When it comes to striking for long touchdowns, few teams do it as well as Monessen.
The Greyhounds have scored 14 touchdowns of 50 yards or more, including a season-high five in last week's 55-19 win against Serra Catholic. Clintell Gillaspie was on the receiving end of touchdown passes of 53 and 68 yards from Noah Rullo, Demond Jordan had an 85-yard run, and Javon Brown added a 95-yard run, followed by a 90-yard kickoff return.
Gillaspie, who is second in the WPIAL with 19 touchdowns, continues to be one of the most explosive players in the area. He's averaging 11.3 yards per carry (598 yards) and 29.3 yards per catch (352 yards). Of his 12 receptions, seven have gone for touchdowns. He has seven touchdowns of at least 50 yards and 10 of at least 40 yards.
