Steve  Biale

Biale enjoyed a successful career on the Lafayette football team. The offensive guard was co-captain in 1981, which was Russo's first year at the helm of the program. With Biale anchoring the offensive line, the 1981 team made a dramatic transformation from a 3-7 record in 1980 to finish with a 9-2 mark the following year. The Leopards received a final No. 8 Division I-AA ranking and the No. 3 spot in the Lambert Cup while Biale earned All-ECAC First Team honors and was named to the Associated Press' All-America honorable mention team.

The Leopards averaged nearly 400 yards of offense and 27.3 points per game with Biale on offense. He was the 1981 Lafayette Lineman of the Year and the recipient of the G. Herbert McCracken Leadership Award.

Biale continued his football career upon graduation from Lafayette, signing with the Dallas Cowboys as a rookie free agent. He later played for the Arizona Wranglers of the USFL. Currently, Biale is the President of Euro RSCG's new pharmaceutical products agency following the sale of his previous company, Hurd Studios, Inc., to the Grey Healthcare Group (a WPP Company).

Biale, who resides in Franklin Lakes, N.J., has three daughters: Alexa (17), Hannah (13) and Olivia (9). He is married to Nan-Kirsten Forte, currently the Executive Vice President of WebMD and Editor in Chief of WebMD Magazine.
