    Along with some highly successful prep and collegiate athletes, and legendary coaches, the 12th East Suburban Catholic Conference Hall of Fame class includes an all-time NCAA Football passing leader, an Olympian and a distinguished longtime administrator. In all, nine individuals were inducted on Thursday, April 6 at Abbington Banquet Hall in Glen Ellyn.
    Benet Academy’s Dan LeFevour ’05 headlines an impressive class, as he followed up an impressive Redwing career at Central Michigan University, becoming the lone quarterback in NCAA history with 12,000 passing yards and 2,500 rushing yards. LeFevour currently plays in the Canadian Football League with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
    Notre Dame 2003 graduate Abe Badmus added to his ESCC MVP honor by leading Bucknell University to two NCAA Tournament appearances during his span as a four-year starter. He also competed with the Nigerian National Olympic Team.
