PITTSBURGH -- With the 2020 high school football regular season nearing the finish line, one final exclamation point victory may be needed for two teams in the middle of the pack in the WPIAL's Class 6A.
Baldwin and Central Catholic will have that opportunity in this week's AHN Friday Night Rivals broadcast on 22 The Point and streaming on 22thepoint.com.
The Fighting Highlanders, led by new head coach Tim Sweeney, enter with a 2-2 record with wins over Hollidaysburg and Hempfield.
Sweeney, taking over the Baldwin program as it bumps up to Class 6A this season, formerly built Derry Area into a Class 3A power.
Highly-touted defensive tackle Dorien Ford, a Pitt Panthers commit, will lead the Highlanders against the Vikings potent offense.
Also 2-2, Central Catholic enters with victories over Norwin and Seneca Valley.
Central head coach Terry Totten is in his 16th year in the program, and will rely on senior running back Eddy Tillman who rushed for over 2-thousand yards last season for the WPIAL champs.
