JOHN, JOE and JEFF DETZI
WIND GAP, PA.
Identical triplets born eight minutes apart, the Detzis, 21, are juniors on the East Stroudsburg (Pa.) State football team, which opened the season last week with a 17-3 victory over Montclair State. Since they made the team as freshmen, the Division II school has had a 20-0-1 record and is the only NCAA team to be unbeaten in the last two years. Offensive Tackle Jeff, the "baby" although he is 6'2" and 230 pounds, and Inside Linebacker Joe (6'1", 210) both made the All-Pennsylvania Conference East second team in 1976. This year John, the eldest (6'2", 227), who lettered as an outside linebacker as a sophomore, has switched to center. In addition to the triplets, the Warriors field identical twins and two other sets of brothers.
