Athletic Hall of Fame

The Orlando Lutheran Academy Athletic Department in association with The Crusader Club is pleased to announce the creation of The Orlando Lutheran Academy Athletic Hall of Fame. The OLA Athletic Hall of Fame is created to recognize, promote and honor the memory of student-athletes, coaches, and athletic boosters who brought attention, fame, glory and loyalty to The Orlando Lutheran Academy over the years.  The goal is to keep alive the glory days of the past and inspire current OLA athletes.

 

Against some adverse odds over the school's 30+ years, OLA athletic programs have produced state, regional, district, and conference championship teams and student-athletes, as well as numerous Prep and Lutheran All-American, All-State, All-County and All-Conference student athletes.  Along the way, student-athletes with leadership, self-discipline, unselfishness, and courage have rallied their teams to achieve the things that looked impossible.  We also celebrate individual boosters who stand out for their extraordinary support of the OLA core values of integrity, excellence and service.

 

The Orlando Lutheran Academy Athletic Hall of Fame will be sponsored by the OLA Athletic Department, with full support of The Crusader Club, and charged with keeping the Crusader tradition and spirit alive.
