Three WPIAL players were drafted into the NFL this past weekend. Former Pitt wide receiver and Clairton standout Tyler Boyd was the first local player off the board when the Cincinnati Bengals made him their second round pick on Friday night.

There may not be a player with local connections selected in the opening round of this month's NFL Draft, but the region will nonetheless be well-represented once again when the NFL comes calling.

Penn State's Christian Hackenberg is the only player from the area with any real chance of being drafted in the first round, but that would be a surprise at this point.

In western Pennsylvania, football is the sport that the natives follow most closely, and with two major programs, Pitt and Penn State, most of the attention is divided among the two of them.

In Dr. Pat Farabaugh’s book “An Unbreakable Bond,” he tells the unedited story of Pittsburgh native and St. Francis (PA) grad Maurice Stokes and his NBA teammate, fellow Pittsburgher Jack Twyman.

In 1958, Stokes was a rising NBA star for the Cincinnati Royals. Hi life changed forever after a fall during a game against the Detroit Pistons left him paralyzed from the neck down.

Pitt and Penn State were fairly well-represented in last month’s NFL Draft, with each school sending three players into the league via the annual draft. The western Pennsylvania region also saw three players selected.

The first local player taken was no surprise, as Pitt defensive tackle Aaron Donald went 13th overall to the St. Louis Rams.
