March 23 – Happy Birthday T.J. Czeski

There have been some memorable quarterbacks who’ve played for Amsterdam Rugged Ram football teams over the years. I can remember as far back as Mike Krochina and Jerry Pepe from the mid 1960s. There was also the gifted Buddy Flesh, present day Yankee coach Gary Tuck and the very talented Frank Pozniak in the seventies. Dickie Peters was a solid signal caller for Amsterdam in the mid-eighties and more recently, guys like Chris Covell, Brendan Cudmore, and Matt Agresta carried on the tradition. My pick as the best AHS QB I ever saw play had been Brian Bonanno. He had all the weapons and was so good under pressure. He ran the offense for those great Justice Smith-led Amsterdam teams in the late 1980’s.

But then number 17 came along…
