The Tony Sacca era happened a bit before my time on this earth, so I cannot say I am familiar with him as an athlete. All I really know about him is that he is the head coach of Burlington City High School's football team in the great state of New Jersey.
So, in researching Sacca, I had to look at his stats, which were amazing. Numerically, he went from "horrible" to "really bad" to "kinda bad" to "really good" during his four years under center at Penn State. Here's how his passing numbers looked:
- 1988: 54-for-146 (37 percent), 821 yards, 4 touchdowns, 5 interceptions
- 1989: 56-for-137 (40.9!!! percent), 694 yards, 6 touchdowns, 5 interceptions
- 1990: 122-for-249 (49 percent), 1,866 yards, 10 touchdowns, 9 interceptions
- 1991: 169-for-292 (57.9 percent), 2,488 yards, 21 touchdowns, 5 interceptions
