Loved going to Rogues games and when he saved a shot on goal the entire audience would shout " HOUSKA HOUSKA HOUSKA" as loud as they could. So sorry to hear of your passing. RIP John

Rest in Peace, my friend. Whether we were goalkeeping rivals when Towson played Loyola, or Casa Bianco teammates, I respected your immense talent, leadership and work ethic. You'll always be a Baltimore soccer legend.

Your goalkeeping brother,

Wow! Can't believe it...John and I were teammates at Loyola University and friends from day one. He believed in the Lord, himself, and all of us too! Houska used to say, "I'm the last man on defense, and the first one on offense!" His love for the game and his family, without a doubt are inspirational.
We will miss you "Housk"!

I knew John Houska, from: Lost in the 50's Diner, at 5512 Harford Road, in the Hamilton section of Baltimore, Md. Prior to the Covid Pandemic, I used to talk with John, and other regulars, while having breakfast or lunch. He usually seemed to be enthusiastic about his life. John Houska will be missed.
