Vince Cechini was an all around athlete who starred in three sports at Bennett in the early 50’s, earning letters in football, basketball, and track. His main sport was football, a sport in which the powerful running back literally bowled over opposing linemen. He was the All-High fullback in both his junior and senior seasons in the Buffalo Evening News and Courier Express- an incredible accomplishment. Cechini was co-captain of the 1952 Harvard Cup champion Tigers.

He lettered three years in track where he was a high jumper. He also played varsity basketball during his junior and senior seasons. The 1 953 basketball team was the Yale Cup champion.

After graduation he attended Syracuse University on a football scholarship. Unfortunately, his college career was cut short by a knee injury. Vince is a retired Wall Street vice president and now lives in Lakewood, New Jersey.
