North Hills run through the WPIAL this year was a strong one, lead by a veteran line that was anchored by 6-3, 300 pound OL Lirion Murtezi. He had a few offers from the likes of Towson and Seton Hill, but it was the one he announced he received just a few days ago that got him excited. That offer came from Navy.
