Football: South Fayette's Hayes singing better tune

Written by staff reports on .

Last year during the WPIAL Class AA Championship game, there were tweets across social media about Hunter Hayes, the country singer, the same time there were tweets about Hunter Hayes, the South Fayette running back.

Again, there could be some question about which Hunter Hayes is having a better year. Hayes, the singer, was named Favorite Male Country Artist at the People's Choice Awards but was also nominated for four other awards he didn't win. Hayes, the South Fayette running back, still hasn't lost.

South Fayette is again undefeated and playing Aliquippa for the third straight time in the WPIAL championship game. This year, Hayes has rushed for almost 1,350 yards and scored 21 touchdowns and, last week, he rushed for 124 yards and a pair of scores and returned a fumble for another score in the Lions' 27-19 win over Steel Valley.



Football: South Fayette nearing a third straight trip to title game

Written by Brad Everett on .

South Fayette won WPIAL and PIAA titles in 2013 and did the same in 2014.

A 'three-peat' performance is looking more realistic each and every week.

South Fayette continues to experience a run of success experienced by few teams in WPIAL history. The Lions take a 43-game winning streak into their WPIAL Class AA semifinal game against Steel Valley. The top-seeded Lions (11-0) handed the fifth-seeded Ironmen (10-1) their only loss, 37-0, on Oct. 9.

Coach Joe Rossi's team is getting it done on both sides of the ball. Of the four teams left in the Class AA playoffs, the Lions have the No. 1 scoring offense (49.4 points per game) and No. 1 scoring defense (7.5 points per game). The Lions have won all but one of their games by at least 35 points. Their two playoff games have been even more lopsided. They defeated Burgettstown, 63-6, and Beaver, 54-7. The Lions outgained Burgettstown, 474-59, and Beaver, 497-22.
