Golden Eagles News · WPIAL & VNN Sports High School Senior Student Athlete Spotlight Series

Hundreds of thousands of High School student athletes have had their careers cut short due to the current shutdown of our Schools.   VNN Sports and the WPIAL Athletic Directors wanted to give some of these Students added recognition as they get ready to move on to the next phase of their lives.  Our senior Student Athlete spotlight series continues with Luke Wascak from Connellsville:

If you are a local WPIAL School Athletic Director or coach and you have Spring sport seniors that you would like to see spotlighted here please email  Include up to TWO images per athlete along with information about the Seniors that you would like to see highlighted.  There is no deadline for this program and we will be running multiple spotlights daily.  Due to the current nature of our situation, this will be an ongoing feature with no current timeline for an end date.
