Default George Tarasovic

No one knows his name anymore. But I am proud of my Uncle. He played for the Steelers for 12 years...2nd team All-Pro in 1959.

He is still kicking. He watches every Steeler game and he is the reason I am a Steeler fan today...even though I live oh so many miles away.

I remember George very well. He and John Baker were my 2 favorite Steeler players back then.

That's too cool man! That's a pretty interesting tidbit of family history. Definitely a rare piece of history that not very many people can claim.

Here's the Wiki page for him for those who'd like to know a little more information.
