seasons EVER by an area player in 2015, suffered an injury during summer and didn’t even play UNTIL LAST WEEK!
- A lot of folks questioned BG, when in his first year, Coach Justin Wheeler went 1 and 8. Over the last few seasons his record is something like 56 and 3!!
Sure, I may be a bit biased, because for a very long time I was attached to the team as their “Broadcast Voice”..but bias aside, we have been witnessing some of the BEST high school football in the USA, and it couldn’t come to a better program, and an even better coach and staff! Congratulations Marauders, and thank YOU!
