Football - 2013
Derek Fiacco played football, lacrosse and ran track at Corning East before graduating in 2005. He was a three-year letter winner in football despite missing most of his junior year due to injury. He started both ways by the end of his sophomore season and was named as the team’s Offensive MVP. He was named All-League, All-Twin Tiers, All-Section IV, was presented the coveted Dana Eckel Award, earned WETM-TV Athlete of the Week three times and was named to the Ernie Davis All-Star game. During his senior season as a running back at East, he rushed for 900 yards (8.1 yds. Per carry), scored 11 touchdowns and 12 two-point conversions along with catching 18 passes for 200 yards. But a few injuries, most notably leg injuries, prevented him from playing football at the next level. He opted to play lacrosse in college and accepted a scholarship from Siena College. After his freshman year, he transferred to RIT. However, after his sophomore season at RIT, the injury bug from his football playing days caught up with him and ended his playing career after only two seasons. He did earn lacrosse letters from both schools and graduated from RIT with a BS in Biology. He recently formed his own apparel company (Cedar Seneca LLC) with his brother Kyle.
