Pennsylvania school breaks record with 59th straight win


Winning 10 games in a row isn’t easy, but Clairton high school in Pennsylvania won 59. The Bears continued their winning streak winning against Neshannock high school last week. Clairton high school beat Neshannock high school 37-7.

Armani Ford, quarterback for Clairton, had an amazing game. He lead the way with four touchdown passes. Tyler Boyd, Clairton tailback, scored one touchdown and rushed for 127 yards on 19 carries. Teammate Byron Clifford chipped in with six rushes for 131 yards.

According to Tom Nola, Bears coach, it felt great to get the win.

Clairton high school tied Central Becks West for the best record in the division.

Clairton will play the winner of the Sto-Rox on Friday in the WPIAL Class A Championship at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. Clairton high school won three PIAA Class A championships in a row and four consecutive WPIAL titles.

Although Clairton dominated most of the game, they had quite a scare when Boyd had some back problems during halftime. Boyd is a highly scouted Division I recruit and during halftime his back started to stiffen. He saw limited minutes during the second half.

Boyd has scored 107 touchdowns during his career. The WPIAL record is 111 set by Hopewell’s Rushel Shell. The state record is 114 by Steelton-HIghspire’s Jermiah Young from 2005-2008.

Some schools that are interested in Boyd are Notre Dame, Penn State, Michigan State and West Virginia.

I was really impressed with Clairton’s performance against Neshannock. Neshannock was doing really well this season at 10-1 and I thought they were going to put up a better fight against Clairton. Clairton proved just to be too good against Neshannock.
