Lou Hanna, a Corry coaching great, is among a class of seven who will be inducted into the Slippery Rock University Athletic Hall of Fame this fall.
Hanna, who died in 1983, graduated from Slippery Rock in 1940 after earning All-America honors as a halfback.
Hanna was known in Erie County as coach of the Corry football team for 22 seasons. He had a 127-63-7 record as a football coach and also served as Corry athletic director.
Among the Rock inductees are three other athletes with District 10 connections: Warren native Rick Allen, Grove City native Steve Rihel and Slippery Rock native Fred Lucas.
You can read more about Hanna in this week’s On Campus notebook.
