BGSU's MVP Phil Villapiano NFL Hall of Fame Bid

After a successful 13-year career as a member of the Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills, former BGSU football player Phil "Foo" Villapiano is making a strong case for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. To show our support, BG Memories has collaborated with his family and supporters to create two Bowling Green State University "Foo's HoF Fighters" rally t-shirt with proceeds benefiting BGSU's Falcon Club in Phil's name in addition to a special edition Silver n’ Black rally t-shirt design.

The Falcon Club Scholarship and Success Fund gifts allow BGSU to recruit and retain the best student-athletes as we compete for championships in the MAC and WCHA, and also prepare our Falcons for success upon graduation.

Phil Villapiano Bio

Phil "Foo" Villapiano was All Mid-American Conference first team in 1969 and 1970 and was named Bowling Green's MVP in 1970 when he was also MAC co-defensive player of the year.  Bowling Green inducted Phil into its Hall of Fame in 1976 and the MAC did the same in 1992.

This incredible leader who has had a love affair with the NFL since 1971 and with football since birth, is as deserving a candidate for election into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as there ever was one. Charismatic and charming while being the consummate mayor of the league and the Oakland Raiders, Phil Villapiano's time is here.
