Pat Bisceglia Passes Away

Feb. 11, 2009

Notre Dame, Ind - Pat Bisceglia, a three-time monogram winner in football passed away Feb. 7 in Shrewsbury, Mass., at the home of his son John, surrounded by family and friends. He was 78 years old.

Bisceglia played linebacker and guard for the Irish from 1953-55. He earned first team All-American in '55 from the Associated Press, second-team honors from The Sporting News and third-team recognition from United Press.

In 1956, Bisceglia graduated from Notre Dame with a bachelor's degree in business. That spring he was selected in the 29th round by the Washington Redskins in the NFL Draft. He never played for the Redskins, instead opting to play professionally with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Big Four Football Union. After two seasons with the Alouettes, Bisceglia retired because of shoulder injuries.

Once his football career was complete, Bisceglia spent 35 years working for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Environmental Management, Division Forests and Parks. In 1992, he retired as the chief of fire control.

The Irish finished a combined 26-3-1 in the three seasons he lettered, as Notre Dame in the final AP standings ended up second in '53, fourth in '54 and ninth in '55.

Bisceglia is survived by his three sons, and their four grandchildren. Two of his brothers and two of his sisters also survive him.
