A powerful rivalry exists between Erie Cathedral Prep and Millcreek's McDowell High School.

   Today, McDowell graduate and Pennsylvania legislator, Ryan Bizzarro, spent the morning in the stronghold of his adversaries. Actually, representative Bizzarro used the rivalry to everyone's advantage in a penny drive to benefit the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.

Long story short, Prep students raised more than $2,500 in pennies, beating McDowell this time.

Representative Bizzarro found himself in a Prep jersey to mark the occasion.
