Beaver Falls 2014 Football Preview

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

Rebuilding is not a word often used around Beaver Falls, but there are plenty of spots that coach Ryan Matsook has to replace this year. Twenty-six seniors graduated from last year's team that won nine games and reached the WPIAL semifinals where it fell to eventual WPIAL and PIAA champion South Fayette.

The large Beaver Falls senior class that graduated included five first-team All-Midwestern Athletic Conference seniors. The Tigers must replace quarterback Dan Stratton (1,442 yards passing, 17 touchdowns), receiver Sage Curry (432 receiving yards) and their top two leading rushers, Damian Rawl (1,197 yards) and Kahlil Caracter (661 yards).


Basketball: Beaver Falls grad having a strong summer

Written by Brad Everett on .

Sheldon Jeter has yet to play a game at his new school, but he's representing that school very nicely this summer.

Jeter is entering his first season at Pitt after transferring from Vanderbilt. Like most of the Pitt players, Jeter is playing in the Pittsburgh Basketball Club Pro-Am League this summer, and he's looked very solid.

A Beaver Falls graduate, Jeter is averaging 23 points and 9.2 rebounds in four games. He scored 21 points and grabbed 17 rebounds in his second game, and tallied 26 and 28 points in the past two.

Jeter, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, is playing on the South Hills Audi team. One of his teammates is his older cousin, Lance Jeter. The elder Jeter plays professionally in Europe. Pitt's Cameron Johnson, a freshman from Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, plays with the Jeters.
