First-year coach Jon LeDonne will undertake a rebuilding job at Shaler Area, a program that has posted back-to-back winless seasons.
Following a 5-5 playoff season in 2011 the Titans went 0-9 in 2012 and 2013.
LeDonne, a defensive coordinator at Gateway last season and a member of a WPIAL championship team as a player with Aliquippa in 2000, will try to snap the Titans' 22-game losing streak this season.
Senior linebacker Tim Nickel (6-0, 210) is a returning first-team all-conference selection. He will be the nucleus of the defense and the offense where he will start at running back.
