Hall of Fame

Hall of Fame

Welcome to the Falcons Hall of Fame! Unlike most Halls of Fame, induction into this hall does not require greatness, or even goodness. We judge not on PED use, because it's pretty obvious none of our members have used ANY drugs that would be considered "performance enhancing".

Our ONLY criterion for induction into our Hall of Fame is tenure. If you retire from the WMSPL having served 10 or more years as a Falcon, you're in!
