"For two seasons, North Allegheny found ways to be the best team in WPIAL Class AAAA. Doing so a third consecutive season offered a formidable challenge, especially Friday afternoon at Heinz Field against Woodland Hills in the championship game.
But quarterback Mack Leftwich answered the challenge, connecting with tight end Zach Lyon for two touchdown passes that lifted the Tigers to a 21-14 victory against the Wolverines. The win gave No. 1-ranked North Allegheny (13-0) the distinction of being the first program in Class AAAA history to win three WPIAL titles in a row
"It's a collective thing with the group of seniors that we have -- they've experienced it since they were in 10th grade and they have the work ethic, the sacrifice, the commitment that's involved," North Allegheny coach Art Walker said.
"To have a group that's done so much over the past three years, for me as a coach, is remarkable to see.""
