Chartiers-Houston 2014 Football Preview

Written by Joe Koch on .

Ninth-year Chartiers-Houston football coach Tony Fetsko hopes new quarterback Alec Ferrari can live up to his surname when the Bucs take the field this season.

"He has athletic ability and he's intelligent," Fetsko said of the 6-foot, 180-pound senior. "He's able to make plays and use his ability to execute our offense."

Ferrari, a wide receiver two years ago, had to have a rib removed prior to last season when the rib was rubbing up against a vein.

"It's an injury more common with baseball pitchers, and he does pitch for our baseball team," Fetsko said. "He's fine now."
