Every two years, the Hall of Fame Committee selects athletes and coaches from each decade for induction into the Saint John’s Athletic Hall of Fame. During the Hall of Fame Dinner and Reception, a recipient of the Bruce S. Kopka '71 Memorial Alumni Award for courage, perseverance and character is also recognized.
In the long history of Saint John’s there have been many outstanding athletic teams, many outstanding athletes, and many dedicated coaches who have demonstrated the character and pursuit of excellence associated with Saint John’s High School. In considering these achievements, one can understand what a difficult task that faces the selection committee and how justly proud these inductees, their families, friends, teammates and classmates can be.
