Jeannette quarterback Terrelle Pryor is approaching a rare double-double.

With as many as three more games remaining in his high school football career, Pryor could reach 4,000 yards rushing and passing. He has rushed for 3,781 and completed 213 of 364 pass attempts for 3,855.

After winning its second consecutive WPIAL Class AA championship Friday with a 61-12 victory against Beaver Falls, Jeannette opens the PIAA tournament either Friday or Saturday against District 9 champion Karns City (12-0). A victory against Karns City would put Jeannette into the PIAA semifinals against either District 10 champion Wilmington or District 6 champion Bishop McCort. The state championship game is 1 p.m. Dec. 15 at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey.

Jeannette is also 20 points short of the state record for points scored (755 by Southern Columbia last year).

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
