Terrelle Pryor To Be Inducted Into WPIAL Hall Of Fame


One of the Redskins' newest receivers, Terrelle Pryor Sr., will be inducted into the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League Hall of Fame it was announced on Thursday.

Pryor was one of the best two-sport athletes in WPIAL history at Jeannette High School, leading both the football and basketball teams to WPIAL and PIAA titles in his senior season.

In football, Pryor was the only player in Pennsylvania history to rush and throw for 4,000 yards, and led his team to a 16-0 record, scoring nearly 60 touchdowns.

While on the court, Pryor was just as talented, scoring 2,285 career points, which ranks ninth all-time among WPIAL basketball scorers. He also won consecutive Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Player of the Year Awards as a junior and senior.

Pryor was also ranked as the 39th best basketball recruit in the country in ESPN's Top 100 of 2008, 14 spots higher than Klay Thompson. Just imagine what he'd be like in the NBA now.

According to Tribune Live, the 2017 induction class, which will be honored on May 26, also includes Robert Cloherty, Jim Collins, Leigh Curl, Brian Generalovich, Dan Mazzocco, Nico Megaludis, Melanie Morgan, Annessa Steele, Joe Thomas, George Novak, Joe Walton and the 1994 McKeesport football team. Blackhawk senior Emmanuel Hilton was the John Challis Award winner and longtime golf committee member Jerry Roman received a Courage Award posthumously.
