SUNY Morrisville Fame to Pete Vercillo

Popular, former North High athlete, Pete Vercillo (’51) was inducted to the SUNY Morrisville Sports Wall of Fame, Class of 2005, on May 6, 2005.

            A tenacious lineman, Pete played in every game during his two years (’51 –’52) at Morrisville, on both the offensive and defensive teams. He was a key factor on the 1952 undefeated, championship Morrisville team.
