Congratulations to Cruce Brookins and Greg Smith for signing their National Letters of Intent today to play college football!
Greg is headed to Miami (Ohio) University, where he will be an offensive lineman. He has been a standout player on both sides of the ball for the Ironmen, earning all-conference recognition. On defense this year, he had 65 tackles and three sacks.
Cruce is staying close by at the University of Pittsburgh, where he will be a defensive back. Cruce earned multiple accolades this season for his play at quarterback and in the secondary, including all-conference recognition, conference MVP, and selection to the Post-Gazette Fab 22. He ran for 1,663 yards, threw for 785 yards, intercepted 7 passes, and accounted for 35 total touchdowns.
Together, Greg and Cruce helped the Ironmen go 32-12 in their four years in high school. The last two years, Steel Valley has posted a 23-2 record, won back-to-back conference championships, and this year won the WPIAL Class 2A championship - the sixth in school history.
Congratulations to Greg Smith and Cruce Brookins! We can't wait to see what you do at the next level!
