The Henry L. Sullivan, SJ Campus Center was the setting on Monday evening, March 6 for approximately 300 guests as seven individuals and one team were inducted in the 2017 Athletic Hall of Fame class.
Among the five former student athletes honored were baseball standout Bob Koraleski '44 (dec.), champion swimmer Mike Jackson '62 (dec.), pitching sensation Jim Haller '70, soccer great Joe Wieland '99 and football star Titus Adams '01. Former Prep coaches Mike Culver and Jack Jackson ’54, were honored at the event as well.
Also inducted were the members of the 1960 football team that played Central to a 0-0 tie in what is considered by many as the greatest high school football game ever played in the state of Nebraska. Both schools would go on to share the state title later that season.
