Wenatchee High School Athletic Hall of Fame

Rocky Skalisky
CLASS of 1971 Football, Baseball and Basketball ATHLETE
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.
