Eastern A Champions

Undefeated Regular Season

WPIAL Finalists

This is my page dedicated to the 1994 Riverview Raider Football Team. I played on this team my senior year, although my position was “kickoff-team specialist”. We had a great year, winning the Eastern A Conference, finishing the season undefeated, and making it to the WPIAL Championship Game in Three Rivers Stadium. And we did it against a hellish schedule.

The Following Years

The Raiders went on to have great seasons the next four years. In 1995, we finished the regular season undefeated again, and made it to the WPIAL semifinals. In 1996, we returned to the WPIAL championship, losing to Farrell by one point. In 1997, we finally won the WPIAL championship with a victory over Fort Cherry.
