Charles "Chic" Chiccino


TE - Chic Chiccino.jpg

Chic was a member of the last graduating class of Tredyffrin-Easttown High School.  He captained the Bulldogs to the 1954 Ches-Mont title for head coach Ernie Meyer. Chic was an all-state fullback, a guard in basketball, and a catcher in baseball, earning nine varsity letters.  Chic accomplished this while being a member of the National Honor Society and class president.


He went on to be a two-way star (fullback and linebacker) for Glenn Killinger’s teams at West Chester.  His four-year college stint was described as the greatest era in West Chester football history with a 31-5 record and an undefeated season in 1957.


Chic had a 35-year teaching career and was the Downingtown head football coach for 13 years.  Chic was twice named Ches-Mont Coach of the Year.  His accomplishments through the years have earned him a place in the T/E Conestoga High School Hall of Fame, the Chester County Sports Hall of Fame, the Delaware County Chapter of the PA Sports Hall of Fame, and the West Chester University Killinger Hall of Fame.


Chic was someone who always believed in the T/E Conestoga Football Association’s mission, and what it accomplishes for kids.  He served two terms as President and six years as treasurer.


Unfortunately, after a brief bout with cancer, Chic died in November of 2016.  His friends and family wanted to honor him and his steadfast belief in the student-athlete by contributing to this Association’s scholarship fund.   The award is to be given to a senior who has demonstrated excellence in the classroom and on the athletic fields and who has inspired his peers to attain distinction during their high school years and beyond.
