Five things I learned this weekend:

Shell rushes into record book
Statistically, Aliquippa (Pa.) Hopewell running back Rushel Shell is now statistically the greatest back Western Pennsylvania has ever had. Shell is quick to point out numbers aren't the whole story and he hasn't done anything to compare himself to other Western Pennsylvania greats yet, but Shell can now say nobody ran for as many yards as he did in WPIAL history.

On Friday, Shell rushed for 205 yards to bring his career mark to 7,718. The previous mark was held by Fort Cherry's Mike Vernillo, who rushed for 7,646 yards and was on the sideline to see his record go down. Also in the stands was former Pitt great Tony Dorsett, whose name and picture is on the front entrance of the stadium.
