Portville Central School to Start Athletic Hall of Fame

With the financial support of the Sports Boosters organization, Portville Central School is developing an Athletic Hall of Fame with the first inductees to be inducted at half time of the first home football game in September of 2011. Its purpose is to recognize the accomplishments of the inductees and develop pride in Portville’s rich athletic tradition along with recognizing individuals who have demonstrated both in school and in succeeding years, the worth of athletics, who have well-defined goals, provided leadership, and who have had an impact on society.

Honorees may be coaches, athletes (male or female) and boosters who have provided meritorious service.

Selection criteria includes:

  1. For athletes, a 15-year waiting period from the time they graduate. For coaches/boosters, a 15- year waiting period from initial contributions to Portville athletics.

  2. Those that have achieved success as an athlete or as a coach or booster during their tenure at Portville Central School.

  3. Noteworthy accomplishments as a citizen will be considered. Considerations will be based on post-high school contributions such as: athletics, career field, community service, or politics.
