BTW, I'm going out tonight and purchasing a Trai Essex jersey.
LOL....I think they pay YOU to take those jerseys.

I graduated from Pine-Richland HS with Capizzi. Was a big kid even back then... played football and basketball.

To answer ShutDown24's question, Capizzi originally went to Pitt on an athletic scholarship. From what I heard, and this is only rumor as far as I know, the reason we ended up at IUP is that he got cut. Then-coach Walt Harris had a strict discipline rule. The rumor is that Capizzi got busted for public urination, and that was enough for Harris to cut him.

Ed.B. of the P-G said in his chat today the Browns did not sign him

Ed, what happened to Jason Capizzi? Has he been picked up by anyone and do you think he could have been the future LT of the Steelers down the road?

Ed Bouchette: There was a report that Capizzi was picked up by Cleveland on practice squad, but that turned out not to be true. Capizzi would have been on the Steelers practice squad had they not signed Rossum. That started a domino effect that knocked Marvin Philip off the 53-man roster onto the practice squad, which knocked Capizzi off the practice squad.
