MAKING THE CUT – MICHAEL PIETROPOLA
Football is arguably the most popular sport in the United States. Over one million high school athletes play football. Of those million, only 72,000 players compete at any collegiate level. That is only 6.7% of all high school football players. Today on Making the Cut we speak to Michael Pietropola – a 2015 graduate of Wellsboro High School who has gone on to play football at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP).

Pietropola was an All-State quarterback and finished with a high school career stat line of 6,150 yards, 68 touchdowns and 27 interceptions. Pietropola was a part of a 10-0 Northern Tier League Championship team his junior year. This team changed the culture of Wellsboro Football that had been circling the bottom in previous years. “We changed Wellsboro Football. The winning transition is now alive in Wellsboro Football and I credit the (2013) team,” Pietropola stated.

The Tioga County Fair is something many people look forward to each year as a way of bringing the community together to enjoy a week filled with a variety of activities for everyone.

IT’S ALWAYS A “GOAT” TIME AT THE FAIR
There is no “kidding” around at the goat showmanship show at the Tioga County Fair!
Melanie Berndston, an FFA advisor for the Grand Canyon FFA chapter at Wellsboro High school, spoke about the importance of raising animals and being a part of the FFA.
“This is a great project for them to participate in to see if they may be interested in an agricultural field when they grow up. They are exposed to a lot of career areas by being involved in the FFA.

Kaycee Kaltenbach and her goat placed first in the showmanship competition. “Goats are so friendly and they are so fun to work with,” Kaltenbach said. Kailyn Judlin has been showing goats at the fair for six years. “My family has goats. I have always liked goats and they are all unique,” Judlin said. Emily Starkweather’s family owns goats and her older sister always showed goat so she figured “Why not give it a try myself.”
