Rick O'Brien: Gonzalez to Pittsburgh?



By Rick O’Brien



            According to a source, Bethlehem Liberty football standout Anthony Gonzalez has orally committed to play for Pittsburgh.

            The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Gonzalez, a dual-threat quarterback and rugged defensive back, had also considered Florida State, Penn State, Oregon, Illinois and Missouri.

            Last year, while leading the Hurricanes to a 15-1 record and the PIAA Class AAAA state championship, Gonzalez rushed for 1,697 yards and 24 touchdowns. He completed 114 of 206 passes for 1,570 yards and 12 scores.
