RIP Joe Pangrazio

Postby Gorilla '69 » Mon May 14, 2018 4:07 pm

Passed away Friday morning. Former Muskie guard, class of '68. A true character best known for throwing a crutch at a UC player during a crosstown game.

His throwing the crutch at the UC player was one of the iconic moments of my life as a sports fan (along with Bernie Carbo's play at the plate in the 1970 World Series). I can almost remember the name of the Bearcat who he nearly nailed.... Raleigh Wynn (punk).

Didn't he also play a year or two of football? I recall QB Carroll Williams (a greatly underappreciated player) played a year or two of basketball.

He was an all state qb in high school, maybe player of the year in lower division, but didn't play at X. Went to Tennessee for a year and transferred.
I don't remember Williams playing bball. He and Danny A were a great combo.
