"Gregg Garrity has heard the comparisons, and he doesn't shy away from them.
After all, it's great to be compared with someone who played on Penn State's 1982 national championship football team and in the National Football League ... especially when that person is your father.
That's the status Gregg "Pook" Garrity enjoys as he and his North Allegheny High School football teammates get ready for today's WPIAL Class AAAA semifinal game against Northern Eight rival Seneca Valley at 7:30 p.m. at North Hills High School's Martorelli Stadium. The winner advances to next Friday's WPIAL Class AAAA championship game at Heinz Field. North Allegheny won the regular-season game between the two schools, 45-3.
North Allegheny has won the past two WPIAL Class AAAA championships, and the Tigers also captured a PIAA Class AAAA title in 2010 when Garrity was a sophomore."
