H.S. Sports Hall of Fame Coming to Easton

The High School Sports Hall of Fame Museum could open in Pennsylvania by the summer of 2011.

The museum in Easton plans to promote itself heavily as a field trip destination for elementary, middle and high school students around the Northeast. Nearby is the Crayola Factory, which draws 300,000 visitors a year.

The museum is to be operated by the Easton-based National High School Coaches Association, which selects national coaches and athletes of the year in 20 sports. Inductees get the JAIME Award -- which stands for Just Athletics Isn't Meaningful Enough.

Retired college wrestling coach Robert Ferraro Sr. is chief executive of the coaches association. He says what's most important is being a good person, not athletic performance. The museum is to feature a "Hall of Achievement" featuring standout prep athletes who went on to attain career success.
