Will be inducted:
Eric Carlson ’00 – a star of two sports in soccer and baseball, Eric still dots the prep record book. He remains in the all-time top five for attempted passes, completed passes, yards and touchdowns.
Pat Czytuck ’70 (coach) – for over 40 years Pat has been a line coach for the Ramblers, helping to generate countless college prospects as well as a formidable offense. Part of a staff who won five state championships.
Tom Dance ’04 – A success of two sports in football and track and field, Tom remains the only person in the school’s history to win an individual state championship in track and field. In fact, he’s done it twice in the 110-meter hurdles.
Jim Gemler ’98 – Named the school’s top athlete in both his junior and senior seasons, Jim distinguished himself and contributed to three sports: football, basketball and baseball.
Dorian Hager ’93 – helped kick off another era of exceptional wrestling at Prep. He won a state championship in his junior season and was on the verge of rehearsal before injury wiped him out in the title fight in 1993.
Dan Sculley ’78 – just before the Ramblers landed at Hershey, Dan led his team to the forefront in 1978. A huge presence in the paint, he averaged 16.8 points per game. His 471 points in senior remain the 12e highest in school history.
Andy Sisinni ’80 – one of the main reasons the Ramblers were able to win their first PIAA basketball championship in 1980, Andy was a force on both ends of the court. He would later play Division I at Duquesne.
1982 Football Team – this group was the third addition under Mina George, and possibly her best. Littered with Division I players, they were cheered by state and country with a 10-0 record.
Golf team 2008- this team won the preparation for its first-ever Hall of Fame State Tag Golf Championship with coach Jim Sertz and number one player Gregor Orlando.
