In the days leading up to the 2016 NFL Draft, it was unknown whether University of Pittsburgh tight end JP Holtz would be selected.

Although Holtz did not hear his name called, it didn’t mean teams weren’t interested in the 6’3”, 240-pound senior.

Jeannette High School's class of 2016 officially said goodbye to the Jayhawks during their graduation ceremony earlier this month. Before their June 3 commencement, however, there were some awards to dole out.

Graduated senior Swade Redman was one  of the many seniors to participate in the awards ceremony on June 1, as the three-sport star took home several honors.

Major League Baseball doesn’t often turn its attention to the WPIAL. They have this year, however, to watch the talent of one Alex Kirilloff.

One of the criteria for the CoGo's High School Sports Unsung Hero award is leadership. Whether it's in the context of sports, academics or in the community, the award honors student-athletes who distinguish themselves as leaders.

It's probably appropriate that Ayanna Townsend earned the CoGo's High School Sports Unsung Hero Award as a sophomore.

Three WPIAL players were drafted into the NFL this past weekend. Former Pitt wide receiver and Clairton standout Tyler Boyd was the first local player off the board when the Cincinnati Bengals made him their second round pick on Friday night.

Expectations are high for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2016. A revamped defensive line, featuring two of the league's best ends in Cameron Heyward and Stephon Tuitt, is one of the main reasons why.

Pittsburgh Penguins’ head coach Mike Sullivan has obviously spoken several very kind words about his championship hockey team. Sullivan has complimented his team’s speed, chemistry, and teamwork. But perhaps more than anything else, Sullivan complimented their toughness.
