PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Longtime teammates and Punxsy seniors Devon Luzell and Ian Weaver will be playing football together for at least four more years, and that college connection isn't much more than coincidental.
Luzell and Weaver fell in love with Division II Mercyhurst College in Erie, and that led to both of them becoming part of the Lakers' 2011 recruiting class in February.
"It was just a coincidence that we both liked it up there," Luzell said. "It's nice having Ian come up there with me, but I would have gone up there regardless. They were really the best opportunity."

Motorists are starting to get worried about the possibility that the price of gas could rise as high as $5 per gallon within the next few weeks throughout the area.
Punxsutawney gas prices skyrocketed 16 cents per gallon this week, said Bevi Powell, communications director for East Central AAA.
The average price for a gallon of self-serve, regular unleaded gasoline has risen to $3.53 per gallon, she said.
Powell said it is hard to predict if the price of gas will actually rise to $5 per gallon.
