Early years

Pasquariello authored an impressive record during his gridiron career, beginning at Everett High School where he was named "all-scholastic" in 1944.

College career

Pasquariello served in the US Army during World War II before attending Villanova University. He was a record setting fullback for Villanova from 1946 to 1949. During that four year period, Villanova won 28 games, lost only 10 and tied 2. Pasquariello set a record for most carries with 380 and was second in individual career rushing with 1815 net yards gained. Also during his college career, he played in the Great Lakes Bowl, was named to six all-star teams, including the All-America College Selection in 1948 and 1949, the All-American Catholic and All-East elevens, and the Associated Press All-Pennsylvania team. In 1949, he scored the winning touchdown in the North-South game, and was given the M.V.P. award.

Professional

His talents spread to the pro circuit, playing fullback for the Los Angeles Rams. Pasquariello was the first round draft pick for the Rams in 1950. He later spent two years with the Chicago Cardinals (1951-1952).

Honors

The Annual Ralph Pasquariello Award, established in his honor by the Villanova Club of Boston, is given to the outstanding backfield performer in the Villanova-Boston College game.

In 1981, he was honored by being inducted into the Villanova University Varsity Club (Villanova University Hall of Fame).
