Paul Bischoff

Football ∙ Beaver Falls

 

 

 

 

If you ask Paul Bischoff to name the highlight of his athletic career, he would instantly reply “1952”: there were so many memorable events for the Beaver Falls native that year that he couldn’t omit anything. Paul was captain of the West Virginia University football team as an end in 1952 and was elected to the All Southern Conference team, the All American Academic team, and the Paramount News All American team that season. He also was named the amateur athlete of West Virginia in 1952 and was elected president of the WVU student body, an honor he cherishes as much as any athletic award. To top off his 1952 achievements, Paul played his finest clutch game of the season when the underdog Mounties upset Pitt, 16-0, at Pitt Stadium. Prior to his college career, Paul earned two football letters in three varsity seasons at Beaver Falls High School and also lettered twice in basketball and once in baseball. After his college playing days, Paul was an assistant football coach at Beaver High School from 1957 to 1962 and helped develop the strong Bobcat teams of those years. He also served as an assistant grid coach at Geneva College (1962-1963) before assuming duties as Student Center director, Campus Programs chairman, and Placement Director.
