That didn't take long at all. Haha and someone said he was going to be better than Conner.
Hopewell has put a few guys in the NFL. Revis, Shawn Gilbert, Tony Dorsette, His son, I know there are more. And My all time Pittsburgh Mauler. Peep Short. Ball hawking CB.
He sustained an injury of some sort, cant find any news on the extent of his injury but if a UDFA gets injured bad enough before camp opens, the team has to let them go....
I'm telling you....that BBD guy is "Poison"....to back up RBs...
yea, didn't Paul Pasluski middle linebacker come from Hopewell, played for Penn State, Buffalo Bills and now for Jacksonville Jaguars.
Posluszny did play for Hopewell. I happen to be lucky enough to see Dorsett play high school ball there since I am a Hopewell grad 1978
My brother in law is 90 something. Last I heard he still goes to Hopewell games. His son never played but he went to all the home games
I've always said if you want to rob a house Friday night in Western PA especially Beaver County with a lot smaller towns than the other counties would be the place to do it. Everyone is at the game. Entire towns shut down.
And he is still playing at a high level for the Jaguars. A tackling machine. Also saw Dorsett in high school. Seems like there was a ton of talent in the area during the steel mill days.
I also called this one early on - Shell is a nomad in his football life to date - not NFL material - wishing him a long and distinguished career in Arena Football.
Pozluszny stinks. Yes, he can tackle, but the ballcarrier always goes upfield. Cannot rush the passer and cannot cover. He could only play for the Jaguars.
Don't be surprised if the Jaguars win their division this year. They made some good moves this year, it all comes down to Bortles and if he gets rid of his hitch in his throwing motion. Posluszny is getting older but is still servisible and doesnt stink.
Good for him. Back in the day the field had no lights so all home games were Saturday afternoon. LOL
Speaking of Beaver County. Went to a game a few years back in Beaver. I went to Quaker Valley. We were up 19-0 at halftime. Told my brother, we should win. He said, no one wins in beaver county but the home teams. Don't know what the final was but we were down 7, scored. Lined up for the X-point. Ball snapped. Ref threw a flag. Ball hit the center in the back of the head. Ref picked the flag up. Said NUTTIN LOL
Shell was a head case even before he signed with Pitt. He had NFL talent, sometimes it more than talent.
I had to laugh at the poster who said shell was better than Conner. Conner has more heart in his little finger
than Shell had in his whole body.LOL. James Conner can play, yes he is no Levean Bell, but he will be a servicible
back up and give Le'vean a breather. Here is hoping our crack pot coaching staff gives Conner 10 touches a game.
lol I went to beaver and tore my ankle to shreds in Quaker valley in 98.
That was 32 years after I graduated so It wasn't me LOL. I was a manager on the QV Football team for 3 years though (too small to play). Those ratchet Cleat wrenches were great during the fights after too LOL. Spin it backwards on my finger and it went right to the nose through the face mask.
I think Conner can be a heck of a lot better than a backup and thinking thats why the Steelers chose him. Bell might not be here much longer.
And Conner is dropping weight just like Bell did. I think he is going to be a beast.
