2011 Crusader Legends Celebration

WORCESTER, Mass. - Three all-time Crusader greats were honored at halftime of the Feb. 12 game between Holy Cross and Bucknell. Jack Foley (Class of 1962) and Ronald K. Perry (Class of 1980) were on hand to witness their jerseys being unveiled in the Hart Center rafters — only the second time Holy Cross has held such a ceremony for former basketball players. On Nov. 16, 2008, George Kaftan (Class of 1949), Bob Cousy (Class of 1950), Togo Palazzi (Class of 1954) and Tom Heinsohn (Class of 1956) received the same honor. With the addition of Foley and Perry, each of the six first team All-Americans in Holy Cross history now have their jerseys in the Hart Center rafters.

In addition, Ronald S. Perry (Class of 1954), a national champion at Holy Cross in two sports (baseball and basketball) was honored for his outstanding contributions to the Holy Cross athletic program, and his unique place in Crusader athletic history. He was presented with a display plaque which now hangs  in the lobby of the Hart Center.
