As expected, Jeannette defensive back Demetrious Cox announced tonight that he will play next season at Michigan State.
Cox made his college announcement on KDKA Channel 2 television. His other finalists were Penn State, Ohio State and Wisconsin. Cox was recruited by Michigan State to play safety, but Jeannette coach Roy Hall said there has been some talk about possibly using Cox in some "wildcat" formations. Cox had more than 2,000 yards offense this past season, including more than 1,000 yards rushing.
More on Cox later.
State champion coach passes
Sad news. Over the weekend, Fred Yee passed away. A good guy. Yee was the coach of Schenley's 1978 state championship team that beat Lebanon and Sam Bowie in the title game.
Yee also won a number of City League championships in basketball and also girls softball.
