 /  Don Bosco 1970 Football
Catholic Conference Champions

Coach Haluska earned his final title at the helm, capturing the crown for the fifth time in seven years. Bosco opened up the season with a scoreless tie and were topped by Marquette, 12-5, finishing with a 7-1-1 mark. Quarterback Jeff Barber led this balanced offensive attack which shut out Catholic Memorial, 29-0, and outscored all its foes, 178-52. This was a solid team led by First Team All-State running back Don Sager and linebacker Mark Giorgi. They were joined on the All-Conference team by ends Dave Russell, Mark (Buck) Rogers, and dual-purpose lineman Tom Rozina. These gritty Dons scored first (on a Barber to Russell bomb), but lost the State title to Green Bay Premontre, 36-16. Size was most definitely a factor as Premontre’s line averaged 246 pounds, which was comparable to the Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin Badgers that year.
