The Mid Mon Valley All Sports Hall of Fame (MMVASHOF) will hold its 25th annual banquet at the St. Spyridon Hellenic Center, 1205 Grand Blvd., Monessen, on Friday, June 15 at 5:30 p.m.

This year, six new inductees will be welcomed into the Mon Valley Sports Hall of Fame, conceived by newsmen Floyd France and John Bunardzya. With the Class of 2018, the total number of inductees is now 248. The original Mon Valley Sports Writers Hall of Fame started in 1951 with the selection of Stan Musial and Bert Rechichar.

The Class of 2018 is comprised of Vinnie Graham, Ernest “Roger” Hotz, Jamont Kinds, Dan LaCarte, Jamie Reader, and the deceased John Konek. General Chairman of the Sports Hall of Fame Steve Russell called the selections “the youngest class of inductees [that is] also recognizing the Mon Valley greats of the golden sports era.”

The MMVASHOF selection committee includes Chairman Brian Herman; Carl Crawley, Jr.; Dale Hamer; Tom Jenkins; Bill Kubin; Randy Marino; Stan Milchovich; Steve Russell; Bill Hughes; and Dennis Stitch.

The MMVASHOF is one of 28 chapters of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame, made up of four geographical regions. Organized with its induction class in 1963, the state ceremonial dinner rotates between four regions.

Along with the Hall of Fame inductees, eighteen senior scholar athletes from local Mon Valley high schools will also be honored. Those high schools include Belle Vernon Area, Bentworth, Brownsville, California, Charleroi, Elizabeth Forward, Monessen, Ringgold, and Yough.

Tickets are $45 and seating is limited. To reserve tickets or request program book sponsorship, contact Steve Russell, General Chairman, at 724-258-3823 or email
