February 5, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsy boys' basketball team's 24-point fourth quarter and spirited comeback weren't enough to hand one of the best Class A teams in the state its fourth loss this season Friday night.

The Chucks (7-10, 1-6 District IX League) trimmed Elk County Catholic's 41-28 lead through three quarters to 51-49 with 33 seconds left, but clutch free throws and offensive rebounds carried the Crusaders to a 54-52 victory.

Punxsy quickly fell behind 13-2 after the first quarter and were constantly playing from behind.

"We didn't shoot the ball real well and didn't rebound," Punxsy head coach Randy Reitz said. "We need to do a better job of playing a complete game."

She said her son has been a Steelers fan since childhood, and hooked the family on the team. Twenty years ago, Schierl told him that if the Steelers ever played the Packers in the Super Bowl, she’d take the family to the game — and there they are, in Dallas for Super Bowl XLV.

Love for the Steelers is a family thing for the Humphreys

February 5, 2011

REYNOLDSVILLE — Pete Humphrey, owner of Humphrey TV in Reynoldsville, has been following the Pittsburgh Steelers before the games were on television.
Actually, he’s been following the team before television was invented, and like the rest of Steeler Nation, he’s looking forward to Sunday, when his beloved Steelers take on the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV.

“I probably saw my first Steelers game in 1949 or 1950, when the Steelers played in the old Pittsburgh Pirates baseball park, Forbes Field, and I also saw them play at Pitt Stadium,” Humphrey said.
