A Way-Back Machine Quiz

In trying to come up with a suitable prize without coming up with any more personal cash, I figured a chance to fire the starting gun at the Alumni "Run" at this year's Alumni Reunion was as good as any.  I'm in the process of arranging for an "old guy's" assault on the 5 Minute Mile.  I've even arranged for the best rabbits in all the land.  They are working for "PSU is 800 U" t-shirts, so I'll throw one in for the winner of this contest also!  A prize package worth at least $9!

Who am I?

Name another Nittany Lion great who went to the same high school.

Name the movie made about the school's football team.

Name the first band he was a member of with current Velveteen Playboy Paul Souza while in Happy Valley.

Answers in the comments below. 


  1. Ricky Garcia, 'Remember the Titans' ?
    RG played QB at TC Williams


  2. I have 2 of the 4. Rick Garcia. Remember the Titans.

  3. Ted Lyon
    Rick Garcia
    Remember the Titans
    The Up

    Dave - where is my prize???


  4. Brian Boyer wins the prize! He had all 4 answers correct. (I also would have accepted Dwight Stephens as a high school teammate.) Brian will man the starters pistol at our Reunion "Run" featuring an attempt at a 50 yo 5:00 Mile complete with professional rabbits. All will be paid with "PSU is 800 U" t-shirts. Congrats to the alum with the most knowledge of PSU Track History. Bar None.

  5. How about extra credit for naming their teammate Mike Mansy who was a HS standout at TC Williams?

    I thought their first band was called the Receding Hairlines...
