JOHNSTOWN — Laurel Highlands
Forest Hills
Coach: Jason Layman, 3rd year
Career record: 24-10
District/Class: 6-AA
2012 record:  12-5
Letterwinners: 4
Coach’s outlook: “Last year was the second year in a row that we have finished the District 6 runner-up. For the past two years, we have been ranked No. 1 in District 6-AA and received a bye the first round of playoffs and a straight shot to the championship game. We have fallen short both years, but this year we look to overcome that obstacle. The team has put in a lot of effort and time over the off-season by playing in numerous outdoor leagues in Johnstown and Altoona. The players on the team this year have shown the most dedication and desire to the team since I have been head coach. We look to win the District 6 championship and bring it back to Forest Hills for the very first time in school history.”
