    Athletic Hall of Fame

    Nomination Information

    Outstanding athletes, coaches and special, involved individuals are an inspiration and a source of pride to youngsters, students and adults throughout the school district and community. Unfortunately, the school district employs no sports historian and Cardinal sports greats and special individuals may be forgotten all too soon.

    In 2004, the Pocono Mountain East All-Sports Booster Club initiated the Pocono Mountain Cardinal Athletic Hall of Fame to recognize those truly outstanding individuals who are deserving of being selected in the Pocono Mountain Athletic Hall of Fame based upon their achievements in athletics, coaching or support of PM Cardinal athletics.

    Selection to the Pocono Mountain Cardinal Athletic Hall of Fame depends upon accurate and complete information provided by friends, family members or even the nominee themselves.
