No. 1 Penn Hills Lets Win Do All the Talking


Crickets.

That's all you'll hear from the Penn Hills boys basketball team after games. The school district has forbidden coach Dan DeRose or any players from talking to the media after contests.

Penn Hills athletic director Stephanie Strauss said the district has decided not to have DeRose or players talk to reporters after games. She said it's because of what happened after last season, when the WPIAL ordered Penn Hills to suspend DeRose for the first four games of this season because of the way he and his team behaved after a WPIAL playoff loss against North Hills. …
