Robert G. Trocolor (March 31, 1917 – July 27, 1984) was an American football player and coach. He was also a college basketball and football head coach as well as movie actor.
Trocolor played college football for the
Long Island Blackbirds before transferring to play for the Alabama Crimson Tide. He then went undrafted in 1942 but eventually landed a spot with the National Football League's New York Giants, for whom he played for two seasons as a substitute quarterback, punt returner and halfback. In 1944, Trocolor was traded to the Brooklyn Tigers and played in two games. The team merged with the Boston Yanks in 1945, but Trocolor did not get picked up, so his professional football career ended after three seasons.
In 1974, Trocolor became the third head football coach in
William Paterson University Pioneers football program history. He served for just one year and compiled a 2–7 overall record (1–4 conference).
Basketball head coach Edit
Trocolor was chosen as the 12th head coach in
Stetson University's men's basketball program history. Similar to his brief stint as a college football coach, he only stayed for one year—the 1949–50 season—before moving on. In his lone season as the Hatters' head coach he compiled a 6–16 record.
In the 1953 film
, Trocolor plays himself. The movie is about a group of 18- to 22-year-old men who are trying out for a Big Leaguer Major League Baseball team, and he is one of the players.
