Salvatore J. "Sully" Greco '39

Inducted Feb. 2, 1979

The tide of many a boxing meet was turned in Catholic's favor by Greco's performance in the 155-pound weight class. Despite being plagued by injuries, Greco was a strong member of the 1936 Orange Bowl team. Greco was awarded the John J. McGann award as Catholic's outstanding boxer of 1938. He notched 20 career victories in the ring for CU.
