Ambridge High School compiled a 9-3-2 record
during the 1939-1941 seasons, and George Kisiday was an instrumental
part of those teams. The National Honor Society member received a
scholastic football scholarship to Duquesne University in 1941, but World War II interrupted his education. He transferred to
the Virginia Polytechnic Institute to attend Officer's Training
School and then served as a first lieutenant in the army. After the
war, George returned to college life at Columbia University,
graduating in 1949. While playing for the Lions, he recovered a
key fumble that led to an upset of the Army Cadets. After college,
George played for Buffalo in the All American Football Association.
Upon his retirement from the gridiron, he taught and coached at
North Catholic High School in Pittsburgh and also served as
recreation director. He was inducted into the Ambridge Hall of Fame
in 1989. George died in 1970.
