RAY

JOE, YOU DID NOT MENTION THAT YOUR FRIEND AND MINE, JOHN SENESKY, WAS ALSO AN IMPORTANT MEMBER OF THAT BACK FIELD WITH LUZZI AND LATORE. HE HAD A HISTORY THAT IS WORTH WRITING ABOUT.

Joe C.

Ray, yes, our old buddy John Senesky made that backfield even more special. He was the "Junior Sensation" of that #2 ranked team, but best of all, he was your best friend and mine...and still is. His own impact on Belleville (NJ) football is immeasureable, as he led the kids he coached from the seventies to the nineties to victories on and off the field. And then our friend received his dream job at the young age of 60 to lead the Trojans of Castle Park (San Diego, California). Now, retired again, he finished with a 7-4 record this year, with lots of memories, his Beach Boy albums in tack, his wonderful wife Carmela still at his side, his son Danny Commander of one of the US Navy's finest ships, his son Michael still holding down the fort in Jersey, and his two grandsons grateful they have such a wonderful God-fearing man for a Grandpa.

And Ray, the best to you and the girls. How can we forget your own impact on Belleville baseball back in the sixties.

I was 10 years old watching that 1962 team. It's great you bring back the memories of an era we will never see again. God bless you and the members of that team.

Dom, it was a magical fall of 1962. I suppose it proved to the state that the Belleville kids could play championship football. The senior class was so special, led by the likes of Latore, Luzzi, Pomponio, Byers, Zinna, Zarro, Horvath, Tomaczeski, Bade, McGowen, Orsini, Recsiniti, Valese, and a couple others ... I have to go back to the program. Richie Luzzi and Bobbie Byers are now gone, as is Ken Zarro. The Juniors and Sophs special too. We will write more about it in the future. In meantime, thanks for writing... and may only good thoughts arise when you look back, ... glancing and not staring.
