For the past 11 years the FDL HS Athletic Hall of Fame has been a great weekend of celebration with family & friends of the Hall of Fame inductions. Unfortunately the Covid 19 has changed our lives with the unknown future. The 2020 FDL HS Athletic Hall of Fame inductions have been delayed to the 2021 Hall of Fame weekend – that date TBD. We want family & fiends to celebrate together with no restrictions. At this time the 2020 induction plaques will be placed on the FDL HS Athletic Hall of Fame wall at FDL HS.

The Cardinal Athletic Alumni Association, Inc. would like to take this time to congratulate Mike Cowan on his induction into the FDL HS Athletic Hall of Fame.
