The 1978 St. Stephen’s team went undefeated and Meloni told the Washingtonian that the entire team has been inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame.  He goes on to say in the story that being the quarterback of an undefeated team taught him a great life lesson.  Meloni told the Washingtonian, “I literally can do anything I put my mind to.”
