|5 Questions with Brian Satola
|Brian Satola played football at the University of Virginia from 1988-1991. Originally
recruited as a quarterback, Satola made a successful transition to wide receiver
during his time in Charlottesville, lettering in both his junior and senior seasons.
After serving primarily on special teams as a sophomore, Satola made an
immediate impact as a wide receiver as a junior in 1990, catching a 13-yard
touchdown pass from Shawn Moore in the season opener against Kansas. Later
that season, Satola made a key play in the Maryland game, throwing a 35-yard
touchdown pass to fellow wide receiver Derek Dooley to put the Hoos up 21-3.
As a senior in 1991, Satola was one of only two returning players to have caught a
pass the previous year. Despite playing in only six games, Satola finished with
career highs of 14 receptions (5th on the team), 205 yards (5th), and 2
touchdowns (T-4th). During Satola's four seasons, the Hoos compiled a record of
34-14-1, won an ACC championship, went to three bowl games, and were ranked
#1 in the country for three consecutive weeks.
These days, Brian is the Assistant Director at the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young
Adults. You can follow Brian on Twitter (@bsatola).
