Athletic Hall of Fame Seeking Nominations for Class of 2022

After making its long-awaited return in 2021, the De La Salle Collegiate Athletic Hall of Fame will induct another class in the fall of 2022. 

Four individuals and a championship-winning team from the school are set to be enshrined as part of the 2022 class, which will be the seventh in school history. The induction ceremony will take place on Saturday, September 17, at 5 p.m., on the Warren-based campus of De La Salle to conclude Hall of Fame weekend. 

The Hall of Fame weekend will kick off with an all-school Mass Friday, September 16, and be followed by a varsity football game against Birmingham Brother Rice in the evening (7 p.m. start), at Tom Adams Field on the campus of Wayne State University. 

Nominations for individuals and teams are now being accepted by the DLS Athletic Department. To submit an individual or team to the nominating committee, please FILL OUT THE NOMINATION FORM no later than May 1, 2022. 

Please be aware that a nomination does not guarantee enshrinement for any individual inductee or team into the 2022 De La Salle Collegiate Athletic Hall of Fame class. All nominations will be under review from the Hall of Fame committee before a final list is selected. 

This year’s group of inductees will follow an illustrious 2021 class that featured De La Salle President Br. Robert Carnaghi, St. Joe's '48, renowned medical surgeon Dr. Charles Lucas, '55, Catholic League Hall of Famer Vincent Thomas, '96, ex-Michigan football player and three-time Big Ten champion Mark Torzy, '75, Stanley Cup champion Craig Wolanin, '85, and the 2000 state championship baseball team. 

The inaugural class was inducted in 2000 and featured the likes of longtime athletic director and school administrator Br. George Synan, Super Bowl champion Chris Godfrey, ‘76, and the 1956 Catholic and city championship football team.
