The Altoona Mirror

Name: Tim Rigby

Age: 54

Residence: Johnstown

High school: Ferndale

College: Pitt-Johnstown

My favorite sport: Basketball

I usually attend games with: My son, Sean

Favorite high school team: Once a Yellow Jacket, always a Yellow Jacket despite some lean years

Favorite college team: Pitt

Favorite pro team: Steelers

My favorite sports memory: Going with my dad to watch the Pirates at Forbes Field

The local athlete I've most enjoyed watching while growing up: Johnstown's Don Maser

My all-time favorite local coach: Ernie Fetzer

The most famous athlete I ever met: Arnold Palmer

My most prized autograph or picture is of: A Bart Starr personally autographed football

If I have a claim to fame as a fan, it would be: After Eric Dickerson dropped his Sharpie while signing autographs at an airport, I picked it up and handed it to him. He looked at me and said, "Thanks."

If I were the boss of local sports, the one rule I would enforce would be: If the PIAA doesn't wake up and separate private and public schools in the playoffs, I would have all AA and A schools secede from the PIAA and form the Pennsylvania Small Public Schools Association, the PSPSA.
