What Are They Feeding Them In Woodland Hills?

Seeing as how Woodland Hills High grad and New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski completely dismantled the Steelers' secondary in the Pats' Sunday night victory, it's a little easier to understand Mt. Lebanon's defeat at the hands of Woodland Hills in the WPIAL quarterfinals this past weekend.  Or not.  In any case, I have to wonder what they're feeding them boys in Woodland Hills 'cause they're big and strong and "COULD. GO. ALL. THE. WAY." (cue Chris Berman of ESPN for that last chant).

From our own Dave Reese, media relations maven and stats man for the Blue Devils:

"We more than held our own with the boys from Woodland Hills.  We had the edge in almost every stat category but the most important one: the score.

Our drive in the fourth quarter to take the lead was spectacular: moved the ball 69 yards in 17 plays and consumed 8:40 on the clock (Luke Hagy carried the ball on 16 of the 17 plays for 66 of those yards).  We just left them a bit too much time to come back, and they connected on a couple of passes that were just south of miraculous.

Our kids gave everything they had.  I was sure proud of them."

Hats off to the Lebo High football team -- great year, boys!  Silver lining?  Juniors Pat Goff (QB) and Luke Hagy (RB) are back next season.
