Here's this week's edition of Brad Everett's East High School Football Notebook.
"When filling out your WPIAL playoff bracket, you would be wise to pick at least one East Xtra team to make it to the Class AAAA final.
It's happened 14 out of the past 15 years, and a deep talent pool of big-school talent has it looking like that trend will continue.
The fight for the Class AAAA title highlights what should be an interesting postseason for East teams.
Twelve teams from the area will take part in this year's playoffs: (Class AAAA) Penn-Trafford, McKeesport, Plum, Norwin, Central Catholic, Penn Hills, Woodland Hills. (AAA) Franklin Regional, Gateway. (AA) Mount Pleasant. (A) Jeannette, Greensburg Central Catholic."
