Montour's Devin Wilson has a good chance at breaking theWPIAL record for career receptions, held by former Seton-LaSalle standout Carmen Connolly.
There is a thread between Wilson and Connolly. It's Lou Cerro.
Cerro is Montour's coach, and he also coached Connolly at Seton-LaSalle.
Connolly caught 221 passes from 2002-05. Wilson, a senior, now has 206 catches in his career. With two regular-season games left and then the playoffs, Wilson has a good shot at breaking the record. (Wilson is pictured with Cerro).
Cerro's teams have always been strong in the passing game. When he was at Seton-LaSalle, Cerro also had Bill Stull, who is among the top 15 passers in WPIAL history (Cerro also had an excellent passing game coach in Greg Perry, who is now Seton-LaSalle's head coach). At Montour, Cerro coached Dillon Buechel, who finished his career last year as the second-leading passer in WPIAL history.
Montour plays host to West Allegheny tonight in a big WPIAL Class AAA Parkway Conference game.
Making their points
How impressive was Aliquippa last night in beating Beaver Falls 66-7? You need to know that Beaver Falls is a pretty decent Class AA team. But the Quips put a rout 66 on the Tigers. I am still researching this, but I know right now that it has been a long, long time since Beaver Falls gave up 66 points in a game. I'll know more by the end of the weekend on that one.
Look at it this way: The most points the Beaver Falls basketball team gave up last season was 63.
