This will be the second consecutive year since 1995 that a class will not be inducted into the Mid-Mon Valley All-Sports Hall of Fame. The Class of 2022 will be comprised of coach Billy Connors, the late Major Corley, coach Jim Dumm, Bob Rosborough, Jon Green, and Ben McCauley. The Hall of Fame selections have been contacted by chairman Dennis Stitch and are in agreement with the postponement.

Because of the challenges with COVID-19 virus chairman Dennis Stitch announced “it was necessary to cancel the banquet yet again. In conversation with the inductees, while disappointed, they were all very supportive and understanding of the decision. To our supporters, the MMVASHOF is thankful for your commitment, dedication, and unwavering support over the years.  You are the pillars that help keep our organization strong and vibrant in the Mon Valley. We truly appreciate all you do. As we go through these uncharted waters, we not only will stay together, we will thrive together!”
