ESCC Hall of Fame inducts 12 on April 12

    Three professional athletes and several accomplished athletes and coaches highlight an impressive group of 12 who will be inducted into the 13th Class of the East Suburban Catholic Conference Hall of Fame on Thursday, April 12 at Abbington Banquet Hall in Glen Ellyn.
    The class is headlined by a pair of NFL standout tight ends, including Carmel Catholic’s Sean McGrath and Joliet Catholic’s Coby Fleener. McGrath currently plays for the Los Angeles Chargers, and the former athlete at Eastern Illinois and Henderson State (Ark.) has also had NFL stints with Seattle and Kansas City. A former Indianapolis Colt, Fleener has scored 22 NFL touchdowns and currently plays for the New Orleans Saints.
    Meanwhile, inductee and the No. 3 all-time leading women’s basketball scorer at DePaul- Joliet Catholic’s Allie Quigley- has played in the WNBA since 2008 and currently hails with the Chicago Sky.
    The evening will also feature the first awarding of the Dave Mattio ESCC Man of the Year Award to JCA’s Dan Sharp. The 21-year Athletic Director at JCA also won six IHSA state football titles as head coach and was a dear friend of the late Marian Catholic AD Mattio for decades.
    Great athletes are not produced without great leadership, including a pair of coach inductees. Michael Jankowski has coached cross country, football and track at Notre Dame for 26 years, including head coach stints in cross country and track. Carmel’s Robert Kuykendall has mentored wrestling athletes for 36 years, including a head coach capacity since 2008.
