Longtime athletic director and former head football coach Walt Hameline was inducted into the Staten Island Sports Hall of Fame’s Class of 2019. (The induction ceremony had been delayed by the pandemic.)
“Walt Hameline, who was 29 when he became the head football coach at Wagner College, guided the Seahawks to the 1987 NCAA Division III national championship and the school’s first and only FCS playoff victory,” said his Hall of Fame citation.
“Hameline’s 223 wins over 34 seasons put him in the top 50 in college football history, fifth among FCS coaches. The 2012 FCS National Coach of the Year is also the longest-tenured athletic director in Division I sports.”
