Chapman Field at Cumberland Valley will again be at the eye of the Pennsylvania high school football world this weekend when the state’s top 12 high school teams meet for PIAA state championships.

No one expected this. Statewide, the anticipation was for a rematch between Aliquippa and Bishop McDevitt (Harrisburg). But something happened along the way, and that was a thrilling double-overtime Dallas’ 26-23 victory over Stone Saunders and McDevitt, snapping the Crusaders’ 26-game winning streak.

This is Aliquippa’s 10th trip to the state finals (three as a 4A, two as a Class 3A, and five as a Class 2A). Aliquippa got here by smoking District 4 champion Selinsgrove, 52-32, in the state semifinals. The Quips won state titles in 1991, 2003, 2018 and 2021. No Aliquippa state champion has finished a season undefeated. These Quips can be the first.
