About AAE

Our claim to fame may be the world's first aluminum rocker hurdle, invented by company founder John Marzucco in 1949 and patented in 1952, but we've developed many "firsts" through the decades.
In 1950, when collegiate hurdle star, graduate engineer, scholastic coach and AAE company founder, John Marzucco, invented and patented the first rocker hurdle, he established a philosophy of designing and building athletic equipment from the coach's point of view. AAE founder John Marzucco was such an individual. A Penn State hurdle star in the 30's, he had the misfortune of taking a nasty spill over an old-fashioned wooden hurdle in a crucial meet, costing the meet and landing him in the infirmary. During his recuperation, the notion occurred to the young engineering student that equipment designed better could prevent such injuries and actually help athletes perform better. Thus began his lifelong dedication to creating track and field equipment for safer, improved performance. Patented in 1950, the rocker hurdle has long since become a track and field staple. But its introduction was just the beginning for AAE. John soon teamed up with his nephew Tim Driscoll. AAE is proud to pick up the torch carried for so long by John Marzucco. Going back to the early days of AAE in 1950, when John Marzucco first realized that he could design a safer, more athlete-friendly hurdle, AAE has been a family - a firm on a unique mission. Today, John Marzucco's family carries on that tradition and it permeates to the entire AAE family of nearly 50 employees, many of whom have spent the majority of their careers with the company.

"The family of Tim Driscoll, the heirs to the legacy of John Marzucco, has aided the Penn Relays immensely through the years," commented Dave Johnson, Director of the Penn Relays.
Driscoll continued, "I wish my uncle [John Marzucco] could share in these accolades as well because he was the one who started it all." John Marzucco founded AAE in 1950 and was involved in the Relays as a coach, official and equipment supplier.

Accepting this posthumous award on Mr. Marzucco's behalf was his nephew and current AAE President, Tim Driscoll.
