George J. Kisiday

Football ∙ Ambridge

 

 

 

 

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.
