New QB John Harper is hoping to get McKeesport’s offense off and running (PA)


For McKeesport’s triple-option offense to run effectively, it requires a quarterback who knows the system inside and out.

Coach Matt Miller believes John Harper, who’s moving from wing back to quarterback this season, fits that description. Harper will replace Jayvaun Shears, who is headed to Maine after tallying 1,198 rushing yards and 25 rushing touchdowns last season.

Harper, who posted 428 rushing yards and 3 rushing touchdowns to go with 37 tackles, 9 passes defended and 2 interceptions as a defensive back last season, will inherit the keys to an offense that has been successful for McKeesport for more than two decades.

“It’s pretty difficult,” Miller said of the offensive system. “It’s pretty intricate. I think a lot of people think you can just use it as a gimmick and put it in real fast. We do it old school. We have an assistant coach, Jamie Eckels, he brought the triple option here back in 1991 when I was playing. He’s just, like I said, it’s very, very intricate. It takes a while at the beginning. Once you get the steps down and the reads it starts to move and makes it a lot easier.”
