John Duggan, John Mulkerrins, Mike Mulkerrins and the late Lynn Leon were inducted into the Catholic Charities CYO Athletics Hall of Fame at the 10th annual hall of fame dinner on March 25. The event was held at the Father O’Reilly Catholic Charities CYO Center in St. Emydius gym in San Francisco. The inductees were selected by open nominations from parishioners, CYO participants and CYO Athletics alumni in the archdiocese.

John Duggan has been a staple of CYO Athletics at St. Stephen and St. Paul parishes for more than 50 years. He has coached at St. Stephen for nearly 20 years.

Leon, honored posthumously, served as an athletic director, coach and board member with CYO Athletics for 25 years.

John Mulkerrins has been a physical education teacher, athletic director, seventh grade teacher and coach during the past 26 years at St. Cecilia Parish. He has also coached at Holy Name and taught players from both parishes.

Mike Mulkerrins has served as a coach, referee, athletic director and board member for the past 25 years at St. Cecilia.

CYO Athletics also recognized four “Coaches in the Spotlight.” To earn this honor, a coach must show exemplary commitment to their program and team(s), serve as a model for other coaches to emulate, demonstrate respect for fellow coaches, parents, players and officials, exhibit concern for players outside of the game and promote the values of CYO Athletics and its mission. The honorees are Mel Abueg, St. Paul Parish; Robert Arevalo, St. Anthony-Immaculate Conception; Meaghan Delahunty, St. Brendan; Bill Sicord, St. Gabriel.
