Moving Forward by Jerry Veshio


Moving Forward chronicles the unforgettable true story of the 2017 Quaker Valley High School football team. Thrust into the head coaching position only two weeks before the season, and 31 years removed from his last stint coaching the sport, Jerry Veshio guides the program to their first ever WPIAL and state championships.

Jerry Veshio spent thirty-four years as an educator in the Quaker Valley School District in Sewickley, Pennsylvania. He served as a teacher, as vice principal and acting principal at the junior high, as athletic director and varsity track and field coach at the high school, and as the PA announcer at football games. Prior to guiding the varsity football team to the first WPIAL and PIAA state championships in Quaker Valley history, Veshio had not coached the sport in more than thirty years.
