Penn Preps takes a look at some of the top WPIAL performers from Week Zero. In some instances, we have video of their Week Zero performance.

Penn Preps presents some of the top performers from Week Zero.  If you feel that your performance is good enough to make this list, email us at scoutpennpreps@gmail.com.  We are looking for defensive performances as well!

We’ll take offensive and defensive stats until 11 p.m. every Sunday after the weekend games are completed. If you don't have stats for defensive stats, please send the highlights anyway. NO EXCEPTIONS TO THE DEADLINE!
