Tyler Lever, a Fox Chapel Area senior, is hoping to attend Waynesburg University where he will major in early education and special education.

He plans to play football as a freshman and then try wrestling and football after that.

“I'll see if I can manage academics and two sports,” he said.

He showed he can handle himself quite well on the wrestling mat Saturday as he earned a second-place finish in the Allegheny County Wrestling Championships.

Lever said he was happy with his second-place finish.

“I had made it to the semifinals before so it was nice to get to the finals,” he said. “It would have been nicer if I had won.”
