La PORTE — In the entire history of Slicers football, Dick Hostetler ranks near the top of the list as one of its best players, if not at the top.

“In football, he was pretty special,” Hostetler’s son, Rock, said. “And then, I met a couple of guys here who said there were some good athletes, but they said, ‘Your dad was probably the best they’d ever seen.’ That means a lot. And they’ve had some pretty incredible athletes here at La Porte. So to hear that, it’s pretty neat.”
