BISHOP McDEVITT in Harrisburg, which plays Archbishop Wood for the Class AAA state championship tomorrow night at HersheyPark Stadium, has a few notable connections to Philadelphia football.
The school has produced former Eagles running back Ricky Watters and current Birds star LeSean McCoy.
McCoy's pride has come through this week on Twitter as he talked about his alma mater.
"The best football program n PA that produce college n pro athletes Bishop MCDEVITT ... State champs next week," McCoy tweeted.
McDevitt, nicknamed "Tailback High" by its supporters, has produced many other running backs, dating back to Watters in the mid-1980s. McCoy ran for 2,828 yards with 31 touchdowns as a junior.
"It feels good waking up knowing ur from the best high school football program n PA," read another tweet.
