Back then “grass” was still something you mowed or fed your horses, Bob Pittello was a certifiable addict. Not the dangerous kind. He was a football “junkie” who for 25 years drove 60 miles a day to coach at Susquehanna University. This was after working all day. When the Crusaders were at home Saturday, He’d rush home form their Friday evening practice change clothes and head for the Mount Carmel Stadium where He’s sit in with the Tornado Coaches during their game. Following morning He’d drive back to Susquehanna to prepare for that afternoon’s game. Busy Schedule? Sure. But they were playing a football game, and a football junkie needed a fix.

He was a pretty fair country football player too. Good enough to get into Susquehanna U’s Hall of Fame in 1970.
