You and I both know central underachieved under Totten.wow, folks, we gotta get some perspective- sorry this NA "championship" in 2022 is just about meaningless. 5 teams? in most other levels of D7, and others in state, a "conference title" would have been more impressive- some have 6, 7 or 8 teams. Tiger- man, im not sure if you just started following your team, but i agree w others, u have had many other better teams than 2022 at NA. Again, like i said months ago, Walker needs to do more, if they want to win "real championships." If WPIAL cannot fix this stupid alignment problems, then NA needs to "go find opponents" somehow- certainly playing Alderdice in week zero is a terrible prep for the season.
and 2017 Pr- uh, they had a great defense.
And my goodness "central has always underachieved??" huh?? not true
tiger- i dont hate NA, i have some NA friends- but in the last 10 years, Walker and staff have not done enough. IMO, having wpial 6A "combine w 5A" is not the best answer- unlikely to even get support- imo, the best option is 6A in 7, to combine with others- and just gotta travel- combine w like 19, 6, 8- enough to get a decent # of teams- maybe like 15-20 teams. Then, they play enough big schools, make their "district championships meaningful" so then they can compete w d3, d1, and d12.
But again- Walker might b a nice guy- but he has a cushy job, makes a lot of money, and it seems as tho NA thinks 9-2 is a "great year" and it seems like he's "just fine with that."
2016- had like 20 d1 players- mercy ruled in state championship
2019-had many d1 athletes including Aaron Donald’s nephew, couldn’t even beat a st joes prep missing starting QB
2021-had like 10 d1 players- mercy ruled in wpial championship
I believe d10 and wpial should combine, atleast at the 6a level
