Derby High School's Athletic Hall of Fame Banquet Scores Big
|The Class of 2015|
One of DeFilippo's standout performers on the field, Vince Greco, was commonly referred to as one of the best lineman in the state. As a matter of fact, Greco was voted the #1 all-time center in Connecticut by the Register. As anchor of the Derby line for three years, Greco earned All-State honors twice, and the Red Raiders went undefeated each year he started. He was also a four-year starter in baseball, and led the basketball team to two tournament wins during his All-Valley senior campaign. Vince embarked on a successful college career at Wake Forest, where he excelled for the Demon Deacons.
|The DHS Athletic Hall of Fame Committee|
"This is a town, with a rich tradition," said Cannici. "History can never be erased, these legendary inductees deserve to be recognized for everything they did as athletes. We as a committee could not be prouder then we were this past Saturday evening, a new tradition has begun. The Derby Athletic Hall of Fame is here to stay. Nothing is given in this town, everything we get we earn."
