Spach's the Man
Former Fresno State tight end/H-back Stephen Spach is making a name for himself with the Philadelphia Eagles. Spach, a former walk on from Clovis, only caught 38 passes in his 39 career games. Although, he was a minimal role player with Fresno State, his name will live on in Bulldog lore. Like Vince Wesson in California Bowl II, Stephen Spach made one of the most memorable touchdown catches ever in Fresno State history against Virginia in the 2004 MPC Computers Bowl.
Philadelphia head coach Andy Reid likes to use two tight ends in his West Coast offense, so there is a good chance Spach will be an Eagle this year. Hats off to Pat Hill, once again, molding a local talent from walk on to NFL player. If local stars have not taken notice, yet, Hill's program has produced 10 of the 14 valley players drafted since 1997.
