The 2022 inductee class includes: Richard Freda, William Bernard Wilkes II, Terry Dehere, Grover Edwards, Brian Ellerson, Angela Zampella, Lou Taglieri, Tiffany Aciz-Meyer, Danny Ortiz, Wilmer Torres, Tim McManus, Pete Mancini, Robert Belfiore, and Dave Webster.

This year’s class is a wonderful mix of greats in a range of sports across different eras, according to the county. The evening will be a delightful opportunity to honor these men and women who proudly represented their schools, the county, and the nation in venues in local neighborhoods and around the world.

The Hall will also honor Coach Shaheen Holloway and the Saint Peter’s University Men’s Basketball Team with The Inaugural Elnardo Webster Award for Excellence as part of a ceremony sure to be full of wonderful memories any many tearful reunions of players, coaches, family and friends. During March Madness this year, the Peacocks made it all the way to the Elite Eight in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Tournament.

Hudson County Commissioners Kenneth Kopacz and Anthony Romano will serve as co-masters of ceremonies. Both are members of the HCSHF’s Board of Trustees.

Tickets for the event are on sale now and can be ordered online at HCSHOF2022.eventbrite.com. For more information, call 201-459-2070 or visit the HCSHF website at hudsoncountysportshalloffame.org.

“We are proud to honor these remarkable men and women who excelled not only as athletes but as members of our community,” said DeGise. “I hope we have a huge crowd on hand October 13th to cheer their very deserved induction into this 25th class of the Hudson County Sports Hall of Fame.”
