In this week's "Do you remember?," Post-Gazette writer Mike White takes a look back at former Sto-Rox football star Chuck Fusina. Click here to read his story.
"Sto-Rox quarterback Lenny Williams is now the all-time leading passer in WPIAL history. He is the latest in a long line of talented quarterbacks from the school, and the line started four decades ago with Chuck Fusina.
A highly touted quarterback for Sto-Rox in the early 1970s, he finished his career with 4,316 passing yards, back when that was unheard of for a WPIAL quarterback. As a senior, he played in six games because of injuries, but still threw for 1,404 yards.
Fusina, who graduated in 1975, was a dominant two-sport athlete at Sto-Rox. Besides football, he also averaged 27 points a game in basketball as a senior.
Fusina was heavily recruited and went on to star at Penn State, where he was the runner-up for the 1978 Heisman Trophy. Fusina was the backup quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1979-81. He then became a star quarterback for the Philadelphia/Baltimore Stars in the fledgling USFL, leading his team to two league titles in three years. His final year of pro football was as a backup for the Green Bay Packers in 1986."
