Lackawanna High School Receives Golden Football for Super Bowl 50As part of the nationwide Super Bowl 50 celebration, the NFL started the Super Bowl High School Honor Roll program to acknowledge schools and communities that have directly influenced Super Bowl history and impacted the game for the better. More than 2,000 high schools and roughly 3,000 players and coaches were recognized this season.
Lackawanna High School was given a Wilson Golden Football for Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback Ron Jaworski who graduated from the school in 1969. Jaworski led Philadelphia to Super Bowl XV after the 1980 season, when he was honored as NFL Player of the Year by UPI, won the Bert Bell Award as the Maxwell Football Club’s professional player of the year, the Dunlop Award as the professional athlete of the year, and made the Pro Bowl.
Mr. Jaworski was inducted into Lackawanna’s Sports Hall of Fame with its inaugural class in 2012. The Lackawanna High School Athletic Dept. congratulates Ron Jaworski for his successes with NFL Football and other business venues.Pictured above (From left): Mike Popek (Athletic Manager), Jamal C., KeJuan H., Malik T., Jacob K., Adam Tardif (Head Football Coach)
