3 State Passing records for Chad Kroell
In the above '94 Team photo Chad is 2nd Row, dead center and just behind Coach Janocko.
He is wearing his #4 jersey, the number also worn by his three nephews, the Lezzer
brothers; Jake currently and in the recent past by Ryan and Christian.
1994 was Coach Janocko's tenth season. Even then Coach had accrued the most
years as Bison Head Coach but which pales compared to his current thirty-three.
In his first nine years Coach had achieved a record of 54-41-3 ( .551 )
but had also suffered three losing seasons. The Bison had been to the
post-season before, losing both times ('92 and '93) to Du Bois and 1994
would be the first for them to escape the first round. That year they
beat Punxsutawney (33-10) to claim d9 Honors and State College (35-14) in
the PIAA first round before succumbing to Erie Central in PIAA quarters.
1994's .923 was the best record since 1955's undefeated year though
the .909 (10-1) of 1989 was none too shabby either.
Though the Bison would suffer a few more inglorious seasons in the
years to come, a case could probably be made that 1994 was the
beginning of the team's climb to near dynasty status, the modern
era W/L % as of the end of the 2016 season at .704
