They were big, confident and successful. Rob Petko looked up to them, as only a 10-year-old ball boy can. He got to hobnob with all those players on the Servite High School football team in 1987. Guys like Derek Brown, Pat Blottiaux and Jason Frank--all future college players--would actually talk to him and treat him like an equal . Heck, even Mike Petko, his older brother, would acknowledge his presence. Yeah, Rob was a little guy, but a big shot.
