APB, Where are they now?

Sadly, The Varsity Club's first All Points Bulletin issued for former Windber multi-sport standout Paul Romanchock – one of this blogger's favorite high school athletes – went unanswered.

Undaunted, The Varsity Club bounces back with another.

This week's All Points Bulletin is issued for former Bedford standout Josh Baker.

In 1997, Baker earned first team Associated Press Small School (AA-A) honors as an offensive lineman. A year earlier, Baker was a third team small school as an offensive lineman.

In the 1998 Ken Lantzy game, Baker earned MVP honors as a defensive lineman.

Baker was also an accomplished wrestler. As a senior, he placed second in Class AA in the heavyweight division at the PIAA championships.


  1. I was told that Paul is a physical therapist in the area and golfs at the Windber Country Club.

  2. Thank you Anon ... He was definitely one of the best high school athletes from Somerset County I've seen in person.

  3. I'm right here...

  4. I work at Cycling Sports Group in Bedford. I have been involved with some of the arena football teams in Johnstown. I am currently working on getting all of my clearances to hopeful help with coaching here in Bedford. Thanks for the shout out..

  5. Thanks for getting back to me Josh. I appreciate it. Best of luck to you.
