Six People Inducted into OFA Sports Hall of Fame


Friday night was a night to remember for six former Owego Free Academy athletes or contributors who were inducted into OFA’s Class 2019 sports Hall of Fame — only the second class of inductees since the Hall was established in 2018.

The recently elected inductees are: Michael Steele, Class of 1964; Wendy Collins, Class of 1986; and Joseph Palladino, Class of 1988, as athletes … Thomas Morrissey as coach; Richard Brown as coach and contributor; and Thomas Bryant, Class of 1968 as athlete, coach and contributor to the school’s sports program.

The six inductees’ plaques were added to the Sports Hall of Fame display outside the high school gymnasium
