UVa's Rocco Appreciative of Dad's Help


With Father's Day Sunday, it's another chance for sons and daughters to thank Dad for all he's done and still does for us, let him know how special he is and how much we love him.

            Father's Day brought back thoughts of an interview a few weeks back with UVa quarterback Michael Rocco, who has high praise and gratitude for his Dad, L.C.A. head coach Frank Rocco.

Michael Rocco, VIRGINIA JUNIOR QUARTERBACK, said "He's my mentor and he's kind of encouraging me through this whole process of college because he's been there before.  He played at Penn State and he's kind of been in my footsteps.  So he's leading me and he's doing a great job of kinda being a coach and then being a dad as well.  So I mean I look up to him and I just hope that one day I can be the same kind of person and dad that he is.  And I mean I want to be a coach when I get older, too, so I'm kind of learning after him."
