FRANCO HARRIS (b. 1950), the 1972 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, was a Hall of Fame running back who ran for over 1,000 yards in a season eight times and rushed for 12,120 yards in 13 years. He led the Pittsburgh Steelers to four Super Bowl titles. He also caught and carried the "Immaculate Reception" pass during the 1972 playoff against the Oakland Raiders. He appeared in 8 Pro Bowls and was MVP of Super Bowl IX. WILLIE BUCHANON (b. 1950), NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, played 10 NFL seasons as a cornerback for the Green Bay Packers and San Diego Chargers, intercepting 28 passes and recovering 15 fumbles. He is enshrined in the Packers Hall of Fame and was named to the Charger's 50th anniversary team. CHESTER MARCOL, born in Poland in 1949, used his soccer kicking skills to become an NFL All-Pro placekicker with the Green Bay Packers (1972-1980). He was the NFC (Conference) Rookie of the Year in 1972. Marcol's career was cut short by substance abuse, a topic he addressed in his book Alive and Kicking. TOM CASANOVA (b. 1950) was a strong safety for the Cincinnati Bengals (1972-1977), and a 4-time Pro Bowl selection. He returned to Louisiana, where he had starred for LSU, became an ophthalmologist, and served in the State Senate. JEFF KINNEY (b. 1949) was an NFL running back, mostly with the Kansas City Chiefs, from 1972 through 1976, but his greatest football achievements came as tailback for the national championship Nebraska Cornhuskers of 1971 and 1972, scoring four touchdowns in the "Game of the Century" against the Oklahoma Sooners. WALT PATULSKI (b. 1950) was an NFL defensive end from 1972 through 1977, playing all but his final season with the Buffalo Bills. His alma mater, Notre Dame, named him to its All-Century team. MIKE SIANI (b. 1950), who went directly from high school to the NFL, played 9 seasons as a wide receiver for the Oakland Raiders and Baltimore Colts. He is now head coach of the Richmond Raiders of the American Indoor Football League. JIM BERTELSEN (b. 1950) was a running back for the Los Angeles Rams (1972-1976), once a Pro Bowl selection. In college, he starred for the national championship Texas Longhorns of 1969. ED MARINARO (b. 1950) was an NFL running back for the Vikings, Jets and Seahawks from 1972 to 1977, and then turned his talents to acting. He may be best remembered as Officer Joe Coffey on TV's Hill Street Blues (1981-1986), and has guest starred on several series. JOHN REAVES (b. 1950) was a quarterback in the NFL for 11 seasons, and in the United States Football League for 3. Mainly a backup for 5 NFL teams, he compiled over 10,000 yards as a USFL starter.
