ABOUT THE ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME

In 2014, the St. Francis DeSales Athletic Hall of Fame was founded to honor, pay tribute and perpetuate the memory of those individuals who, through participation, have made outstanding contributions in the field of athletics and who have helped bring recognition, honor, distinction and excellence to St. Francis DeSales High School.   

St. Francis DeSales Athletic Hall of Fame recipients are chosen by a committee, who will base their selections on a level of excellence in a particular sport (e.g. captain, team MVP, All-district, All-Ohio, etc.), especially as it relates to other teammates and the level of competition during the candidate's era. Consideration is also given to candidates who participated in multiple sports during their careers, even if their level of success varied in those sports. Finally, the committee attempts to select candidates that result in a class of inductees that appropriately represent the broad range of sports at St. Francis DeSales High School.

The criteria for selection is listed below.

  • Must be a graduate of St. Francis DeSales High School (Athlete)

  • Must be a past coach at St. Francis DeSales High School (Coach)

  • Current head coaches who have coached at St. Francis DeSales for a minimum of 5 years 

  • Must be 10 years removed from high school graduation (Athlete)

  • Must have demonstrated admirable athletic performance and honors 

  • Any exceptions as determined by the committee
