2023 Class of Athletics Hall of Fame

2023 Class Athletics Hall of Fame

Father Ryan High School is proud to announce the 2023 Class of the school's Athletics Hall of Fame: six athletes, one contributor, and two teams whose accomplishments showcase the legacy of the historic school’s successful athletic programs in Nashville and the State of Tennessee.

These athletes and leaders represent classes from 1935 to 2010 and were selected from more than 100 nominations submitted by our community. They will be formally inducted into the Hall of Fame during a special ceremony on September 7, 2023, at Father Ryan and will be the honorary captains at the school's September 8 home Football game. 

Ann Mullins '03, Director of Athletics, said that she was pleased with the response from the
Father Ryan community. “I am thrilled to read and talk about the nominees each year, and I am
always touched by their stories and their accomplishments,” she said. “From legendary athletes from the 30s, 40s, and 50s to outstanding student-athletes from our more recent history, this Class is another tribute to the legacy of Father Ryan. Add in the two historic teams from 1965 and 2002 and the presence of Mr. Langdon, our longest-serving faculty member, and we have a truly exceptional Hall of Fame class.  I thank the Hall of Fame Selection Committee for their outstanding work and look forward to celebrating these men and women in September.”
