Where are they now?: Mike Caputo



Mike Caputo began his redshirt junior year at the University of Wisconsin with an impressive performance on national television.

Caputo, the 2009 Post-Gazette player of the year at West Allegheny High School, had a team-high 15 tackles in the Badgers' 28-24 loss to LSU last Saturday night. A starting safety, Caputo had six solo tackles, recovered a fumble and broke up a pass.

Caputo is coming off a sophomore season in which he started 12 games and was second on the team in tackles with 63.

* This season, Caputo is one of two former WPIAL products starting on Wisconsin's defense. Arthur Goldberg, a redshirt sophomore from Mt. Lebanon, started at nose guard against LSU and had five tackles.

* In his first college game, Toledo freshman Terry Swanson, an Aliquippa graduate, rushed for 45 yards on six carries in a 54-20 victory against New Hampshire.

* Frannie Crouse finished her career at Greensburg Central Catholic last season as the WPIAL's all-time leading goal scorer. Apparently, she still has a nose for the net in college. Crouse is starting as a freshman at Penn State and scored the only goal in the Nittany Lions' 1-0 victory against West Virginia to open the season.
