High School Football America Radio Show – May 31, 2012

Erin DiMeglio of South Plantation High School in Florida joins High School Football America host Jeff Fisher to talk about her goal of becoming a quarterback on the boys’ football team. She’s already the QB of her school’s girls’ flag football squad.

Then Fisher talks with Chris Tripucka about the growth of the Allen Eagles football program in Texas. Tripucka, who owns Eagle Designs, a clothing and souvenir shop near the school’s new $60 million stadium, talks about his son Shane, who is the top ranked punter in the state, plus reminisces about his famous family that includes father Frank, who played quarterback for the Denver Broncos and in the NFL and his brother Kelly, who played in the NBA with the Detroit Pistons.

Tripucka, who played college football at Boston College, shares a wonderful story about Peyton Manning, who personally called his father to ask if he could wear the elder Tripucka’s retired #18 jersey this year in Denver.  All six of the Tripucka boys played college sports.
