O&B Club Announces 2011 Hall of Athletic Honor Class
GETTYSBURG, Pa. – Goals, points, saves, strikeouts, and touchdowns will abound when five former Gettysburg College student-athletes become the newest members of The Rudisill Hall of Athletic Honor this October during Homecoming Weekend.
The Class of 2011 includes… ace pitcher Marc Favieri ’90…, who was recognized at the Hall of Athletic Honor Induction Banquet hosted by the Orange and Blue Club on Friday, Oct. 21, 2011.
Marc Favieri is arguably one of the best pitchers to ever take the mound at Gettysburg and he is the only All-American in school history, earning first-team honors in 1990. The native of Cherry Hill, N.J., helped the Bullets capture the Middle Atlantic Conference title as a freshman before going 5-1 with a 3.14 ERA as the team won 28 games and competed in the NCAA Tournament for the first time during his sophomore campaign.
After logging seven more wins in 1989, Favieri turned in one of the greatest single seasons on the mound in school history as a senior. In addition to earning All-America and all-region accolades, he was named MVP of the MAC Southern Division after finishing with a 7-3 record, 1.13 ERA, and 82 strikeouts in 79.1 innings. He logged seven complete games and five shutouts, including a no-hitter against Muhlenberg College. Favieri, who spent his entire tenure under the guidance of John Campo, concluded his career as the school’s career leader in wins (20), appearances (46), shutouts (8), and innings pitched (250.2).
