Cathedral Prep Inducts New Class into the Athletic Hall of Fame

The 13th ever class of the Cathedral Prep Athletic Hall of Fame was inducted on Thursday, October 14th , in the Mullen Gymnasium of the Hagerty Family Events Center. Seven individuals and two teams were honored for their athletic accomplishments while suiting up for the Ramblers.   

The following were inducted:

Eric Carlson '00- a two-sport star in football and baseball, Eric still dots the Prep record books. He remains in the top five all-time in pass attempts, completions, yards, and touchdowns. 

Pat Czytuck '70 (coach)- for more than 40 years, Pat has been a line coach for the Ramblers, helping to produce countless college prospects as well a formidable offense. Part of a staff that has won five state championships.

Tom Dance ‘04- a two-sport success in football and track & field, Tom remains the only person in school history to win an individual state championship in track. In fact, he did it twice in the 110-meter hurdles.  

Jim Gemler '98 named the top athlete in the school during his junior and senior seasons, Jim was a standout and contributor in three sports in football, basketball and baseball.  

Dorian Hager '93- helped jump start another era of outstanding wrestling at Prep. He won a state championship his junior season and was in line to repeat before an injury knocked him out in the title bout in 1993.

Dan Sculley '78- right before the Ramblers landed in Hershey, Dan led his team to the cusp in 1978. A huge presence in the paint, he averaged 16.8 points a game. His 471 points as a senior remain the 12th highest in school history.

Andy Sisinni '80- a key reason the Ramblers were able to win their first PIAA basketball championship in 1980, Andy was a force on both ends of the floor. He would later play Division I at Duquesne.

1982 Football Team- this group was the third addition under Mina George, and perhaps his finest. Littered with Division I players, they received state and national acclaim in going 10-0.

2008 Golf Team- this team won Prep their first-ever team state golf championship, paced by Hall of Famers in coach Jim Sertz and number one player Gregor Orlando.
