Ed Stavenski was a star football player at Kulpmont High School under the late Mike Terry. He earned a football scholarship to Duquesne University at a time when scholarships were given only after a tryout. After graduation from Duquesne, he returned to Kulpmont to teach.
Along with coaching football, he was asked to coach basketball and baseball, a job that took all his time. He did all this partly because it was not his custom to say “no” but mostly because of his dedication both to youth and sports. If you ever played on any of his teams there was no limit to what he would do to show his appreciation for your participation and he didn’t stop if money was involved – he spent lavishly on his boys.
After the jointure with Mount Carmel, he continued to teach and served as an assistant coach under Coach Joe Diminick.
