Paul “Duts” Danilo

A forward who played for a series of outstanding Pittsburgh-area teams from 1937 through 1952.

Perhaps Danilo’s most famous achievement was as a star of the Pittsburgh Indians team that won the North American Soccer Football League title in 1947, beating Toronto in the final. He also had played for the same team in 1946, when it was called the Pittsburgh Strassers and was sponsored by the jeweler who had sponsored the Morgan Strasser team that reached U.S. Open Cup finals in 1943 and 1944. Danilo, who was born in the town of Morgan, played a number of seasons for Morgan and Heidelberg in Pittsburgh-area leagues, and scored the winning goal for Morgan in the 1940 National Amateur Cup final.

Inducted in 1997.
