Brian Herosian has always been a success story, exuding the attributes of character, leadership, athletic ability and achievement in his career of choice. A product of Auburn, Massachusetts, Brian went to the University Of Connecticut in 1969 becoming a two-sport star, earning regional and national level individual honors in both football and baseball while serving as captain of each squad. As a two way standout, he was a three-time All-Yankee Conference pick (1970-72) as a wide receiver in his sophomore year (1970) and as a defensive back the following two seasons (1971, 1972). Starring as a pitcher/first baseman/outfielder, Brian helped lead the Huskies to an overall record of 50-19-1, earning All-Yankee Conference, All-New England and All-East honors in the process. As a sophomore in 1971, he led the entire nation (NCAA Division 1) in earned run average (0.63) while compiling a 6-1 record and hitting .329. Between his junior and senior seasons, Brian was selected by both the Texas Rangers and the New York Yankees in the Pro Baseball Drafts, but he elected to complete his college eligibility. He finished his three-year varsity baseball career with a 14-5 pitching record and still ranks No. 1 on Connecticut’s all-time pitching shutout list with seven; No. 2 in career strikeouts with 214, and stands No. 8 on the career run average list (1.57).
