Williamsport coach Charles Crews on Fagnano: “Joe was able to do the impossible in any athlete’s career. He stepped in and filled the shoes of an all-time great and succeed! Joe followed the career of the school’s all time leader in all passing categories and an all-state performer. He acquitted himself by earning all state honors himself and breaking several of his predecessors records in the process. Joe’s success was only a surprise to people outside of the program. We knew he was a stud in waiting. Joe’s work ethic and stoic leadership made him the most popular man on the team and a fan favorite. Keep an eye on this young man, the best is yet to come!”
