SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

 

VINCE LEONETTI

 

TO BE INDUCTED INTO THE

WEST CATHOLIC SPORTS HALL OF FAME

 

ONE OF OUR OWN, FELLOW CLASSMATE VINCE LEONETTI, WILL BE INDUCTED INTO THE WEST CATHOLIC SPORTS HALL OF FAME, HONORING HIS ACHIEVEMENTS IN FOOTBALL AND TRACK.  

 

HERE IS AN EXCERPT FROM AN E-MAIL THAT VINCE HAS SENT TO HIS FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES.

 

     "I know that this may shock you, but the words “Hall of Fame” and Vince Leonetti can now be used in the same sentence.

  Back in the mid-50’s I was younger, swifter and a bit leaner.  I played football and ran track. During my senior year I served as assistant coach to the freshman team and stayed in that position for 2 additional years.  Either I impressed someone during those days, or everyone’s memory has faded so badly that they can’t remember how I performed.

 Needless to say, I am honored and thrilled that West Philadelphia Catholic High School has elected me to the Sports Hall of Fame for Football & Track.  Participating in the sports was a fantastic experience outweighed only by the education received from the Christian Brothers and the continued friendships that have lasted a lifetime."
