Nice article: Russo makes OATCCC HOF

https://www.cincinnati.com/story/spo...me/1026216001/

I know his XC team has not been as good the past few years, but they had a heckuva thing going for a long time. I hated it when they whupped The Purple Pack.

I did not know that he was a member of the coaches association.

I always thought he boycotted the Indoor State meet because he was against the association.

This baffles me on that level.

On a professional level- he 100% agree he should be in there.

Being a member of the OATCCC (or any other association) is NOT a qualification to being nominated or chosen to be in the OATCCC Hall of Fame.
the are many HOF members who are not or have not been members.
Coach Russo is deserving AND someone took the time and effort to fill out the nomination form correctly and on time.
There are many other deserving athletes and coaches who could be in that have not been nominated. The forms are on the OATCCC website.

Congrats Coach Russo

Frank Russo has a great combination of state titles. He has won two in track & field (1994 and 2011) and two in cross country (2005 & 2006). His brother Ron has also won four state titles all in cross country and all consecutive. Frank has state runner up finishes in both cross country and track while Ron has cross country runner up finishes in cross country only. Here is the article about Ron and his lady Cardinals, don't know if he is in the Hall of Fame or not, but he should be.
