In an effort to provide the most accurate and comprehensive information possible, Prep Hoops has surveyed all 134 WPIAL Head Coaches. In addition, we have received input from Assistant Coaches, Athletic Directors, and our network of scouts. The results are being featured over six weeks.  We continue this week with the top WPIAL players in Class 5A. Class 5A consists of 26 Teams, divided into 4 sections. Out of the nearly 300 (5A) players, here are our "Fantastic Five."
