After more than 50 years between his time as a student, coach, teacher and administrator at Bishop McNamara Catholic High School, hall-of-fame football coach Rich Zinanni has coached three NFL players and won five state championships.

But in Zinanni’s opinion, it’s not any of the professional or All-American football players he coached that he thinks the best athlete to wear McNamara green and white is.

He thinks that title belongs to Sue Pressler (Collins).
