I was with Joe when he met his wife from Story City Iowa..I loved Joe,Jackie sherill and Johnny majors all the coaches at Iowa State..the entire staff went on to my home town Pittsburgh and they made history with players such as Tony Dorset and Dan Marino..Joe was one of a kind..I met his folks from Florida and was on the sidelines at Iowa State with Joe and the team..I would sing the opening and the Iowa State fight song with the marching band on the field at half time..It was a wonderful time in my life meeting Joe and his wife...One thing you may not know..We all would go to movies together and we saw 'Play Misty for me"...that knief scene drove him crazy...but a good memory for me..everytime he would come see me at the Ramada inn on Duff street I would play misty on the piano..I MISS JOE..RIP JOE.....we all loved you....and you always reminded me of the man "Rocky" on the screen.....God bless..I just found this place after all these years...

I followed the 'boys since '71 and don't recall being a "fan" of many assistant coaches on any team, but I was a fan of Joe Avezzano. He brought production to special teams and was an admirable character and figure. I missed him when he left Dallas and was sad to see he had passed.
