The selection committee of Jerry Savage, Mark Amatucci, Bryan Moorhouse, Dan Popera, Cokey Robertson and William Wells selected 14 honorees including former players, coaches and athletic directors who have made the league one of the finest in the country.
Savage and the 14 honorees will be joined in the first class by the late Ray Mulls of Gibbons, former Mount St. Joe coach and athletic director John Plevyak Sr. and Br. D. John Smith of Calvert Hall. The 14 players, Savage, Mulls, Plevyak and Smith will be honored at the Rolling Road Country Club in Catonsville, Md., at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 19.
