Nicholas Albert Giaquinto (born April 4, 1955 in Bridgeport, Connecticut) is a former American football running back in the National Football League for the Miami Dolphins and the Washington Redskins, where head coach Joe Gibbs nicknamed him "The Trashman" for his ability to fill many roles on the team.[1] During the 1983 season, Giaquinto played as the first H-Back in NFL history.[2] He played in the 1982 and 1983 Super Bowls with the Redskins and retired after the 1983 season, ending his four-year NFL career. He played college football at the University of Connecticut and the University of Bridgeport. He holds the single-game rushing record at UConn of 277 yards, set in a 1976 game against Holy Cross. He attended Stratford High School in Stratford, Connecticut where he was an All-State and National High School All American selection in football.

Currently, Giaquinto is the head baseball coach at Sacred Heart University in Connecticut, a position he has held since prior to the 1989 season.[3]
