New Milford High School

Athletic Hall of Fame Club

Dear friend of New Milford High School athletics,

As you likely know, the New Milford High School Athletic Hall of Fame hosted its inaugural induction banquet Oct. 28, 2017 at Fairview Farm Golf Course in Harwinton.

 

Twelve coaches and athletes representing a span of nearly 100 years of Green Wave sports were honored as our first class, including iconic coach/athletic director Joseph Wiser and legendary coaches Russell Devin and Fran Zaloski, as well as nine exceptional athletes ranging from Fred Collins, Class of 1933, to Ashley O’Connor, Class of 2010.

 

We hosted our second annual induction banquet on Oct. 27, 2018 at Fairview when we honored a dozen more athletes, ranging from Alfred "Sonny" Zaloski, Class of 1947, to Conor Kirkegard, Class of 2012.

 

For our third class of 12 inductees, due to be honored at our next banquet on Nov. 2, 2019, check back to our home page.

 

For the inductees' full Green Wave biographies and plenty of photos, see the accompanying pages here on this website.

We are a non-profit, 501(c) (3) organization and hope you will join us in our quest to honor the finest of Green Wave athletes, coaches and teams. Toward that goal, we have created the New Milford High School Athletic Hall of Fame Club.
