Aliquippa (Pa.) Hopewell won a state championship in 2002 and the big reason for the success of the Vikings was Penn State bound running back, linebacker Paul Posluszny.
In 2003, Hopewell looks to be very strong again. The top Hopewell prospect for 2003 is 6-foot-3, 270-pound, defensive lineman, Craig Bokor.
"Craig has great feet for a big man," said Hopewell coach, Dave Vestel. "He's a very good basketball player as well and actually cut 20-pounds to play hoops this year.
"I expect Craig to play at 290-pounds next season. He can play any position on the defensive line at the next level.
"What separates Craig from other 290-pound defensive lineman is his quickness. He's fast, powerful, physical and he's a load to block."
Does Bokor have any scholarship offers?
"West Virginia has offered me a scholarship," Bokor said.
"I went to a Pittsburgh junior day last week and I'm going to West Virginia this weekend.
"My favorites are Penn State, Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State and Virginia."
Craig Bokor had 75 tackles, six sacks, three fumble recoveries and an interception in 2002. He also scored a touchdown. Those numbers were good enough to earn Bokor 1st team all-conference honors as a junior.
