Two Greater Latrobe High School football players were injured in a one-vehicle accident Tuesday morning.

Garrett Parker and Seth Schrecengost were hospitalized following the mishap. The accident occurred in Unity Township on Monastery Drive extension near St. Vincent College.

Parker, who was listed as the driver of the vehicle, is in critical condition with a reported head injury at UMPC-Presbyterian in Pittsburgh's Oakland neighborhood. He was airlifted from the scene.

The Pennsylvania State Police report listed Schrecengost as having moderate injuries. He was released from Westmoreland Regional Hospital on Wednesday.

"Garrett is a wonderful person and a model student," Greater Latrobe Principal John Andrighetti said. "He and his parents are on our minds."

Parker is involved in numerous organizations at the school.

Andrighetti said that he was hoping for a speedy recovery for both students.

Parker, who will be a senior, is the Wildcats' kicker, while Schrecengost, also a senior, is listed as a wide receiver.

Pat Murray, Greater Latrobe football coach, and his staff visited Parker and his family yesterday.

SALISBURY IS BACK

Former Frazier High School football coach Tom Salisbury will be back on the sidelines at the Perryopolis school this fall.

Salisbury, the winningest coach in the school's history, returns as the team's quarterbacks coach after a six-year absence. Frazier coach Larry Wilson made the announcement recently.

Salisbury was an assistant coach with Gary Dongilli at Belle Vernon Area (four years) and Hempfield Area (two years). He was hired to replace his son, Chad, on the staff. He will work with former players Craig Kordich (line coach) and son Brian (defensive coordinator).

Tom Salisbury compiled a 135-70-1 record in 19 years at Frazier.

LOGAN FINDS WORK

Former Brownsville Area boys basketball coach Pete Logan was hired Monday to coach the Clairton boys team. Logan coached Brownsville to a WPIAL Class AAA title in 2002.
