Harrisburg (Class 6A), Bishop McDevitt (4A) and Steel-High (3A) are among the PIAA football state semifinalists this weekend. And all of them have recent championship pedigrees. The Cougars face WPIAL power North Allegheny on Saturday; the undefeated Crusaders take on District 3 champ Dallas on Friday; and the small-school titans and undefeated Rollers get District 4’s South Williamsport.
