Could this year’s Clairton football team be better than last year’s state champions? What the Bears have done this summer makes it seem possible. Clairton reached the finals of the 7-on-7 Red Bull Game Breakers national championship Saturday night in Dallas, Texas, before losing 28-5 to a team from Arlington. The event was held at SMU’s Gerald J. Ford Stadium.

“We’ve gained a lot of confidence from this tournament,” Clairton coach Tom Nola told reporters in Dallas. “We are a tiny school and coming in second out of 161 teams from across the country makes me so proud of what we did out here this weekend, and feel like we represented Pennsylvania well.”
