Salem Hall of Fame to induct 5 new members

(Continued)

Gary Malisos

Class of 1994

Football coach Todd Seastedt colorfully described the 6-0, 195-pound Eagle-Tribune All-Star linebacker this way: “He’ll take your head off and break your ribs on the way by.”

Malisos led the Blue Devils in tackles two straight years and as a senior was named Salem’s top male athlete of the fall. He captained the N.H. Shrine team his senior year.

He placed third at the indoor New Englands in track as a senior with a throw of 51-8 in the shot put. He also earned Eagle-Tribune All-Star honors that season. Malisos also won Meet of Champions that winter (49-6 1/2) and the Class L title that spring (48-11).

He starred for the Springfield College football team, earning second-team all-Freedom Conference honors one year and earning team defensive MVP honors as a senior. He was also tri-captain as a senior.

Pat Halligan

Class of 2006

“The Hammer” won the Eagle-Tribune’s Max Bishop Award as a junior, symbolic of the top three-sport athlete from our area’s 23 schools.

The 6-0, 235-pounder was an Eagle-Tribune All-Star that fall in his first year playing organized football. The fullback/linebacker made 67 tackles and rushed 94 times for 702 yards. He led the area with 34 goals in hockey en route to Eagle-Tribune All-Star honors. In the spring he batted .319 and drove in 22 runs to help Salem reach the Class L baseball finals.

As a senior he was named an Eagle-Tribune All-Star in hockey for the third time (he finished with a Salem record 89 career goals) and rushed for 892 yards and scored 15 TDs to repeat as an Eagle-Tribune football all-star. He batted .305 with 15 runs and 14 RBIs.

He was edged out for the Bishop Award, which would have made him the only two-time winner in the award’s now 24-year history.
