Bob Liggett

Football ∙ Aliquippa

 

 

 

 

One Beaver Countian who didn't give up on the Pittsburgh Maulers was Bob Liggett, the former Aliquippa High School and University of Nebraska tackle. Bob was a member of Aliquippa High School’s 1964 WPIAL football championship team, earned three letters in football, and also set a school record in the shot put during his senior year. After graduating from high school in 1965, Bob played his college football at the University of Nebraska under Coach Bob Devaney. As a Cornhusker, Bob played in the 1966 Sugar Bowl, the 1969 Sun Bowl, and the Blue-Gray and Coaches’ All American All Star games, but his brief professional career was cut short by a serious ankle injury after one season with the Kansas City Chiefs under Coach Hank Stram and another season in the Canadian Football League with the British Columbia Lions. Bob was inducted into the Aliquippa Sports Hall of Fame in 1979. After his football career, Bob served as head supervisor of the Oakdale Intensive Treatment Unit, a branch of the Youth Development Center with headquarters in New Castle.
