The Belle Vernon Area Mon Valley football dynasty began with coach Jeff Petrucci’s 1978 and 1979 Big 10 conference championship teams.

“We never lost a conference game,” recalled the BVA Hall of Fame coach. 

Three of those BVA Football Hall of Fame players, offensive/defensive tackle Bill Contz, Halfback Jim Schivley, and Quarterback Dan Wassilchalk, returned to their roots to celebrate with their coach memories of over four decades ago.  The event was part of the 6th annual BVA Football Golf Outing at Cedarbrook Golf Course held on Friday, June 18, 2021.  

“I was a ten-year old BVA elementary student,” Dr. Klanchar recalls, “when coach Petrucci and his band of players walked like giants on the Leopard gridiron and made their impression. In our youth we begin dreaming about the fulfillment of our lives and those football moments helped shape the man I became. I salute these heroes from my formative past.”
