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.

One of the top wrestling prospects in Pennsylvania high school history is coming home.

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.

The High School Sports Unsung Hero Award, presented by CoGo's, was created to recognize local student-athletes whose achievements go significantly beyond the athletic arena.

For North Hills senior-to-be Will Huffmyer, his achievements not only go beyond athletics, they are difficult to limit to any specific area.

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.

Kirilloff is graduating from Plum High School this spring, and while the 6-foot-2 former PA Cyber student has committed to Liberty University, he will surely find his name being announced at this w

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.

Mt. Lebanon senior Marie Erickson fits that description so completely it would seem as if the award was patterned after her.

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

Townsend, of Winchester Thurston School, likely won't be "unsung" very much longer.

Bob Prince was best known as the voice of the PIttsburgh Pirates for 28 years, but it was not the only job he had over his Hall of Fame career. “The Gunner” also called Steelers and Penguins games at different times during his career and was part of the NBC broadcast team for the 1965 All-Star Game.

When the Penguins hired Jim Rutherford as their general manager in 2014, it seemed like a temporary move. The former Carolina Hurricanes GM would spend his two years in Pittsburgh, and then hand the keys to Jason Botterill; the man whom several people thought deserved the job in the first place.

Exactly four months after the Pittsburgh Penguins raised the Stanley Cup in San Jose, the new NHL season got underway. While the Penguins will look to become the first team in nearly 20 years to repeat as champions, the season will be sure to deliver plenty of twists and surprises during the regular season.

As much as 80 percent of the Pirates starting rotation could be different next season. Only Gerrit Cole and Jameson Taillon are locks to return from the 2015 crew. With three spots potentially open, the Pirates could look to add veterans through waivers, free agency and trades. Here are some potential in-house solutions.

For years, the accomplishments of the Penn State men’s basketball team have been few and far between. Head coach Patrick Chambers has posted a 23-67 overall conference record in his five seasons, one of the worst marks among Power 5 schools. Only TCU, Boston College, Texas Tech and Virginia Tech have a lower in-conference winning percentage than Penn State's .256 mark during that span.
