Rev. Eugene Brissette, S.J.

Perhaps no one was more visible for more seasons on the sideline than the Rev. Eugene Brissette.

Fr. Brissette was a teacher and administrator at Fairfield Prep from 1956-1992, but he also served as chaplain for the football team during the tenure of both AHOF coaches: the late Joe Brosley and the late Earl Lavery.

Illness forced Fr. Brissette to the sidelines in the early 1990s and he passed away after a long illness in 2002. The school honored his memory by naming its new athletic center after him.
