It appears Shaler’s big win over Erie McDowell last weekend opened some eyes and is now attracting cameras.
Root Sports announced Wednesday that it will air the No. 7 Titans’ Oct. 21 home matchup with No. 2 North Allegheny live at 7:30 p.m. as part of its McDonald’s High School Football series.
Shaler (5-1, 3-0) has won five straight since dropping its opener to Upper St. Clair and boasts Penn State-bound tight end J.P. Holtz, who also runs the ball when needed. Entering Week 7, the Titans are tied with defending WPIAL and state champion North Allegheny (6-0, 3-0) for the Quad North lead.
Before their televised meeting, Shaler will travel Friday to Seneca Valley, while the Tigers host Pine-Richland.
