Suffield Athletic Hall of Fame Update

Print More

The Suffield Athletic Hall of Fame (SAHOF) Committee has endured some difficult times over the last several years. A combination of the loss of several key members and the pandemic caused the Committee to go virtually dormant for a while, but the organization managed to continue giving out scholarships to student athletes every spring and is now regaining some momentum as it prepares to induct a new class of Hall of Famers in late 2024 / early 2025.

However, fund raising suffered during those down times, and a challenge has arisen in that Suffield High School has run out of room in the cases that are the home of the SAHOF Inductee plaques and all of the school’s athletic trophies and memorabilia. As a result, SAHOF is looking to raise funds to cover the cost of new trophy cases, and also to help with the cost of scholarships.

Bob Cecchini is proposing to step up to this challenge. Known as Mr. “C” to many, he has been a fixture as a coach, Athletic Director and Administrator both in Suffield and at the State level for the last 60+ years. He was an inductee in the inaugural SAHOF class in 2002 and has contributed countless hours and infinite wisdom as a member of the SAHOF Committee for over 20 years. All good things must come to an end though, and Mr. “C” has announced that he will be stepping down after this next induction cycle as he approaches 90 years of age. As a parting gift and to provide some incentive for others he and his wife Beverly have pledged to match the combined amount of funds donated for this project within a generous limit. The SAHOF Committee is overwhelmed by his gesture, and hopeful that others will donate as a tribute to his service to the community over the years as well as to recognize the achievements of Suffield’s outstanding athletes.
