George Brancato--CFL player and coach, with a long resume, has died at the age of 88.

Brancato also had a stint as a HC in AUS football. He was the HC of the University of Cape Breton Capers football team. The football Capers lasted only one season as the university decided that football was too expensive for them.

George was also my phys. ed. teacher in grades 9 and 10, while he played for the Rough Riders.
