In Luke 7, we read of the faith of the centuries whose servant Christ healed.  Is there any tradition in the church that he is the same centurion who was present at the Crucifixion?

The centurion in the crucifixion is St. Longinus, I can't find anything relating him to the one in Luke 7. Actually, I never found anything at all about the latter, whom for some reason I believed to have learned to be St. Cornelius.

He was Ernest Borgnine.  ;)    Really, I do not know.  There were a considerable number of centurions around.

Of course. I was just thinking that it wouldn't be too much of  a leap to assume they would be one and the same.  The centurion's faith later leads him to acknowledge the man crucified before him was innocent of any crime.  However, if the tradition of the church doesn't support that, then it's a moot issue.
