||Rocky used strength and speed to excel on the gridiron and baseball diamond. He quarterbacked powerhouse football teams, setting WHS total offense records, in 1969 and '70, to earn "All-Big 8" recognition. In 1970, not only did he quarterback the state championship team, he was also named Washington's "Offensive Player of the Year" and earned a berth as the "All-State" signal caller. His prep grid career was capped by being selected as a first team "High School All-American" by Sunkist and Coach and Athlete magazine. Rocky was also a rocket armed, power-hitting baseball player who earned "All-Big 8" honors in 1970 and '71, and "All-State" in his senior year. He was the "NCW Sports Awards Athlete of the Year" in 1971.
After turning down a football scholarship to Notre Dame, Rocky signed with the Philadelphia Phillies organization. He was selected as a "Sporting News Minor League All-Star" on three occasions.
