Three underclassmen who helped their football teams reach the WPIAL Class 6A championship game were recognized for their efforts Friday.
Central Catholic juniors Peter Gonzalez and Cole Sullivan and North Allegheny junior Khiryn Boyd were selected to the Pa. Football Writers Class 6A all-state team.
Gonzalez made his impact as a wide receiver, catching 42 passes for 735 yards and seven touchdowns despite missing the early portion of the season with an injury. He is the son of a former Pitt quarterback, Pete Gonzalez.
Sullivan, an outside linebacker/edge rusher, had 117 tackles despite playing much of the season with a cast on his hand.
Boyd, selected as a defensive back, made six interceptions for the Tigers. Offensively, he caught 44 passes for 771 yards. He also returned a kickoff 98 yards for a score. In the WPIAL finals, he reached the end zone on catches of 68 and 51 yards to help secure NA’s first district title since 2012.
