Hall of Fame

La Salle Academy Athletics Hall of Fame

In 1987, under the leadership of Alumni Director Brother Henry Betz, Athletic Director Bill Aberer '67, and Secretary of the La Salle Academy Alumni Board of Governors Bob Welsh '55, the Athletic Department of La Salle Academy established the Athletic Hall of Fame. The athletic tradition of La Salle, to say the least, has been very rich, and it is only fitting that a vehicle such as the Hall of Fame was established to recognize the accomplishments of our many fabled athletes, coaches, and moderators.
