Joe Bendel reports that former Sto-Rox football star Chuck Fusina is leading a fundraising effort to build a multi-use artificial field at his alma mater.
"From finishing as a Heisman Trophy runner-up to starring in the now-defunct United States Football League to currently operating a thriving business, Chuck Fusina has never forgotten his McKees Rocks roots.
That's why this former quarterback is spearheading a fundraising effort to raise $600,000 to build a multi-use artificial turf field to replace the grass surface at his alma mater, Sto-Rox High School.
"This means a lot to me, means a lot to many of us," this 1975 Sto-Rox graduate said.
That Fusina is approaching this project with the same passion and fervor that helped him lead Penn State to a 29-3 record as a starter and the Philadelphia/Baltimore Stars to USFL titles in 1984 and 1985, should come as no surprise to those who knew him as a McKees Rocks youth."
