Butch Boslego was the stuff legends were made of. Always an adventurer he served in the Army in Mexico from 1915 to 1920. After his discharge he became a professional boxer. Although no records are available “old timers” speak of him as a crown pleaser and tough puncher. He played professionally with the Pottsville Maroons, whose exploits as pioneers in a league which is now the NFL, are documented in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Boslego was a member of the Maroon team which is recognized as League Champion in the Hall.
