About Suffolk County Sports Hall of Fame

T he Suffolk Sports Hall of Fame (SSHOF) is a Not-For-Profit 501C-3 corporation established in 1990 to honor outstanding people, living or deceased, who have gained prominence and have made substantial contributions on behalf of themselves and Suffolk County, in the fields of professional and amateur sports. Since that time individuals have been selected as inductees of the SSHOF each year. Our goal is to honor outstanding people in professional and amateur sports covering Suffolk County, NY.

The SSHOF will educate today’s students and adults about cultural, historical and human contributions and achievements of the honorees in the world of athletics.

Originally founded in 1990 by Gaetano “Butch” Dellecave, the leadership was passed to Edward J. Morris, who served as Executive Director of the Hall from 2000-2017. In September 2017, Chris R. Vaccaro was named Executive Director.
