PrepNation 101 Preseason Countdown: No. 87 McKeesport continues the most comprehensive package of preseason high school football rankings ever published. We are counting down the PrepNation 101 Preseason High School Football Rankings, from No. 101 to No. 26, leading up to the release of the official preseason National Prep Poll on August 3.

87. McKeesport (Pa.)
Last season: 8-3, lost in Class 4A WPIAL semifinals
Coach: George Smith
Key players: LB-OT Carlows Brown (6-3, 245, Sr.), QB Ty-Meer Brown (6-1, 170, Sr.), RB Sam Gooden (5-9, 190, Jr.), S Darian Robinson (5-11, 200, Sr.)
Outlook: The Tigers return a talented roster and should make a strong bid for their second WPIAL title in five seasons. Returning to lead the offense is Ty-Meer Brown, an excellent running QB who was named to the Pittsburgh all-metro team as a junior. Carlows Brown is a Division I recruit at LB and also starts at offensive tackle. Gooden could emerge as one of Western Pennsylvania’s top running backs this season.
