PORTCHESTER, N.Y. -- Happy Birthday to Port Chester’s Sebastian Paul Costa!

Sebastian Paul Costa, who was born in Port Chester, turns 74 Monday.

Costa, a retired football tight end, was born Dec. 7, 1941. He played college football for the University of Notre Dame. The American Football League's Kansas City Chiefs drafted him in his junior year, 1964, and he was traded to the AFL's Buffalo Bills for the 1965 season. As a rookie, Costa averaged 19.1 yards per catch. For his career, he averaged 16.7 yards per catch.

In Costa's fifth year in pro football, he moved to offensive tackle and played that position for four years. After playing eight years for the Bills, he retired for one year, then came out of retirement to play for the Birmingham Americans of the World Football League in 1974 and Birmingham Vulcans in 1975.

Costa has a bachelor's degree in communications from Notre Dame. He also has a master's degree and doctorate from the California Graduate School of Theology. Costa has been in full-time ministry since retiring. He was a pastor for 16 years, but now travels nationally and internationally as a speaker in churches, conferences, and schools. He co-authored with John Kelly "End Time Warriors," published by Regal Book.
