After a tremendous amount of success at Red Shield Boys Club in three sports, Dave Pivec moved on to Patterson High School, where he earned varsity letters all four years in attendance. Pivec was All-Metro in Basketball and Football and held the single game scoring record for High School Basketball for 35 years, accomplished in 1963. As a Football player in High School, Pivec made All-Metro and was crowned Player of the Year nationally by Parade Magazine. Of the 84 College offers received, Pivec took his game to Notre Dame on a football scholarship, followed by 11 successful years in the CFL and NFL, playing most of his career for the LA Rams.
