Remembering Venango Catholic/St. Joseph
St. Joseph -- aka the "Irish," the "Hilltoppers" and the "Joes" and located on Oil City's North side, fielded a team from 1931-61 before the school evolved into Venango Christian (now Catholic). VC dropped football after the 1988 season. VC students now play football under a co-op agreement with Oil City.
Tom O'Connor threw for 966 yards in 1971 and holds the VC career passing yardage record with 1,547.
