Diesel Pete, Rest In Peace

Pete Duranko has died from ALS.

Diesel Pete made this college freshman think that national championships were the normal part of a college football experience. Many years later he showed this ALS advocate the meaning of courage when facing this beast of a disease.

Another of our best and brightest has been taken. When will we stop this madness?
