The Cardinals are honoring some of their greats throughout the season with the presence of permanent signs representing some of the winningest teams, players and coaches. Current coach Steve Trivisonno tweeted a picture of a couple of the signs earlier this week, dubbing the collection the Mentor Football Wall of Fame.
Athletic Director Jeff Casella said there are no formal plans for the wall during Friday's game, but he hopes some of the players and coaches will come back at different points of the season to be honored.
Dan Ryczek, Rick Galbos, Paul Ryczek, Don Martin, Tom Barndt, Bob Hallen, Bart Tanksi and Mitch Trubisky are the players whose painted replica jerseys are seen on the wall just under the press box, according to Ohio Varsity.
Coaches Dick Crum and Dr. Lee Tressel are also honored.
Here are the teams on the wall:
- 1955 (10-0)
- 1968 (10-0)
- 2003 (10-1)
- 2006 (13-2, state runner-up)
- 2007 (11-3, state runner-up)
- 2012 (12-2, state semifinalist)
