About Me

OK....this is ME! Bob LaFazia...I love the History of Delaware Football, I don't care if its sandlot, elementary, Jr. Hi, JV's, Varsity...College, Semi Pro or Pro...as long as your from Delaware, thats ALL that counts with me! If you like this, then that makes me HAPPY, if not, NO PROBLEM...everybody has their opinion! I just wanted to start something that...GULP! I know I'm not going to finish...Eventually we WILL have a "DELAWARE FOOTBALL HALL of FAME" but right now, I just want to get a feel for what you guys want...what I want is a Delaware Football Hall of Fame of just the PLAYERS that played the game...no offense to the coaches BUT...as Bear Bryant says'... QUOTE..."I never won a football game, my PLAYERS did"! I have no problem with coaches...I have lots of good friends that are coaches...but...I think they should have a Delaware Coaches Hall of Fame and we, (the players, should have a "players Hall of Fame" ...like I said, thats down the road...right now we will concentrate on ALL the guys that played football in the Great little state of DELAWARE...OK!

This is a short story about my favorite Delaware football player! His name was Jimmy Murphy, no longer with us...played with him at Wilmington High School...he was one of those guys that could out-kick, out-pass, out-catch and of course out-run you or anybody. Very gifted athlete, actually a better baseball player than football player...he was doing fine in the minors until he created some eye problems. Didn't make a lot of ALL teams, did make 1st team All County in 1948: http://www.delawareallstatefootball.com/1948.html  also made 2nd team All State...but # for #, he was one of the Best backs to come out of the state of Delaware!

R.I.P. Jimmy

About Me

Played on the 1948'49'50'51, Newark HS teams,,,, 1950 9-0-1,,1951 we were undefeated,,,,10 and 0,,,beat all the top Wilmington teams. I was a defensive right end and punted for the Yellow jackets,,,cause the fumble that led to us defeating Wilmington at Newark under the lights 13-12. Bob La Fazia ran over me a couple of times  and I considered it an honor ,as a Spohmore, to be able to play on the same field with him,,,but don't tell him. Tranfered to Elkton HS, in fall of 52" and made all state there,,, scored all the points in our 13-6 victory over Newark in 53' Played bothways for Elkton, made all state in football, basketball. Later went to Marshall U., in W.Va., on football scolarship. In 1963 Broke into Professional Wrestling,,,have been placed in the Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame here in Oregon/Washington. I think I am the only Pro wrestler ever to come out of Newark HS. Am now an ordained pastor here in SW Washington State,,, have a farm high in the Cascade range near a small logging town called Yacolt. Seems like only yesterday I was under Coach Frend Spisato and Ray Cisenski at Newark. Coach Fred should be in the Delaware HOF he deserves it,,,,he took a bunch of kids and made state champions out of them in the late 40's and early 50's and noone even gave him a glance... My pro nam is Dutch Savage,,, just type my name in on the net,,,or just look up dutchsavage.com,,,you'll be supprised what you will find on me ,,,,, Blessings, Frank Stewart.......my favorite Delaware footballer is Bob LaFzia,,(next to Bunny Blaney), because he is humble enough to put all this site together and has given so much to Delaware HS Football,,,God Bless him

About Me

I was an "East Side" brat and attended St Mary's and then "Sallies" for a couple years. I knew everything and decided the Marine Corps needed another good man. Well, they straightened me out real fast and set me on a course to better myself as a person. Finished High School thru U.S.A.F.I. and took college courses too. Didn't graduate college till I was 40 though. ( Thats another story) Became a Cop with Wilmington Police Dept. and retired afterward . Married the Love of my life and she still has me after 46 yrs .As I enter my Golden Years of retirement, there are some things I would have done differently, but for the most part, I am happy with the way things have turned out. I have some great friends and many memories. As a Marine Corps Veteran, I am so proud of our current Armed Forces who stand between us and the bad guys out there. God Bless them and may they all return home safely.

During my stay at Sallies ( 8th & West Sts, Wilmington, De. ) there were a couple who stood out and did themselves proud. Jack Strusowski, Bucky Buiano, Rocco Mumma are names I recall now from 1951 and 1952. Of course the "Team" has to be recognized as a whole because they support the "Stars".....

I knew "Googie" Patton from the East Side and served with his brother Terry Patton on the Wilmington Police Force. Both were excellent athletes. The name Jimmy Oddo also is a name from Wilmington High deserving of mention here as well. Another stalwart athlete from downstate by the name of Bunny Blaney comes to mind too.
