Hall of Fame

Since 2011, the Wyomissing Football Association (WFA) has been dedicated to supporting the Wyo football program and bringing our football community together. Each year the WFA inducts into the Wyomissing Football Hall of Fame a select group of players and coaches it feels has brought honor to the football program and their school. These men achieved great personal and team success on the gridiron, received numerous accolades, and played or coached at the highest level for Wyomissing High School, West Reading High School or Wyomissing Area Junior/Senior High School.

  • The WFA Board will determine whether a nominee will be placed on the Hall of Fame ballot based on the nominee’s football-related resume as provided by the nominating WFA Member.  It is important that the Member take the time to provide a compelling football resume for their nominee.  Keep in mind that non-football biographical information is not considered relevant and will be removed from the resume.  The Board reserves the right to edit all submitted biographical information.
