The South High Bulldog Pride Hall of Fame welcomed five new members at the 11th annual induction ceremony on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017.

The Class of 2017 includes:

  • The late Tim Pratt, Class of ’79, was a 30-year New York State Trooper who was a fixture at the South High Marathon Dance. He was so proud that his class helped start the event back in 1978, and was a long-time volunteer at the marathon dance. A beloved Trooper, Tim was South Glens Falls through and through, and loved being a Bulldog. Trooper Pratt was tragically killed on duty while helping a lost truck driver last October.
  • Rich McCabe, Class of ’75, a three-sport athlete at South High and now one of the winningest boys’ soccer coaches in New York State history. In 36 seasons, his teams are 551-146-36, a winning percentage of .766. He has been Section II, Class D Coach of the Year 13 times, and was New York State Small School (Class B, C and D) Coach of the Year in 2011. He is second all-time in Section II boys’ soccer wins.
  • Joe Iuliano started the South Glens Falls pee-wee wrestling program with Dick Stewart in 1977, the first year of a 30-year teaching and coaching career in the South Glens Falls Central School District. The year before, in 1976, at the age of 30, he came in second in the U.S. Olympic wrestling trials, just missing an opportunity to represent his country in the Summer Olympics in Montreal. After coaching modified, junior varsity and varsity wrestling for 13 years, Joe retired from coaching wrestling with an overall record 178-12.
  • Chet Siuda, Class of ’66, was a three-sport standout who, after graduating from Hamilton College and serving in the Coast Guard, co-founded Crown Advisors Ltd. in 1981 and then founded Lighthouse Capital Inc. in 1996, serving as chairman and CEO until his retirement. A man of exceptional financial acumen and a Life Trustee of Hamilton College, his generosity helped the college renovate a dormant dormitory into the Siuda House for Admission and Financial Aid.
  • Mike Sharrow was a beloved physical education teacher and coach in South Glens Falls for 33 years, who retired in 2003. Mike coached all levels of football, basketball, varsity cross country and varsity golf. Mike was best known as the coach of the boys’ basketball team during an amazing run from 1980 to 1983. The Bulldogs won three straight Foothills Council titles and were at times the #1 team in the state. A native of Witherbee, N.Y., and a tremendous athlete himself, he walked on to the University of Buffalo football team, earning a full scholarship, and was one of the region’s top amateur golfers for years.
