(Continued)

BUFFALO —

He coached 14 All-Americans in soccer and 50 of his young men earned All-New York State honors. He also produced two All-American baseball players and nine of his diamond men signed professional contracts.
Fred found his greatest success on the soccer pitch posting 150 wins and 24 ties in 22 years on the job.
In 1965 the Bengals became the first collegiate soccer team in the Buffalo area to compete in an NCAA tournament, while his 1970 team posted an undefeated mark of 13-0-2 and was ranked No. 7 nationally among all of the 450 colleges and universities sponsoring the sport. Long-time Western New York sports fans will recall that GBSHOF inductee Randy Smith was a key member of that squad.
Fred, and his wife, Kathy, have three children and 11 grandchildren.
Art Jeziorski
Jeziorski’s bowling success spanned five decades from the 1960’s to the early 2000’s. 
His rise to prominence began in the 1960’s when he claimed three straight New York State team titles. His first title came in 1965 with Buffalo Savings Bank, followed by back-to-back titles in 1966 and 67 as part of the Simon Pure team.
In 1967 Art bowled for 10 straight weeks on the local television show “Beat the Champ,” along with five straight weeks on the “Utica Club Show.” To close out the decade Art won the Buffalo Area Bowling Council Kick-Off Bowling Tournament in 1969. 
The 70’s were Jeziorski’s most active and dominant decade and in 1978 held a Buffalo record for highest average ever attained in the summer singles league at Thruway Lanes. He also finished in the money three times at PBA tournaments.
In 1982, he was inducted into the Buffalo Bowling Association Hall of Fame, but wasn’t through yet because 19 years later, he posted the highest average (231) of any senior bowler in the world, and was named the Tonawanda Bowling Association Bowler of the Year.
