What is the Athletic Wall of Fame?

The Notre Dame College Prep Athletic Wall of Fame (WOF) stands strong in the gym lobby as testimony to the efforts and accomplishments of all Notre Dame College Prep athletes over the past 60+ years.

The idea of the Athletic Wall of Fame originated in the mid 1970's by then Athletic Director, Fr. Tom Kim with assistance from Fr. John Corcoran and Fr. Joseph Stroot. On February 17, 1979, Notre Dame College Prep inducted its first Wall of Fame class of 49 athletes. Currently there are 148 athletes and 3 athletic teams on the Wall of Fame.

Candidates for the Notre Dame College Prep Wall of Fame must have achieved a high level of athletic success while attending NDCP.
