Imhotep Charter and St. Joseph's Prep have to put their bids for PIAA state football championships on hold for a day.

Because of a forecast of four to eight inches of snow Saturday in the Harrisburg/Hershey area, the two scheduled finals were pushed back to Sunday.

"The decision was reached in order to provide for the safest travel conditions for competing schools and their spectators," the PIAA said Friday in a news release.

Imhotep, trying to become the Public League's first state titlist in football, will face District 7's South Fayette in the Class AA final at 1 p.m. Sunday at Hersheypark Stadium.

At 6 p.m., St. Joseph's Prep, also making its first appearance in a state final, will battle District 7's Pittsburgh Central Catholic for the Class AAAA crown.

Imhotep's high-octane offense, averaging 47.3 points, is spurred by quarterback Andre Dreuitt-Parks and speedy running backs Nasir Bonner, Mike Waters, and Tyliek Raynor.

South Fayette counters with a solid passing attack. Junior Brett Brumbaugh has thrown for 3,611 yards and 38 touchdowns.

St. Joe's Prep, which won its first Catholic League title since 2006, has used a balanced attack, directed by senior quarterback Chris Martin, to reach the final.

The Hawks will have their hands full against undefeated Central Catholic, which has outscored opponents by 657-82.
