"Montour to go against one of the nation's best" - Story by Mike White.

"In order to take another step toward becoming the No. 1 Class AAA team in the state, the Montour Spartans will have to beat a team that has a player ranked among the best in the country.

Montour will play in the PIAA Class AAA semifinals Friday night at Mansion Park Stadium in Altoona against Bishop McDevitt. McDevitt features defensive end Noah Spence, a senior who is ranked among the top 10 players in the country.

Spence (6 feet 4, 245 pounds) is ranked the No. 6 player by, and No. 9 by Montour coach Lou Cerro has watched Spence on film and can understand why he is so highly touted."
