Herricks Athletics Hall of Fame

Herricks High School, Home of the Highlanders

Herricks has had a long, storied history of athletic successes and glory. However, unlike many surrounding communities, our community has never had a vehicle for celebrating the great achievements of those student-athletes.

About the Hall of Fame

A group of alumni and current Herricks residents have now organized to create the Herricks High School Athletic Hall of Fame (HHSAHF). Drawn from all age groups and eras, these women and men are familiar with and care deeply about the Herricks community and the history of its student-athletes. As a result of the formation of HHSAHF, Herricks will now have many exciting opportunities to celebrate those individuals and teams who have made valuable contributions to Herricks throughout the years.

THE MISSION of Herricks High School Athletic Hall of Fame is to honor and perpetuate the memory of all former Herricks High School students, coaches and associated persons who have brought pride and distinction to the school system, the Town of North Hempstead and themselves; to instill and continue the tradition of excellence that has been characteristic of Herricks athletes; to link past and current generations of student-athletes; and to encourage current student-athletes to embrace the many opportunities available to them through team work, determination and dedication.

OUR GOALS are: to indentify (All County, All Long Island, All-State) the first inductees to the Herricks High School Athletic Hall of Fame; to host this year’s 1st Hall of Fame Banquet that will honor those inductees; and to create an organization that institutionalizes and sustains the Herricks High School Athletic Hall of Fame.
