Sports Recruiters.com announces that University of Pittsburgh Football Coach Pat Narduzzi will be the keynote speaker at the sixth annual Mr. Pennsylvania high school football awards on Saturday, February 13, 2016 at 5:30pm at the Holiday Inn Harrisburg-Hershey in Grantville, PA.

Coach Narduzzi continues to rejuvenate the football program and has the team heading in the right direction toward a promising future. The intensity and passion displayed on the field and on the recruiting trail has been very impressive. Pitt is having an excellent season thus far and under Narduzzi’s leadership the Panthers have recently cracked the AP Top 25 Poll.
Coach Narduzzi will be presenting the awards to the two winners: one for the Small School Mr. Pennsylvania, (Class A and AA players), and one for the Big School Mr. Pennsylvania, (Class AAA and AAAA players). The five finalists in each class will be present and winners announced that night.
