The First Six Enter the Ring of Fame

Six former football standouts were honored in a pre-game ceremony at the Oct. 2 Homecoming matchup between Holy Cross and Fordham. The inaugural class of the Crusader Football Legends Ring of Fame includes John Provost ’75, Vince Promuto ’60, Edmund Murphy ’43, the late Bill Osmanski, D.D.S., ’39 (whose award was accepted by his son, Bob Osmanski), Gill Fenerty ’86 and Gordie Lockbaum ’88. Only former Crusader football players who have been elected to the Holy Cross Varsity Club Hall of Fame are eligible for this honor. The inductees were selected by a committee including representatives from the Holy Cross athletic and development departments, the Gridiron Club Leadership Council and the Holy Cross Varsity Club, along with fan voting on goholycross.com.
