Steel-High QB and Class A Player of the Year Alex Erby

Football is a family affair at Steelton-Highspire.  Twin brothers Alex and Andrew Jr. Erby are all-state selections with numerous Division I offers.  Their father, Andrew Erby, is the Rollers' head coach.  "We always talk about football. That's our life. We grew up on it," said Alex.  They even have a room in the basement of their house to watch film.  Alex Erby was named the Class A Player of the Year in Pennsylvania after passing for more than 3,400 yards last season with 40 touchdowns and just seven interceptions.  The 6'3, 210-pound southpaw has more than a dozen college offers including Pittsburgh, Temple, Maryland, Nebraska, Louisville, Duke, and several MAC schools.  Andrew Jr. is a versatile OL/DL at 6'3 and 280 pounds.  They plan on attending the same university.  "We push each other each and every day. If I see him wake up earlier than me, I get a little jealous," replied Alex.  SV Sports' Paul Roberts caught up with the standout quarterback at Wilson's 7v7 camp last week.  Alex intends on making his college decision by July 14th.  He said, "I'm trying to find a home...and try to win a national championship or conference championship, and make history."  Steel-High beat Union 22-8 in the PIAA-A championship last year.  The Rollers finished (14-1) and claimed their second state title in three seasons.  Alex is excited about their 2023 squad.  "There's no ceiling. I think we have as much talent as we ever had. I think this year will be scary. We gotta remain humble," he stated.  Alex is a three-time all-state pick.  His dad was the Class A Coach of the Year in 2022.  Andrew Erby will be part of the coaching staff for the Big 33 Football Classic in 2024.  Alex discussed what it's like to have his father as his head coach.  He also had fun talking about his favorite NFL quarterback, video games, and rappers.
