Bulldogs News · WPIAL & VNN Sports High School Senior Student Athlete Spotlight Series


Hundreds of thousands of High School student athletes have had their careers cut short due to the current shutdown of our Schools.   VNN Sports and the WPIAL Athletic Directors wanted to give some of these Students added recognition as they get ready to move on to the next phase of their lives.  Our senior Student Athlete spotlight series continues with DeQuay Canton from Carlynton:
