ABOUT THE SAINT JOSEPH ATHLETICS
HALL OF FAME
The Saint Joseph Athletics Hall of Fame provides an opportunity for followers of the school’s storied sports programs to nominate student-athletes, coaches, athletics administrators, teams, and people who have significantly contributed to the advancement of interscholastic sports at Saint Joseph High School for induction to the prestigious Athletics Hall of Fame.
A total of 27 individuals were inducted to the Saint Joseph Athletics Hall of Fame during a consecutive four-year stretch beginning in 1999.
Following a 17-year hiatus, the Athletics Hall of Fame was resurrected in 2019, a year during which 11 individuals, one duo and one team were inducted.
The 2021 Athletics Hall of Fame class, featuring 10 individuals and one team, was inducted during a ceremony and dinner at the Metuchen Golf and County Club in October 2021.
One of Middlesex County’s most successful scholastic athletics program since the high school was founded in 1961, Saint Joseph has won more than 160 county or conference titles and more than 40 state crowns in 15 varsity sports.
Saint Joseph has produced countless All-Americans, All-State performers, All-County or All-Conference players and NCAA student-athletes.
Inductees will be selected during the month of April in odd calendar years and feted that same year during a Saint Joseph Athletics Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
"Fr. Andre' Coindre, founder of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart, has always instructed the Brothers to honor and to celebrate achievements,” school officials said.
“The Brothers of the Sacred Heart and the Partners in Mission (Faculty and Staff) continue this mandate by honoring those Saint Joseph men who have brought honor to Saint Joseph High School and to their families.
“We all know that honorable and successful athletics programs teach invaluable lessons to all stakeholders, particularly to student-athletes, and one of the most important lessons is that athletics bring a school community together. We are blessed to have so many young men who have been entrusted to our care not only survive in the athletic arena but to thrive at all levels of competition.
“And, what better way to honor their sacrifice and commitment to a cause greater than their own than an Athletics Hall of Fame."
The inductees’ names will appear on a Saint Joseph Athletics Hall of Fame display in the school.
Student-athlete inductees must be Saint Joseph graduates, must have lettered in a varsity sport, must have attended Saint Joseph High School for at least three years and must possess a record of high performance and excellence.
Coaches, athletics administrators, teams and people who have significantly contributed to the advancement of interscholastic sports at Saint Joseph High School may also be nominated for induction.
Inductees bring recognition, acclaim, and pride to the Brothers of the Sacred Heart and to Saint Joseph High School. Their record of sportsmanship and lifestyle of integrity and probity makes them role models for current and future Saint Joseph High School student-athletes.
Class of 2023 inductees will be selected in April 2023 by a selection committee comprised of five alumni, two Partners in Mission and chaired by Ryan Carter, a 1991 alumnus and Saint Joseph Athletics Hall of Fame member.
The Hall of Fame selection committee bridges the decades spanning the school’s founding through the present and represents a cross section of Saint Joseph’s athletics programs.
An advisory committee consisting of current and former Saint Joseph coaches, Partners in Mission and alumni will assist the selection committee.
