Thursday Night High School Football Aliquippa-Beaver Falls: Recruiting Outlook

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Make sure you watch the big game featuring a number of big 2014 recruits.

Aliquippa and Beaver Falls will be getting together Thursday night on Root Sports Pittsburgh. This game features a number of good prospects, and it is certainly worth your time to check it out. Aliquippa and Beaver Falls is one of the most storied rivalries in all of Pennsylvania. They boast some of the greatest names in football history past and present. These two schools have been kind to Pitt in the past, and coach Paul Chryst hopes they will be helpful again.

The meeting between Aliquippa and Beaver Falls will feature a number of top prospects in the 2014 recruiting class that will be high on Pitt's radar. The most notable of which is Dravon Henry. Henry appears to be the next great Aliquippa athlete to go on to college. At 5-11 180 pounds, he will likely project as a defensive back, and could be ranked as highly as a four-star prospect. According to ESPN, Henry already holds offers from Pitt, Ohio State, Michigan State, and West Virginia. Beaver Falls will feature a good defensive line prospect in Brock Boxen. Boxen's only offer comes from Pitt, and they obviously have the inside track on him. Boxen is an undersized Defensive Tackle from the area, and Pitt has done well with those looking at Mick Williams and Aaron Donald. He will be likely to attract more offers in the off season.

Aliquippa and Beaver Falls can boast their history with just about any high school in the country. The names that have passed through those doors speak for themselves. These two teams have plenty of talent outside the two names I mentioned, but Henry and Boxen will be high priorities for Paul Chryst in 2014. Western Pennsylvania has a number of good prospects for next season and it will be important that Pitt can hold off Ohio State and others away from them.
