Elizabeth Forward, Thomas Jefferson, Clairton and Peters Township Play for Football Titles

By Matthew Peaslee

Four teams from the south hills area competed for WPIAL football titles in November. The Thomas Jefferson Jaguars reigned supreme in Class 4A by knocking off Aliquippa in an overtime thriller, 35-28. For Thomas Jefferson, Jake Pugh ran in the game-winning touchdown and McClain Flinn sealed the deal with an interception. Thomas Jefferson defeated Oil City, 62-0, in the PIAA state semifinals and moved on to Hershey for the state championship against Jersey Shore. In the playoffs, the Jaguars also beat Mars and Plum.

DVD

Among the many items that the Donora Historical Society has in its collection are over 115 basketball and football games of Mon Valley area high school teams from 1955 to 1979. They are original 16mm films that are in the process of being converted to DVD.


Donora Sports DVD

We launched a project in 2015 to start to transfer the films to DVD to not only get them in a usable format to be added to our artifact collection and our presentation offerings, but to get these games in the hands of the players that played in them some 35 to 65 years ago. Some games feature extensive footage of parent’s nights, football coaches, cheerleaders and bands. Most games cost $25/game plus S&H.

For games that have yet to be converted, there is a cost to transfer to DVD that includes a copy charge. This charge can range from $40 to $70 depending on the game's length. If you are interested in a particular game that hasn't been converted, please let us know by sending an email.

As you can see below in our inventory list, all of the Mon Valley teams are represented in most years.

Some of the legendary Donora players include Larry Crawford, Malcolm Lomax, Bernie Galiffa, Ken Griffey, Art Coleman and Ulice Payne.

Other notable players such as: Fred Cox (Monongahela); Gary Seykoski and John Radic (Ringgold); Larry Hughes and Ken Burkes (Rostraver); Gary Cramer and Gene Belczyk (Belle Vernon); Jeff Petrucci and George Carlock (Charleroi); Marvin Davis, Joe Zdravecky and Lance Wall (Monessen); Jim Brumfield (Elizabeth Forward) and Jack Ham from Johnstown’s for Bishop McCort to name just a few.
