Rick Migliore

Basketball ∙ Midland

The athletic successes enjoyed by Midland High School in the 1970s remain unparalleled and have become part of Western Pennsylvania sports lore. The Leopards were loaded with talent, but perhaps no star shined brighter during this era than Rick Migliore.

A sharp-shooting and nifty ball handling guard, Rick helped Midland to back-to-back WPIAL and PIAA State Championships in 1973 and 1974. With Rick in the lineup, Midland went 56-3 over that stretch, including 28-1 in his senior season when he averaged 16.6 points per game. As co-captain of the 1974 Leopards, Rick scored 29 points in the WPIAL championship game. He was named first team all section and to the second team Associated Press All State team.

But basketball wasn't his only athletic talent. In football, Rick was a fleet-footed deep threat at wide receiver for Midland, hauling in 10 touchdown catches in his senior season, which was a Midland school record. The Leopards finished 8-1-1 during Rick's senior season, where he was selected as the team's co-MVP and was later named to the all-WPIAL team.

Rick earned a total of seven letters at Midland playing basketball, football, and baseball and was named Most Athletic Senior, a great achievement considering the talent by which he was surrounded in his hometown.

Rick went on to play basketball collegiately, spending his freshman season at Roanoke before transferring to Centenary. At Roanoke, he made an immediate impact, leading the team in assists as a freshman with 117.
