Silver Creek’s Al Muck has enjoyed a lifelong love affair with sports, which has provided him with a sizable collection of wonderful memories.
Muck, who was born in Buffalo in 1944, shined at Forestville High School in football, basketball and baseball. On the diamond, he posted a 9-2 record over two seasons in 1961 and 1962. He also pitched five no-hit, no-run games and averaged 15 strikeouts per contest.
Muck was the quarterback of the football team and also was the captain and high scorer on the basketball team, which earned him first-team honors in Class C in his sophomore, junior and senior years and he was named to the Sun's Southern Tier Dream Team in 1961-62.
