History:

The Detzi triplets, Jeff, Joe, and John played for Pius X from 1971 to 1974.  All 3 went on to play at East Stroudsburg University.  Jeff a 6-2 230 lbs. offensive tackle, Joe a 6-1 210 lbs. linebacker, and John 6-2 227 lbs. center.  The Warriors finished 10-0 in 1975 and 9-0-1 in 1976.  Panther Valley grad Pete Radocha was the runningback and player of the year in both the 75 and 76 seasons.  In 1976 he became the first back at ESU to ever rush for 1,000 yards in a season (1,036).  In the 1977 season, ESU went 6-2 before winning the conference title in 1978 with a 10-1 record.  In the 4 years, the Detzi’s were in uniform for ESU, the team compiled a 35-3-1 record.  Former Catasauqua head coach and 2-year All-County player from Marian high school Bob Bydlon played at ESU in the same time frame.  Also, from 1974-1977 the qb was future longtime offensive coordinator Mike Terwilliger.  Terwilliger would throw for 3,799 yards in his career.  For the 1978 conference championship team, Catasauqua’s sophomore Barry Kennedy was the qb.  Another former Catasauqua head coach Ed Csencsits held the single-game reception record at ESU.  Csencsits caught 13 passes for 206 yards vs Edinboro in 1968.  He would hold the record for almost 30 years until Brett Witmer caught 14 passes vs Bloomsburg in 1997.  Witmer tied his record the year before when he caught 13 passes vs New Haven.
