Among the many items that the Donora Historical Society has in its collection are 125 football and basketball games of Mon Valley teams from 1955 to 1979. They are original 16mm game films that are in the process of being converted to DVD. There is no sound. We launched a project in 2015 to start to transfer the films to DVD to not only get them in a usable format to be added to our artifact collection and our presentation offerings, but to get these games in the hands of the players that played in them some 40 to 75 years ago.

Six of the 125 game films that we have feature Mon Valley Catholic High School, have all been converted from 16mm to DVD and are available at an affordable price. All games cost $25/game plus S&H.

At Ringgold from 1979 to 1984 he won the WPIAL championship in 1982.  Connors concluded his career at Belle Vernon Area and in 1989 made it to the semifinals losing to Aliquippa 14-7.
