Commiskey was an All-USFL player with the Philadelphia/Baltimore Stars before coming to New Orleans.
Following an outstanding prep career at West Jefferson Barrios went on to star at Tulane and was inducted into the Tulane Athletic Hall of Fame in 2000. He led Tulane to an 8-4 season, including a Liberty Bowl victory, in his senior season. Barrios was named to the Associated Press All-South Independent Team all three years that he played at Tulane. He set the all-time team records for highest average gain per reception in a season (25.3 in 1970) and highest average gain per reception in a career (20.0). For nearly three decades, Barrios has served as a color analyst on Tulane football radio broadcasts.
