Western PA's most prolific WR getting interest

Bill Stull of Seton-Lasalle High School in Pittsburgh is considered by many the best junior QB in the area for the class of 2005. But, you can't put up the numbers that Stull has without a top receiver to throw to.<br><br> Carmen Connolly set a WPIAL record for receptions last year, catching 85 of Stull's passes, including 15 in the final game when 14 were needed for the record. Stull is Connolly's biggest fan.

"He has the best hands of anybody I have ever thrown to," says Stull. "I just love to throw to him."

While Stull is being recruited by a lot more schools, the 6'1" 183 pound Connolly is also hearing from his fair share, mostly Iowa, Indiana, Georgetown, and Maryland.

"My favorite team growing up was Penn State," says Connolly. "I would love to go there or Pitt. My cousin Joe DelSardo plays there." DelSardo, who also played at Seton-Lasalle is a walk-on wide receiver for the Panthers.

According to Seton-Lasalle coaches, Carmen Connolly has to lower his 4.6 speed to get more attention, but Connolly, always the hard worker, plans to work hard on that aspect of his game.

A good athlete, Connolly led Seton-Lasalle in rushing as a sophomore, gaining 867 yards, including three 100-yard games in the playoffs. He is also a talented basketball player.

Also a very good student, Connolly has a 3.46 GPA and scored 1070 on his PSAT.
