Scrapbook of Carmen Palmiero, Outstanding GHS/Penn State Athlete Who Died Too Soon

DSC_7359BROOKLAWN, NJ --Carmen Palmiero of Brooklawn was an outstanding all around athlete at Gloucester City High School in mid 1950’s. Palmiero was a  4 sport star playing Football, Basketball, Baseball and Track. Palmiero headed to Penn State after his graduation where he excelled in Basketball.

 

Tragically Palmiero and a friend died in an auto accident driving home for Christmas in his Sophomore year. We were recently provided with a copy of a scrapbook by Rose Van Eck, Carmen’s sister.

 

Hope this column provides an insight into Carmen both the man and athlete. Not sure of the Chronological order, but every  attempt was made to provide accuracy of events.

After 12 years Gloucester Catholic Rams captured the City Series, while Carmen attacks the court with a 50 point performance.  Carmen's 50 points came from 20 field goals (before the 3 point arc) and 10 foul shoots. Les Neilio a Brooklawn teammate helped propel the Lions success in the 1954 season. 

During this season Palmierio broke the single season scoring record with 343 points. Another basketball award was presented to Palmiero.
